Overall Satisfaction with 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.
  • 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.)
  • Online Giving.
  • Event registration.
  • Peer to peer fundraising.
  • Classy is less expensive than old online giving platform (Luminate).
  • Requires a third party adapter to talk to RE.
  • Many things are add ons so we have not purchased them.

Classy is great for simple events, where you don't have a lot of details to share and are trying to drive peer-to-peer giving and/or registrations. Classy is also great for online giving. Nice and streamlined donor-facing pages. Campaigns can be easily duplicated for micro-campaigns (like segmented direct mail campaigns) that you want to look identical.
