Software Transition

This page will provide updates on the software transition occurring at the Foundation.


We are excided to announce a change and major upgrade to the software platform used at the Community Foundation.  Since 1998 we have used software called FIMS, which has been used by most Community Foundations.  In August 2022 we began a transition to Blackbaud’s Raiser’s Edge and Financial Edge, along with additional tools from NPact.


While the outcome will be enhanced services for fund holders and greater efficiency for CFES operations, there will be a period of transition.  

What is the current status?

As of April 23, we have invited all fund holders to access their fund online at https://cfes.spectrumportal.net. If you have not received an email with instructions on setting up your account, please contact David Plotts (dplotts@cfes.org).
