"Great Fundraising System"

What do you like best?

Classy is easy to use and all employees understand it, which is of course a necessary function.

I love that we can build custom, attractive web pages using Classy. Then, ticket sales and donations and other tracking info go straight to salesforce.

What do you dislike?

A report I viewed the other day was a bit confusing. For example, two folks had cancelled their purchased tickets for a charity event. Were their tickets still counted in the total # of tickets sold? It was hard to say. I had to do the math by hand to figure it out. In the classy interface in salesforce, I wish there were definitions for different categories, that you could hover over.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We tracked donations, ticket sales and other necessary fundraising tools. Our salesforce admin can build custom webpages to sell tickets and promote events, which is an amazing capability, because all info from that pages goes to salesforce. Great to have a one-stop shop for all of our data.

"The Tool That Took Us to the Next Level"

What do you like best?

I love many things about Classy: it has allowed us to build out user friendly campaign pages on our website that look clean but are easy for us to build with little to no web development experience, the CRM tools allow us to see who has participated in various campaigns and to what degree, we can sell our event tickets through the platform, but my favorite thing about Classy is the client support. The Classy team is top notch and has been extremely instrumental in the growth of my organization.

What do you dislike?

There are a few features that need to be caught up to speed. The main thing I would love to see is PayPal being added as a payment option for when someone donates on our pages.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Classy has given us the ability to reach an entirely new audience and made it simple. The greatest values Classy has brought us is the ability to easily build these online fundraising pages and the staff who is incredibly helpful in guiding us to fully utilize all the tools and options within the software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Online fundraising. We are in the midst of a peer-to-peer fundraiser that has been really successful and helped us exponentially increase our fundraising capabilities because we now have tools to reach the masses online and expert Classy staff to help us fully utilize the tools and build a successful campaign.

"Great platform, though there's still room for improvement"

What do you like best?

Classy makes it easy to create campaign or event pages. Their platform integrates pretty well with Salesforce and the back end is pretty powerful as well, allowing for payment processing, reporting, communications, payment management, etc.

Additionally, their customer service is really great and their educational resources have been a great help to our organization.

Despite challenges listed below, Classy is going in the right direction with regularity. The campaign interface continually improves, the Salesforce integration has made great strides, and the new campaigns they’ve made available are great.

What do you dislike?

- Glitches in the campaign interface. It’s not like there are a ton, but there are a few that are bothersome and the design editor is often wonky. I recently spent 2 extra hours creating an image in powerpoint of a text box with an image in it because the design editor couldn’t wrap text around an image.

- The Salesforce integrations needs to be easier to use and more comprehensive. The Classy team does a great job already, but we find the need for custom fixes which take a lot of time and expertise that we don’t really have.

- Classy is expensive. Though it offers a lot more than other similar services, when the processing fees are added to the contract cost, it’s real money for a small NGO like us.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's an excellent online giving and registration platform, especially for a small non-profit.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Classy has allowed us to improve our online campaign & giving capacity. It has helped us get much better at this and address these needs quickly.

"Easy to use fundraising software!"

What do you like best?

Page set up for Classy is a breeze and basically enough for our one-off grassroots fundraising campaigns. Reports are easy to pull, and donor information easy to access. Classy support is also increadibly helpful and quick.

What do you dislike?

I wish you could add more than 5 fundraising project choices in the impact section. We often have very specific choices and have to lose one every once and awhile. Wish there were more options to create text boxes or break up information. If we were running a more sophisticated campaign I would like more options.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Software updates can take longer than promised.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've been able to collect money to a different pot rather than using our large organization donation page.

"Usable for the basics"

What do you like best?

The design is much cleaner and less dated-looking than lots of fundraising software out there, and the Classy blog has a high volume of excellent content for creative fundraising campaigns. It's much better than Bloomerang and some other fundraising software programs out there, that are either ugly or do not function well. The fact that it is very affordable is also nice compared to some other more clunky software like Bloomerang or ACS.

What do you dislike?

The setup is the most confusing part along with the functionality. The functionality has not yet caught up with the design but it's still better than a lot of other software out there right now.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is good for evaluating different fundraising software and is very chic and appealing design-wise.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The organization I work with was using more traditional and less effective fundraising methods, without maximizing/capitalizing on their online presence. Classy helps with the modern look and reaching broader audiences.

