How It Started

The First Campaign on Classy Was Our Own

Classy started as a fundraising solution developed from the perspective of supporters. After our founder’s mother survived two rounds of breast cancer, we sought to enable more people to make a difference for the causes they care about.

Frustrated by the challenges around making donations and the poor experience for supporters, we questioned why giving had to be so hard. We believed better technology was the answer, so we decided to build it. Beginning with our own fundraising campaign and refined across the campaigns of thousands of nonprofits, our powerful platform is elegantly designed to optimize giving experiences so that supporters are more engaged and nonprofit fundraisers have a greater impact. We are singularly dedicated to getting more funding directly to the causes that matter most, and with $4B raised on our platform in the first 10 years, we are just getting started.
