  • Peer to peer fundraising / crowdfunding campaigns = new donors.
  • Highly customizable and brand-able.
  • Ease of use on the backend (tracking/reports/donor info).
  • Classy is easy to use but could offer more flexibility by giving a coding option for more advanced users.
  • Some templates (like internal receipts) are unable to brand/change.
  • Would love a specific campaign type for recurring donors.

  • The support team is great and has excellent advice for using Classy in new ways.
  • The campaign pages are easy to set up, allowing extensive customization.
  • Sometimes their technical tickets take a while to resolve.
  • The customization of each campaign design is limited -- they all use a similar template.

  • Customer service.
  • User-friendly platform.
  • Multiple Payment Processors.
  • Easy to access tutorials.
  • Adding Venmo and Cash App as payment processors.
  • Decreasing the amount of service fees taken from donations.
  • Possibly adding a field for donators to state they are a "first-time" giver or "recurring" giver - for CRM purposes.

  • Robust native integrations with other applications like Salesforce
  • Helpful support team to troubleshoot issues and support with building out campaigns/business
  • Building out a basic campaign is very straightforward; platform is easy to learn
  • Campaigns lack customization options which can be limiting- while you can add code to make some changes, there is a basic framework that you can't always override.
  • Slow to roll out some donor payment options like Venmo.
  • Not inexpensive price point and on an annual contract, so the software is definitely an investment.

  • Customer service - especially with Salesforce integration
  • Easy to set up campaigns
  • Facebook integration for peer-to-peer fundraising
  • More customization of campaign elements
  • Mobile functionality is lacking - would like to see check scanning and credit card processing on-site
  • Billing info - we wish there was a way to click a button and have attendee/registrant info copy to billing info (to reduce friction for the donor)

  • You can duplicate campaigns so you don't need to start from scratch.
  • Easy reporting on a number of different items.
  • Single page easy for user donation pages.
  • Design ability of campaigns is limited. Cannot put videos on certain campaign pages.
  • Things included in other platforms are Classy add ons (Facebook integration, Text-to-give, etc.)

  • The Classy platform is easy to use, both for the staff and our volunteer fundraisers
  • It's easy to build a great looking fundraising page
  • Classy support (particularly chat and phone) are attentive and responsive. Every one there is smart and nice!
  • There is a tradeoff between ease of use and rich functionality. While there are usually work arounds, there are occasionally things we would like to do that are not included in the platform.

  • Easy customization.
  • Pages can be designed to match your website and brand.
  • Quick editing is possible.
  • Great customer service.
  • 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).
