Classy

For our organization, Classy has been able to meet all of the needs we have. As a non-profit, Classy makes the process for our donors simple and seamless, something that is of the utmost importance. As Classy users, we're very happy with how easy the platform is to use and navigate.

Flipcause

Flipcause has been great for our organization and donors report good experiences using the platform. It has been fantastic for our annual fundraiser, as we can sell tickets, get volunteers to sign up, solicit donations, contact all ticket purchasers, and more very easily

Cons

Classy

  • Campaigns lack customization options which can be limiting- while you can add code to make some changes, there is a basic framework that you can't always override.
  • Slow to roll out some donor payment options like Venmo.
  • Not inexpensive price point and on an annual contract, so the software is definitely an investment.

Flipcause

  • The functionality is great, but setting up a fundraising campaign the first time can be time consuming and confusing. However, they have customer service staff who can help you or who will set up the campaign for you from start to finish.
  • You must click "save" each time you open a section of your campaign even if you haven't made any changes. This can be a bit annoying, but I suppose the feature is there to prevent changes from being lost or unwanted changes from being saved.

VERY easy to use, but lacks flexibility. But very easy to learn and master, even for someone with technical skills. They offer live chat which is a great help for on-demand support. At higher call volumes, you may wait 10 minutes, but I’ve never waited for more than that and the support if 90% of the time very helpful.

Classy's team was very helpful as we transitioned over, and helped us get everything set up quite easily. The few times we've had issues or questions, their online chat feature has been a quick way to get answers. On Giving Tuesday last year, the site went down, but Classy was quick with communication to its clients and had the problem resolved in about an hour. I know that if we have any problems or questions, the company and its team will be responsive and helpful. That makes a difference to me and our small team. We don't have time to troubleshoot or stay on hold for a long time waiting for support.

Flipcause has amazingly responsive customer support staff and "Success Teams." When you sign up, your Success Manager makes sure you have all the information and support needed to get up and running quickly and easily. Your Success Team will happily provide support on an on-going basis as needed, although we have not needed much support due to the easy-to-use interface

Alternatives Considered

Classy

It was a huge mistake to switch away from Classy to FrontStream Panorama. Classy is much easier to use and much simpler to design. While FrontStream can be a bit more customized in its design it requires extensive knowledge of HTML or CSS coding, which is not ideal for a small nonprofit with a small staff. We were with FrontStream for almost a year and in that time period, they were unable to correctly link our Salesforce to their platform. For almost an entire year their team could not help us correctly push in data. Their customer service is awful. Additionally, we used their other platform, Bidding for Good, during our Gala and it did not work. We ended up getting a full refund. Pulling reports from Frontstream was complicated and archaic. Classy makes it easy for us to see our data and get what we need.

We previously used Network for Good to process online donations and to sell event tickets, but Flipcause has proven much better at meeting our needs. I prefer the Flipcause interface and functionality, especially for event registrations. We have also used PayPal and PayPal Here to collect donations online and in person. While these are trusted and recognizable for our donors, they are only useful for collecting donations and do not have easily customizable donation receipts.

Return on Investment

Classy

  • This has been nothing but positive. We use the basic version so there is no fee associated with it other than a percentage of each transaction. So everything that comes in is added revenue where the only investment is staff time, but there is no monetary investment.
Daniella Dowiak | TrustRadius Reviewer

Flipcause

  • We are a nonprofit and donations are our lifeline. By streamlining the donation solicitation, processing, and acknowledgement process, and by automatically populating the donor CRM, Flipcause has saved so much time. And as we all know, time is money...
  • Flipcause encourages donors to pay the additional credit card processing fees, so more of the donation lands in our account.
