Notice Regarding Blackbaud Security Incident

We were recently notified of a security incident involving one of our third party vendors. Blackbaud, one of the world’s largest providers of non-profit software, cloud storage and fundraising platforms, experienced a security incident that may have involved the personal information of some individuals affiliated with Denison.

Blackbaud indicated that some of the following information may have been involved:

  • Demographic data (address, email, phone number)
  • Employment information
  • Information pertaining to someone’s relationship with Denison, including philanthropic giving history

Much of this information is publicly available. As part of their ongoing efforts to help prevent something like this from happening in the future, Blackbaud has implemented several changes that will better protect data from subsequent incidents.

Your relationship with the college is important to us and we will continue to work with our partners to protect the safety of your information. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Greg Bader, Vice President for Institutional Advancement at
