Feeding San Diego pivoted during the pandemic to serve a growing population facing hunger. To fulfill its mission, the organization doubled down on online fundraising.
A March relief campaign, followed by two more fundraising campaigns and then their holiday peer-to-peer campaign—all on Classy—drove online giving up by 760% year over year in December alone.
The ability to quickly launch a variety of campaigns from March 2020 to January 2021 led to widespread success with a total of $5.4 million raised online to support hunger relief, as well as 721 new recurring donors — 79% of which elected to cover fees.
The organization’s director of marketing and communications shared, “Classy is priceless. It’s helping us feed people across San Diego, and there can be no price put on the value of a life.”
