“We selected Classy’s platform because we all felt like this is a user-friendly platform and the organization itself aligns very well with our values.”
“We made the switch to Classy about three years ago when we were ramping up our 5K series, now Step Beyond Celiac, and building up our grassroots fundraising efforts. Classy’s peer-to-peer fundraising functionality, campaign design capability and Salesforce integration have truly helped us meet our fundraising goals.”

“Before Classy, our digital fundraising efforts were spread over several platforms and had varying designs. Now, our campaigns are centrally located/organized, cohesively branded, and easy for our donors to participate in.”

When we canceled, it was four days before our in-person event was supposed to happen. The virtual event was kicked off the very next day. Being able to take the in-person event online and set up a Classy campaign quickly was key. We had all the branding in place, translated it to a campaign page, and replicated the same look and feel of the real event.”
