Likelihood to Recommend

Classy

Classy is perfect for an organization who likes to create a lot of peer to peer campaigns and sell tickets to an event. I would not recommend it for use as the only event management software for your event but it's a good place to sell tickets and keep registration organized. It is also well suited for a team that lacks a designer because it is so simple to use

Little Green Light

I LOVE Little Green Light! I was part of my old org's transition to this database, then I consulted a nonprofit and supported their transition to Little Green Light. Then, I started with my current org 2 years ago and moved us over. It's by far the best donor database I've used.

Pros

Classy

  • The fundraising website is easy for a nonprofit to set up. You can customize things like colors and logos and the rest of it is taken care of for you.
  • Fundraisers (constituents) have a pretty easy time using Classy. The system is pretty straightforward with how you sign up to create a page and then it's pretty easy for users to edit their page and share to fundraise.
  • Classy's reporting options are pretty good and allow an organization to view information about fundraisers.

Little Green Light

  • Saves time and steps when receiving, categorizing, and acknowledging donations.
  • It is a powerful relational database with the flexibility to view information in many different ways.

Cons

Classy

  • It is pricy. Classy is more expensive than our donor management software but doesn't have the robust donor management tools to replace it.
  • Want the ability to allow donors to cover fees in all transactions (currently, Classy only gives the option in some set-ups).

Little Green Light

  • The mobile site is nonexistent - Not usually a major problem but can be when trying to access information away from a computer.
  • Support is only via email and to get a good response you need to have precise questions.

Usability

Classy 9.0

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 has incredible support. They are available by phone and have called me several times to check-in and help me with questions that I had. Their newsletters and articles have been beneficial. They also give resources and how-to guides that we have studied and used throughout the year. We've been grateful for their expertise.

They do not do phone support or chat support, only via email. Every time I have contacted them, they have responded and within 24 hours either solved the issue or explained that the software does not have the functionality.

Alternatives Considered

Classy

I have not used or evaluated any other products like Classy. This was the system our nonprofit was using when I was hired. We have found no reason to look to other platforms as Classy has been invaluable to us. We really value Classy, and we are not looking to switch any time soon

LGL is significantly less expensive with higher functionality, easier for more users to access, and has more information easily viewable without pulling a formal report.

Return on Investment

Classy

  • Over the past 2 years our organization, events, and programming has grown roughly 135%. Using Classy daily helped us to achieve that.
  • The platform has helped us identify ongoing or sporadic supporters that we can engage further with to turn into top supporters.

Little Green Light

  • Email communication has improved with our donors because they feel the email is addressed just to them.
  • We've been able to improve our donor management to include gift management and pledges.
