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

OneCause

I think the BidPal part we were using was badly outdated, so my hope is that the rest of the OneCause platform is more updated. If so then it's a great fundraising platform with most if not all of the functionality you need. OneCause is great for events and campaigns, and I urge nonprofits to make sure they're using Stripe for processing behind OneCause with the NPO discount.

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.

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).

OneCause

  • Add decimal points for gifts...couldn't believe it couldn't handle that and it matters for monetary reconciliations
  • If a payment was a credit card, we were unable to change the transaction type (ex. from ticket to donation) without refunding and recharging, which was uncomfortable for our donors.

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 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.

The on-site support was fantastic on the night of our event. They knew what they were doing and took direction professionally. Pre-event, we felt that the account manager was not listening to our concerns and was more of a sales staffer than a support staffer. Having us connected directly to support would bump this to a 9.

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
