We’re excited to announce that Classy and CDS Global are officially partnering in an effort to help nonprofits connect their donors’ online and offline giving activity. The partnership will bring together Classy’s world-class online fundraising software with CDS Global’s 45 years of experience providing nonprofits with business solutions, like direct mail.

“In today’s fragmented fundraising landscape, modern nonprofits need to diversify their revenue streams now more than ever, and that includes the ability to marry their online efforts with what’s happening offline. By tying together a donor’s online and offline activities in partnership with CDS Global, we hope to empower nonprofits with a deeper understanding of their supporters that allows them to deliver more relevant and impactful experiences.”

Scot Chisholm
CEO and Co-Founder of Classy

Together, both companies will leverage each other’s complementary solutions, technologies, and industry expertise. For CDS Global, this means they’ll be able to support Classy clients with:

  • Donation processing with automated data capture
  • Printing and mailing of donor acknowledgement letters
  • Multichannel customer service support

CDS Global clients will have access to the Classy Fundraising Suite, which enables them to use the robust set of fundraising products like:

  • Peer-to-peer fundraising
  • Crowdfunding
  • General website donations
  • Events
  • International fundraising capabilities

All supporter and donation information that comes from these products will flow through Classy’s backend Classy Manager, a centralized hub for all-things campaign management.

“CDS Global has a long history of providing the operational solutions and support that nonprofits need to advance their missions and focus on the important work that they do. Our partnership with Classy enhances these services and provides a streamlined set of solutions for nonprofits to track online and offline donor activity.”

Malcolm Netburn
Chairman and CEO of CDS Global

This partnership is only the beginning as Classy and CDS Global continue to explore other opportunities to develop new integrated solutions powered by their combined data sets and better serve nonprofit organizations.
