Fundraising tools for groups, teams, companies & nonprofits

About Givebutter

Givebutter is an all-in-one fundraising platform for student organizations, sports teams, companies, and nonprofits which offers the tools for collecting donations, running social peer-to-peer fundraising campaigns, selling tickets to fundraising events, and more. The cloud-based platform offers three integrated products; Collect, Fundraise, and Event, which can be used individually or together within the Givebutter platform.

Givebutter's fundraising platform is built on top of a self-service CRM dashboard, which is designed to help small groups to track and improve upon their fundraising efforts over time. Givebutter offers enterprise grade features and support to nonprofits, chapter-based orgs, and various groups with high-volume fundraising activity, and aims to help them provide donors, members, supporters, and advocates with an easy way to give. With the Collect module, users are able to accept donations, both one-off and recurring, via debit card, credit card, and Venmo. A custom widget can be created and embedded into the business website in order to accept donations, and custom donation amounts can be added to the widget to give donors a selection of options.

The Fundraise solution within Givebutter offers tools for creating custom fundraising pages, collaborating on fundraising within teams, setting up fundraising goals and tracking progress, and more. Givebutter also facilitates the selling of tickets for fundraising events using the Events module, and users can set custom ticket prices, define ticket types, and have the option to encourage additional donations when selling tickets. Other Givebutter platform functionalities include custom receipts, permissions management, payouts, third party integrations through Zapier, trackable links, leaderboards for team members, and more.

    We have been greatly satisfied with Givebutter. The zero fees and complete data transparency have put us in the drivers seat with our online fundraising initiatives. Using Givebutter has dramatically increased our online fundraising potential. We are eager to keep this product in our arsenal of tools in the work ahead of us.

    Pros

    Givebutter is easy to use, has lots of great features, and gives you control over your data. It also doesn't require a barge or boatload of cash to get started. Givebutter has a great team of specialists ready and willing to help you through your initial configuration as well as your ongoing work with the platform.

    Cons

    There are no drawbacks. We are eager to see what new features Givebutter continues to implement to make its communication with other platforms common in the space as seamless and easy as its current complement of offerings. We are also eager to see FORM applications grow so we can retired other solutions we have entirely. We are working hard to earn enough annual dollars to afford custom URLS and the giving hub. Two great features we are eager to implement as WE grow.

    Response from Givebutter

    We created our account in 2020 and it solved the immediate critical need of reaching supporters for our fundraising events amidst a pandemic. Because of Givebutter, we had an immediate and headache-free solution that allowed us to raise almost $40K so far. Also, we are an agency with many different programs, each of which manage their own unique fundraising campaigns and have their own unique needs. Givebutter offers three different types of fundraising campaigns, which allowed each of our Programs to run the type of campaign they needed.

    Pros

    It has a clean and simple user interface, which required very little training time as I onboarded new Users from our staff. Their support team is very responsive and knowledgeable, and help to guide us through all of our questions. Their organization has a customer-centric focus, and is designed to receive and adapt based of their user feedback. We also really liked its ability to integrate with our CRM.

    Cons

    Currently they do not offer an online auction function (silent or live), but this feature is in development and anticipated this year. We also did not like the Tips feature, which if activated removed their platform fees. Essentially, if you leave the Tip feature on then at checkout it provides the donor with the option to also tip Givebutter. We felt that this was confusing to our donors, who may not understand what Givebutter is, and that those funds would not be included as part of their gift to our organization. We would instead prefer to have a flat platform fee, but realize this probably means they would make less money. Also, the integration with our CRM was limited in terms of what data migrated where. We hope to see that change, so more information can be captured via Givebutter and automatically synced into our CRM.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review, Mary! We're so glad to read your entire team can use Givebutter with ease.

    It has been great. The customer service team is understanding and quick to respond. If there's something I ask for that isn't an option, they will add it to their list of requests and usually get to it in about 6 months or so depending on how popular of a request it is. I can't wait to see what they come out with next.

    Pros

    Love that it is easy to use for admins and donors. The Givebutter team is so open to feedback and makes frequent updates that help us fulfill our need better

    Cons

    They automatically add a 5% tip to every donation unless you opt to turn it off, in which case you would absorb the cost as an organization. It's definitely the more feasible choice to have it turned on, but beware if your donors don't notice it, they might come back to you very unhappy...

    Response from Givebutter

    Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review, Kim! And please keep your feedback coming. We love to turn requests into new features!

    Your thoughts on the transparency of tips are appreciated! As always, the support team is available to collect feedback you have about the donor experience.

    The group I am a part of doesn't have a lot of tech-savvy members. being able to use an intuitive platform like GiveButter makes it feasible and easy for us to fundraise at all types of events. QR codes, campaign URLs, and text-do-donate have all changed who we can reach and how.

    Pros

    GiveButter campaigns are so easy to set up; they let you duplicate a previous campaign and amend as necessary. It's intuitive and you can always view what your campaign looks like at any step of the way.

    Cons

    Some of the user interface seems busy and it's not always clear which areas of the page I should be giving attention to. But I do always figure it out in the end, and by looking at everything I find out more about GiveButter's functionality.