"Fresh and Moving Forward"

What do you like best?

Classy's biggest asset is ease of use for donors. The user experience (for the most part) is incredibly easy for donors and fundraisers to navigate. Classy has been rapidly improving their platform the past year based on client feedback. Classy Pay is projected to incorporate ACH payments soon.

What do you dislike?

Currently, I dislike the recurring donation notifications and how the access for donors to upgrade their donation amount or update their billing info themselves isn't as easy as it could be. I also don't like that they only see themselves as an online donation platform and wish they'd develop some better offline CC donation entry system. Currently, cc donations received via mail/phone have to be entered through the online donation form which is inefficient as it is built for donors', not data entry.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Classy is not a full-service donation management platform, it is currently, only an online donation management platform. They are expanding their functionality but don't offer efficient management/entry of offline CC donations. They take 2% transactional fee ON TOP of the payment processor fee (which is usually between 2-3%) in addition to the annual $6k fee which is a little steep and only recently 'worth it'. Definitely a solution geared towards larger organizations, but smaller orgs can definitely swing it. I encourage prospective clients to develop fundraising strategies that are feasible for your organization before signing up with Classy. If you're not going to leverage their integrations (out of necessity) or their P2P campaign models, then smaller-scale services would suffice. Classy has significantly improved the quality of their product over the past year. They are listening to their users and building out iterative solutions to reward customer feedback. The system is becoming easier to navigate and they're adding more customizable functionality. Take the time to learn about their releases and their SFDC integration updates/customization.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Classy's Salesforce integration has drastically increased our data integrity and efficiency. Their recent inclusion of Google Analytics allows us to asses traffic vs giving which helps us fine-tune our messaging.

"Good front end, needs improvements to syncs"

What do you like best?

The staff like it for its ease of use, that it looks nice, and the donor experience seems good. Donors can manage their own recurring gifts across multiple orgs, which is great. The support is pretty responsive.

What do you dislike?

The Salesforce sync is pretty buggy still; not all campaign types support all the features and there's some glaring holes in keeping the recurring donation status and data up to date in Salesforce. Much is hidden behind "partners and devs only" screens, so you can't control or troubleshoot your own issues. The new control panel will likely improve that a bit, I hope. Classy is also a very high price point for small nonprofits.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Fully test your customizations needed in salesforce

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Collecting recurring and one time gifts, having a user-friendly interface for donors. The first few campaigns are going well.

"Great for fundraising events"

What do you like best?

Their latest role out of the new UI is amazing for any org trying to crowd-fund-raise. Classy is a great for either peer to peer or event fundraising. Their customer service is top notch. When it came to finding a solution for us to crowd fund-raise, Classy's support team really sealed the deal for us.

What do you dislike?

Some of the integration of it with out database or accounting software is a little of a challenge but not enough for it use to look elsewhere. The old UI was a bit of a challenge when it came to customization and wasn't the most visually appealing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely give it the demo a try. If you are interested in crowd fund-raising, its worth looking into. The platform can even function your entire website. Their user experience is great as well. We have so many people that love creating their pages.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

They are helping us crowd fund-raise for our non-profit organization that focuses on on international relief. When you have a great UI that helps with representing your org at a very high level.

"Classy creates a beautiful platform to optimize fundraising "

What do you like best?

I love the simplicity of Classy. It is so easy to create donation pages, run reports, create events, etc. And, above that would be the seamless integration with Salesforce!

What do you dislike?

I don't like that some of the features take so long to roll out. I have been waiting about 5 months now for ACH payments to be a feature and it still is not available.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving the problem of past terrible donation pages. The benefits of the Salesforce integration are unexplainable.

"Pretty Expensive but worth it -- maybe"

What do you like best?

I like that it is user friendly for both the donor and the organization. It is especially helpful during times of disaster when large swathes of the public want to be one-time donors but not committed to the cause long term. It is also much more convenient than the system for donations set up on my organization's website, where the interface is not very intuitive and there are too many drop down menus to go through. Classy is the easier option to link to.

What do you dislike?

