We utilize Classy for peer-to-peer fundraising and managing ticket sales for fundraising events. Classy is integral to our nonprofit as a large part of our fundraising is received through individual online donations. Classy addresses the need for an accessible, quick online donation portal, as well as for event management. It's easy to use for admin and donors, and I've never had issues that haven't been resolved in more than 24 hours by their support team.

We use Classy to collect and record funds raised during a peer-to-peer fundraiser. It helps to organize the fundraisers and their donors and keeps track of our current progress. It also allows us to promote our sponsors with hyperlinks. We can run reports to do data analysis in real-time as well as after the event is over. The users each have a page that they can use to collect donations without our need to control their fundraising.

We use Classy to create website that support various fundraising events across Canada. Each year, we run 10 or more peer-to-peer campaigns and another 20 or more fundraising events through Classy. Classy allows us to offer and manage web-based donations in a way that serves all stakeholders well. Easy integration with our organizational accounting management software serves our accounting department. Simple easy to use design options allow event managers to create a professional website with all the right information. Participants seem to find their user experience is straightforward and easy easy to navigate. With all of those three things being easier, we can focus on our priorities like recruiting participants and ensuring a quality event. We have seen increased participation since using Classy and having measurably fewer user problems means having more returning participants year after year. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Classy became a huge asset as we pivoted to fundraising in socially distanced context.

We use Classy as our payment processor and fundraising tool. Classy has allowed us to mobilize our community through peer-to-peer fundraising campaigns, our main donation page, individual links for board soliciting and tracking, and (eventually) event ticketing. The platform allows us to easily brand pages that look incredible and communicate different needs for specific campaigns. There is also an email platform built-in for specific campaign solicitation, but we only use the email receipt feature. It is highly customizable depending on individual campaign/fundraising needs.

We utilize Classy for our peer-to-peer general donation page, our annual giving campaign, as well as a specialized campaign for a specific partnership. We like the fact that we can customize donation pages towards specific campaigns because of the fact that - as a non-profit - we have to keep track of who is donating to us, which programs are receiving the donations, what the donation goals are, and we also want a user-friendly experience for our supporters.

We are currently using Classy across the entire organization for peer-to-peer fundraising, ticketed events, and recurring and one-time donations. A majority of the donations we receive annually are processed through our Classy campaigns. Before using Classy, we were on multiple platforms for different services. Now, the majority of our fundraising and reporting operations are on a single platform.

Our organization uses Classy to support with fundraising efforts, both ongoing annual campaigns and peer-to-peer fundraising. It is primarily used by our centralized Foundation team which manages fundraising. Classy acts as a super helpful "one stop shop" for our donors to easily make donations, and gives us flexibility to offer different donation options.

Our nonprofit has been using Classy as its fundraising platform for the past three years. Its ease of use is a benefit to both us as its user as well as our donors and supporters. We are appreciative of the recognition we have received from Classy this year. The honors validate our marketing campaigns.

We use Classy to track all donations to our nonprofit organization. We also use it for fundraising campaigns and have used it for ticket events in the past. We collect all donor data through Classy, which then integrates with our Salesforce CRM system. Classy is our centralized place to house and analyze donor data.

My non-profit, illuminAid, is using Classy to build a campaign for a Giving Tuesday event through a foundation in our geographic area (North Valley Community Foundation). We're strictly using it for fundraising purposes at this time, and Classy has been amazing! It allows us to amplify our public profile in a comprehensive, yet easily digestible way. It also allows us to offer different donation levels (such as $20, $50, $100, $500, and more), along with disclosing the impact to our organization with each donation option. This is very significant, as it provides data regarding measurable impact to prospective donors, and that has helped our fundraising ambitions immensely. We highly recommend Classy!

Classy provides a digital platform for the Maryland SPCA's fundraising campaigns. From large fundraising campaigns to everyday online giving, Classy provides a platform for supporters to donate to the organization and register for a number of events. We also use Classy as a POS sort of system for our Dog/Cat behavior classes (Fee associated) and our educational Storytime sessions (free). Classy helps process any fees, collects information, and provides the necessary registration lists.

C-CAP uses Classy for all fundraising efforts, events, campaigns, and peer-to-peer fundraising. Using Classy has streamlined the donation process for C-CAP, creating a seamless user experience. Classy has enabled C-CAP to create fundraising campaigns that highlight the great work we do, serving 20,000 high school students each year, and how donors can help support that work.

We are thrilled with the customer service as well as the fundraising resources provided through Classy. We couldn't be happier with our decision to go with Classy as our fundraising platform.

[...] Classy will set your subscription to auto-renew [in my experience], and then charge you for additional years of service without notifying you first! My organization used Classy in fall 2020 when we were making the switch to digital. In summer 2021, I was notified that our subscription was renewed [then in my experience] they took money out of our account without notifying us first. And [I believe] they increased the rate at which we were charged! [I feel] there was no notification prior to charging that we were set up to be auto renewed, only communication after the transaction was in progress. [In my opinion,] our customer service rep has been unable or unwilling to refund us. It feels like we were robbed for the cost of an additional year of service. Our organization has no plans to reuse the platform. It was ok, but nothing about the experience was outstanding[.] I wish I had either read more training prior to operating our fundraiser or [gotten] assistance from a rep because we had[, I feel,] major issues around supporting our fundraiser attendees. [This was] concerning the peer-to-peer campaign we launched. [In my experience,] 0/5 for their customer service and [I feel] shady business practices.

Classy helps us with peer-to-peer fundraising. We have young people who are interested sign up for their own page, create a profile, and share with their family and friends. We also use it for fundraising pages. We have certain fundraisers throughout the year, and Classy helps us create beautiful pages that handle all the backend work and integrate with some of the other software we use. It has been beneficial to us as a small non-profit.

We use Classy for a multitude of services. Online donations, event registrations, campaign management to name a few. Classy is very user friendly and has made managing events, donation collection and fundraising as a whole seamless. It communicates with our CRM seamlessly and is a wonderful product. Switching to Classy has saved our organization time and money, and in the non-profit sector those two things are priceless.

Classy has had a tremendous impact on our fundraising. We have easily designed campaigns and raised funds online in ways we never had the capability of doing before. Their customer service staff are helpful and responsive. They have readily offered useful advice and I comfortably bounce new ideas off of their experienced staff. We use Classy as a way to raise donations to support the school.

We transitioned to Classy as our primary electronic donation system. While our donor database has credit card processing and form creation abilities, we found it to be clunky, not very pretty, and difficult to customize. Now we link our "Donate Now" button on our website directly to Classy. We can completely customize the look of the page, and change it quickly to highlight different campaigns or funding priorities.
