In the past, we used Click and Pledge which was super customizable (if you knew how to code) and pretty simple. It was lacking in the peer-to-peer/crowdfunding areas and was TERRIBLE on the support side, which we realized we needed fairly often. Classy was more expensive but alleviated a lot of problems for us.

We feel that Classy is superior to other options, but I also must admit that we're a small non-profit, so we haven't used a lot of other services at this time. Nevertheless, we highly recommend Classy for a wide range of purposes in the non-profit realm. It surely stacks well against other services.

CrowdRise has been better overall for us. They are both very similar, but CrowdRise was cheaper for our needs and integrated with more of the other software that we used. You can't go wrong with either, but we prefer CrowdRise over Classy. However, Classy has more expertise and resources when it comes to articles and help.

Classy is light-years ahead of DonorPerfect when it comes to creating customized pages for fundraising. DP's system was archaic and always looked like a 1990's MySpace page. Classy looks relevant and conveys more trust for our donors.

Classy is easier to use because it's simple and streamlined. Everything is in one place and easy to access (and well-designed!). You can easily export all donor information from each campaign whenever you choose, and the system automatically sends thank you emails so you don't have to.

Classy is much better than Eventbrite but is far behind Cvent in terms of an event platform. Classy is mainly for peer to peer, but they rolled out an event function that works okay but is missing some key features, like the ability to send an invitation out through the platform or attribute custom questions to more than all or one ticket type.

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.

I used Giving Fuel for a number of years, and while their prices are more competitive, they also don't provide the level of engagement and customer service coupled with great design and ease of use. Giving Fuel worked fine, but Classy has captured my attention and got my business.

NOTE: The platform we used prior to Classy was actually FrontStream-Firstgiving (not Panorama), but that was not listed. Classy is a much more dynamic platform, allowing us to take advantage of all that online registration and fundraising has to offer.

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.

Classy has a lot more customization than iATS and is more geared for the nonprofit use case. It should be mentioned that while iATS is a payment processor that has syncing and online form capabilities (through iATS Brickwork and Aura), Classy does still require you to select an outside payment processor that is Classy compatible.