The monthly fee is exorbitant. I also don't find the emails I receive to be too interesting or relevant to my needs. I also wish I could customize each page more. Changing the colors and adding a handful of pictures isn't enough, in my opinion.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Keep creating new projects for people to donate to so that interest in your page stays up. Otherwise the monthly fee won't be worth it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are trying to attract new donors while keeping the old ones. We are also trying to spread the message of our organization, which is to care for the underprivileged, especially children. Classy was a big help in realizing this goal during Typhoon Haiyan. We raised an unbelievable amount of money for the survivors in the hardest hit areas, in a very short amount of time -- simply because Classy was easy to use, reputable, and because it offered a tax deduction to US donors. With this money we helped people get life-saving medical care, built houses, started schools, and continued other humanitarian programs that are still growing today.

"Classy for Non-profits"

What do you like best?

Classy works great for non-profits. It's a good platform for fundraising and campaigns, and the best part is that all the data collected is integrated with Salesforce which is what our organization uses.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes there are bugs and crashes, and the data does NOT sync properly. Not too much room for customization of the site. You have to use their templates.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're a non-profit, I would recommend! Especially if you use Salesforce for CRM. Very efficient!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it for fundraising, campaigns, collecting RVSPs for events, and promoting our brand. This makes it easy for us to self-run our campaigns and the following morning, we receive a Classy report of and and all transactions from the previous day.

"Classy is a great addition to our fundraising plan!"

What do you like best?

Classy is very intuitive, both on the donor-facing and back-end user side. Classy also offers a high level of customization of event, peer-to-peer fundraising, and general donation pages. Plus the tech support is top notch!

What do you dislike?

The only thing I dislike about Classy is that, because we use Raiser's Edge, we do a little more on the back-end to process donations than we did before when we used Blackbaud's NetCommunity. But it is worth it in the level of ease that our donor's experience when using our pages now.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Classy is extremely easy to use for peer-to-peer fundraising. One of our largest fundraisers each year is Over the Edge - a unique event where Girl Scout supporters raise money for the opportunity to rappel down one of our city's tallest skyscrapers. Our "Edgers" find Classy very easy to use when soliciting their friends & family to contribute to the personal fundraising pages - resulting in more donations for us!

"Classy is a great all-encompassing product for nonprofits"

What do you like best?

Classy is an all in one system that is customizable. It covers donations, recurring donations, fundraisers, and events. They have great customer service and help with strategy. They are also open to feedback and continue to improve their product based on their client's needs. It also syncs to salesforce and mailchimp!

What do you dislike?

There are a couple of reporting features that could be more user friendly, like the recurring donations report tab, and the design could have a few more easy customizable features. The classy API works great, but make sure you have a developer on hand to help implement it onto your website. I also wish the mailchimp integration let you choose a specific list per campaign to feed donors into (right now you just choose one list to sync to for everything).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do it! Especially if you have a designer/developer who can ensure you are utilizing classy to its fullest capability.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's an all-in-one solution! We were using paypal's interface for receiving donations through our website before and it wasn't branded or user friendly. Now donors receive a More Than Me experience from start to finish. Syncing to salesforce and mailchimp also saves us a lot of time!

"Ease of use and great customer support"

What do you like best?

I like how easy Classy is to set up. It requires very little work and almost no knowledge of web design.

What do you dislike?

Since everything is so user friendly, Classy is somewhat limited in terms of customization. There are ways to customize some things, but not others.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have substantially grown our monthly donor program and have been able to A/B test different pages for different campaigns, giving us a deeper insight into our online donors' minds!

"best fundraising site out there"

What do you like best?

I have a Classy user for several years now (via the NPO that I work for). Everything is super simple, user friendly, and backed up by tons of support documents. If the support docs don't help, their staff is friendly and always eager to help.

What do you dislike?

Our organization does a lot of events, and I feel that classy doesn't accommodate ticket & sponsorship sales as well as some of the other platforms.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a shot! If you have any questions or hesitations, reach out to support. In my experience, they are always willing to help out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our biggest "problem" is trying to reach new donors, and keep our current donors engaged. Classy offers tons of tools and resources to help with that.

"Excellent Team Raising Software"

What do you like best?

It's very easy for a donor/fundraiser to create their own page and start raising money for our organization. It allows clear visibility towards the donor's goal and good collaboration between the fundraiser, their donors, and the organization.

What do you dislike?

