Reviews of Classy
The best fundraising platform for our needs
Comments: We have been using Classy for many years now, and have raised tens of thousands of dollars from our growing community of donors. Classy is incredibly easy to use, and has amazing support, even though we're on a completely different time zone to the support team! The peer to peer campaigns, which we use at least once a year, are super straightforward and look great even if you don't know what you're doing or could never dream of creating something from scratch. We also shopped around and truly found that Classy offers the most competitive rates for what we need. Thanks!
Easy to use, and really prompt customer service.
Nothing! We're really happy with our use of Classy. I'm sure there's more we could do to make the most of all the platform has to offer but right now we're meeting all our needs.
Streamlined Fundraising Tool
Comments: Their customer service is amazing!
It's very easy to use, implement, and train on. Donors are very happy with the ease of transactions
I wish they had a more robust donor database so it could be an all in one solution for us.
Classy makes fundraising easy!
While I can spend all day talking about how wonderful the software is in its ease of use, aesthetic, and features, the most amazing part of Classy is the customer support. Every time I have a question, I am able to get an answer from the chat in minutes, and the support specialist is able to get me an answer or solution almost immediately.
I truly can't think of anything I dislike, but I will say that if there is ever something you can think of that will improve the platform, you can let a Classy representative know and they may be able to find a comparable solution for you.
They overpromise, and wildly underdeliver.
Comments: All, I'll say... there's a reason they wont let you trial the platform before signing up.
Peer to peer platform is slick and easy to set up.
They promised a whole lot during the sales process. And since you can't trial the platform, you need to take the lunge and pay the $4k subscription fee. We've been struggling for 7 days to install donation form on our website. The sales, product and support teams are very disconnected. Their integration with Mailchimp is very weak; as they only send name, surname and email data to MC. But, for some bizarre reason, no data about which campaign was donated to, or whether it was a standard, recurring or peer to peer donation. How do they expect you to build donor relationships without that data? We figured out that they integrate with Salesforce, and via Salesforce we now send data to MC. But, that cost us a week of engineering fees. All this for a $4k per year platform. For $4k per year, you have certain expectations. But, I waited 54mins on the customer support
Classy - an excellent solution for robust fundraising programs.
Classy is very easy to use, from the moment it is set up. Implementation was relatively straightforward, and had a dedicated Classy representative to walk us through the process. Upon set up, we were able to immediately reap the benefits of the platform, and the Support - from documentation, to regular training webinars, to the assigned Client Success Manager has been very useful.
There are certain design features/elements that I wish had more customization, especially within the crowdfunding and peer-to-peer campaigns and email acknowledgement templates.
