Nonprofit software industry veteran William “Bill” C. Wood is the new president of FrontStream, Inc., a provider of fundraising and community engagement solutions. Wood is responsible for the company’s strategy, products, marketing and sales, professional services, operations and customer service activities.
Wood has more than 25 years’ experience in the nonprofit-focused technology space. A founding member of Blackbaud, he moved on to Access International where he served as president & CEO, guiding the company through a re-engineering and launch of its constituent relationship management and donor engagement solution for large, complex charities and local United Ways.
Wood was also founder & CEO of DonateTo.com, one of the industry’s first online giving platforms.
“Bill’s background, leadership, vision and deep understanding of the nonprofit and corporate CSR landscapes make him the ideal person to lead FrontStream going forward,” said Shawn Abrams, operating partner of Arsenal Capital Partners, FrontStream’s parent company.
“I’m also excited about introducing a fully integrated, strategic engagement platform that’s unlike anything available today,” said Wood. “A new solution for small and large charities alike that provides cross-discipline metrics & analysis stemming from a single constituent ID, best practice workflows and an intelligent engagement engine to increase participation, giving, impact and retention.”
FrontStream’s products include GiftWorks, BiddingForGood, FirstGiving & Artez, Employee Giving, and Truist. It employs more than 200 professionals with offices in Cambridge, Mass., Reston, Va., Lancaster, Pa., Toronto, Canada and Melbourne, Australia.
