What Is Classy Studio?

Customize your story, brand, and campaigns with an easy and flexible campaign builder.

Classy Studio empowers hyperpersonalized, connected experiences across various interactions to activate your community at scale.

Our initial phase introduces dynamic donation sites, setting the stage for what’s to come. Studio will seamlessly integrate and elevate all existing capabilities in future releases, spanning crowdfunding, embedded experiences, peer-to-peer fundraising, events, ticketing, and beyond.

We’ll also roll out new features, like a digital giving cart, advanced integrations, curated image repositories, and other enhancements.

How It’s Different

  • Personalized yet fully branded appeals. Studio helps bring your story and brand to life without sacrificing personalization, respecting and serving supporters’ individuality.
  • Faster campaign response with clicks or code. Studio designer requires no technical or web team help to build, but if you want to customize with code, you can.
  • Trustworthy e-commerce combined with fundraising. Studio has a modern checkout experience that balances conversion, tracking, and security with best practices in fundraising.
  • Scaled retention via Classy’s donor dashboard. Studio helps supporters manage donations, upgrade their giving levels, pause recurring giving, download end-of-year giving statements, and more.

We wanted to create a visually appealing, branded, mobile-friendly donation page that could tell our story and be a home for our calls to action. Classy Studio allowed us to do all that AND was cost-effective, saving us thousands of dollars we would have spent outsourcing.

Why Classy Studio, and Why Now?

Nonprofits continue to experience constant change, including evolving community needs, increasing supporter expectations across fragmented channels, and growing technological leaps.

To respond to the needs and shifts, nonprofits must look for new ways to activate their community with unified, integrated, and personalized solutions.

Studio helps nonprofits combat the following five challenges:

  • People are hard to activate. With information overload and worldwide uncertainty, nonprofits must build creative, contextual campaigns that stand out.
  • Resources are limited. To create these experiences, fundraisers and marketers need easy-to-use tools that empower them to tailor these campaigns at scale.
  • Channels are fragmented. Supporters expect unique experiences and personalized storytelling that recognizes their involvement and matches their preferences and journeys.
  • Supporters are consumers. As shopping experiences evolve, nonprofits must keep up with changing expectations, especially across generations.
  • Donors want involvement. Supporters want to engage more deeply with your nonprofit, understand results, and connect with your mission meaningfully.
