We have been approached by our database vendor (Blackbaud) that we have outgrown our current record band (up to 75,000 constituent records) and now we either need to update our contract to the next level (up to 100,000 records) or reduce the number of records we currently have. We have never addressed the idea of constituent record deletion before and I'm more than a little uncomfortable in this process. Is there an industry standard that any of you have used to delete records? I understand that we would never want to delete alumni records or anyone who has made a gift to the institution. However, I'm wondering what criteria others have used when approached by such a situation. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
