Likelihood to Recommend

Classy

Classy is a great product overall. I gave it only a rating of 7/10 because its utility will vary depending on what your needs are and what kind of org you are. Also, depends on the CRM it integrates to if it does integrate. They have many different integrations. We have the Salesforce integration for Classy which has several issues. I would say their Salesforce integration is not fully matured yet.
If you do not have any integrations to worry about I would give Classy 10/10.

Neon Fundraise (formerly Rallybound)

Neon Fundraise (formerly Rallybound) is well suited to third-party fundraising. We use it for our walk fundraiser, and we enjoy the level of interactivity and customization it offers our constituents. It also makes donation entry and reporting fairly easy, so it would be well suited for operations with vast numbers of donations in cash, check, and credit. It might be less suited to events with a handful of large donations from corporate benefactors.

Pros

Classy

Neon Fundraise (formerly Rallybound)

  • Rallybound is able to have websites that are user-friendly to our participants. Our participants are able to navigate through their profiles with ease. With our participants able to easily navigate their pages, the staff is able to spend less time asking questions and instead coach their fundraising efforts.
  • Rallybound is able to customize your website to your needs, for a fee of course. Rallybound is also able to customize certain reports for you if that specific report has not already been created. This is essential for my team when pulling revenue numbers or projecting future revenue/budgets.
  • Rallybound's customer service is quick to respond and helps navigate issues. This is crucial when you are on-site at an event trying to solve a problem.
  • Rallybound allows you to check-in individuals based off of the registration on their website. Their check-in is so simple and easy to use.

Cons

Classy

  • The simplicity of Classy's campaign design editor also means it isn't as customizable as I'd like it to be. There are times when I wish I could change something that is embedded in the template.
  • Like all online platforms, there are occasional glitches that occur with Classy. For example, there have been times when our Salesforce connector pushes data in incorrectly or is missing. This is usually addressed fairly quickly.
  • One feature that is especially difficult for our organization to manage is that we always provide our donors the ability to mail in their credit card information for us to process. This only becomes an issue when we do not have an email address for the donor because Classy and Salesforce use a donors email address to distinguish users. Therefore, when we use a generic email from our organization for that donor sometimes records get crossed or edited automatically.

  • Communication around new features and updates could be better.
  • Ticketed event pages could have more custom options.

Usability

Classy

Classy 9.0
Based on 1 answer
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.

Alternatives Considered

Classy

We chose to go with Classy because we needed something simple to set up for peer to peer fundraising without an upfront investment fee. We didn't need customization or bells and whistles and we were able to get the fundraising site set up and running in about a week. Ultimately the hope is that we grow such that we can look at investing in a larger platform that allows for more customization and is more of a CRM database, but for now, Classy was perfect to get us off the ground.

I was not a part of the evaluation process when Rallybound was selected. Classy was one of our top three choices, however, when we decided to eventually go with Rallybound. I do know that my team continues to look for the best platform to use, and Classy is always discussed.