The support channels have at times been rather slow to respond. I needed assistance for a critical fundraiser (an integration wasn't working) and didn't hear back from support until after the fundraiser (and after I had mentioned it to my account exec).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Classy helps us have easy team fundraising and partner with fundraisers without a ton of work on our side - it really does allow us to let fundraisers work without us needing to micro-manage their campaign.

"Miracle Foundation loves Classy"

What do you like best?

Classy makes it so easy for our supporters to create their own fundraising pages, and the platform integrates well with our Salesforce instance. Plus, the customer support we receive is quick and awesome!

What do you dislike?

With Classy PRO, we get the added feature of domain masking - I'd love for our donation page URLs to display as our masked domain instead of changing to the actual Classy URL.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely worth a demo call to determine if the platform is a good fit for your organization's fundraising goals.

What do you like best?

The all in one management system is what attracted us at first-we could use it for peer-to-peer, crowdfunding, AND events!

What do you dislike?

The cost just wasn't feasible for our company at this time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great for mid to large scale nonprofits, but for smaller nonprofits it's hard to justify. More than likely the cost would have been higher than our donations.

Classy is a great tool for our nonprofit to fundraise with. It offers us flexibility to do single donations as well as peer-to-peer fundraising, all from the same place.

It's a little expensive... There are other/cheaper options out there that are cheaper, but the features of Classy convinced us to go for it!

"Stay Classy Review"

What do you like best?

Stay Classy is a great format for online fundraising opportunities. We have used this service to allow individuals to create their own fundraiser with limited involvement from our team.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I dislike is that we cannot use this platform for all of our fundraising needs.

"Classy worked well for us!"

What do you like best?

I liked the simplicity of signing up for their system. I liked the platform- the look was modern and easy to use. I like the friendly customer service.

One of my favorite things about Classy is the backend design. It was extremely easy to look up donors, refund them, add in offline donations and run reports.

What do you dislike?

The client services team at Classy didn't seem to have as many unique ideas to help boost fundraising as some of their competitors. I think we would have liked it if they could bring some new strategies to the table. Also, they are a bit on the expensive side monthly. These are small concerns though when looking at everything in the big picture.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for it! They're great!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are looking for an easy way for donors to contribute to our nonprofit and an opportunity for donors to also want to continue to contribute. Classy has made it easy for donors to contribute with many options and a nice clean platform. We've raised more money through our general giving page than in years past.

What do you like best?

Classy is a very intuitive system. It is easy to navigate and use.

What do you dislike?

It's expensive. Arguably worth it, but it's hard to convince the powers that be to invest when there are cheaper options out there.

Keep moving forward in considerations. It's a new way to raise funds. Especially if you're interested in peer-to-peer, you can't do better than Classy.

"Somewhat customizable but necessary platform"

What do you like best?

Having the ability to create personal fundraising pages is a must for non-profits these days. Classy is easy to use for both the organization and the supporters. Because it is a very common platform, users do not question its legitimacy often.

What do you dislike?

It's taken a while for us to customize it to the extent we needed, but at least we were able to do it. Also, we must do a fair bit of manual keying to upload the data into our database.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I haven't tried every platform out there, but I have not heard of one that is doing a better job than Classy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's a great way to offer donors a way that they can help even more - by fundraising from their networks. We haven't raised a whole lot of money from it, but I think it does make existing donors feel more committed.

"Beware of Misleading Advertising"

What do you like best?

Great set of features, but only on the premium versions, which are quite pricey.

What do you dislike?

The web site plays up the functionality but the link to the pricing is tiny and in the footer. Premium versions range from around $500-$1500 per month, which is steep for many non-profits. I tried out the free version and many of the custom design features did not even work on chrome. The free version is useless, and the interface strongly pressures you into using WePay as your processor. Abominable.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't pay a penny until you do a demo. A lot of the WYSIWYG features did not work for me on either Safari or Chrome

"Classy increased support for our Free Them 5k"

What do you like best?

The fact that registrants for our Free Them 5k to Stop Human Trafficking have a personal fundraising page created for them automatically when they register for the event. Classy handles our registration and fundraising process for this annual 5k event.

What do you dislike?

The fact we can't customize the look and feel of our fundraising pages, and that our main event page is not yet mobile-friendly.
