Blknonprofit stands for Blackbaud Nonprofit Solutions, a San Diego based software firm https://www.blackbaud.com/fundraising-crm/. Their software handles credit card processing for non-profits. In my own case, I make a regular contribution to a university using a debit card. The contribution shows on my online banking account as "Blknonprofit (pending) San Diego, CA" initially, and then when it finally posts the non-profit name shows up as part of the description. Before calling your bank to report fraud, check to make sure you haven't made any charitable contributions on your credit card in a matching amount recently.
BLK*NONPROFIT SAN DIEGO CA
What is it?
I a charges for $30 on my bank account. Turns out it for my registering for a charitable walk to benefit melanoma research. Valid.
I had two charges of $250.00 made this morning. Fraud
A charge of approx $640 appeared on my B of A VISA 2/11/14 at about 5 pm my time. B of A notified me with a fraud alert 2/12/14 due to "suspicious activity" on my account the day before. This was the only unauthorized charge. No idea what it is, but neither of us authorized it, and our cards have not been out of our possession. The bank removed the charge, changed the account number, issued new cards.
After a minute with the rep at the bank I realized it was a donation to the NC Arboretum.
No idea what it is. Charge for $25. I'm getting my bank to look into it
I had fraud charge in amount of $5 yestready evening. It said BLK*NONPROFIT (PENDING). Thanks god, my card had been blocked by that time already!
This is a fraudulent charge. I never authorized it. Will be calling my bank tomorrow. Sick of changing my card #. Mine did not say San Diego. Just BLK nonprofit.
BLK*NON PROFIT fraud charge for $100 on my credit card. Working with credit card company for refund.5/22/2014
I recently had two fraud charges purchased on my card one for 600+ and another for 500+. Luckily my bank notified me and I looked at my account. I noticed there were 2 charges that said "BLK Non Profit" for $5.00 each so I'm assuming one charge for each attempted fraud all within an hour time frame of each purchase. I know for a fact it has to be fraud because I haven't made a donation to anywhere recently. Hope this helps...
I gave money to PKD foundation in August of 2014 thru BLK foundation as one time. Now a charge showed up on my chase card as pending charge. Never authorized it. I called the bank and they said they cannot do anything until it is posted. This is a fraud... I agree with the suggestion of not using a card for donations. Just write a cheque! Too much hassle otherwise. I may have to change my card again.
Yesterday I had about 10 charges for $1 here $5 there from BLK*NONPROFIT Thank goodness my credit card company called me. I reported it as well as them closing my account on my request. It's a damn shame that people do this crap. I work too damn hard for my money and I wish I knew exactly who the person was so I could get them arrested for fraud and credit card theft (even though my credit card has never left me).They said that people are getting hit like this alot. So beware!
Was charged $50 fraudulently
This didn't seem familiar to me at first, but then I realized it was the ticket charge for an event I'm attending at the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis. I suspect from the other messages here that BLK*NONPROFIT is a credit card processing company for smaller nonprofits.
This charge showed up for me after becoming a member at the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis, MN.
valid charge. had a charge on my card after registering for the Heart Mini Walk benefitting the American Heart Association. BLK is BlackBaud, Inc. (A charitable payment processing company)
Was about to contest this charge as Fraudulent when I realized that it was a charge for tickets to an event at The Leonardo in Salt Lake City. This is a HORRIBLE IDEA: I work for a company that just spent a very large amount of money and time making sure our credit card listing was very understandable, to avoid the chargebacks that these poor nonprofits must get ALL the time thanks to this completely opaque company name.
My Bank of America check card has a charge named "CHECKCARD BLK*NONPROFIT(PEN SAN DIEGO CA ON 10/06". I can verify that I purchased a ticket online for a tour from the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust, a non-profit group in Chicago, IL. Information on Blackbaud checks out with the previous posters.
This appears to be the pending description of a donation my wife made to a local charity. There is a company called Blackbaud that has offices in San Diego. Coincidentally, I have even visited their office in Austin, TX. They provide software fundraising solutions to non profit organizations. After asking my wife about the $20 charge that appeared on our checking account, this transaction was verified as valid.
Just realized what it is after reading some posts. It's a membership fee for the non-profit Morton Grove Arboretum, in Illinois. All good.
these showed up on my statement. my card company said someone tried to charge $1024 they shut my card, and until they unlocked it so i could see the charges, and these 6 charges were all in 5 mins time, its all fraud.
Donate directly to charities using check or money orders, this online fraud stuff is showing a prepaid card is the only way to go, to protect yourself. Also its important to research the charity. here in California up to 3 % is allowed donated and the other 97 % is allowed to be used by the company doing the transactions. Like at the airport the fake nurses and asking to feed the hungry... they keep almost if ot all they collect, and they call it admin costs. So be careful.

Just did a little more looking. I work for a nonprofit, and there is a major credit card processor that we use called Blackbaud, and they have an office in San Diego. So that's what I think that BLK NONPROFIT stands for.
