Givebutter Overview

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.

Givebutter is the best way to raise money

My overall experience has been so positive from day one. I feel that the customer service is above and beyond excellent and I couldn't imagine having a better team to help me raise money.

Pros

Givebutter is the best way to raise money, hands down. Not only is the platform easy-to-use but it has many useful tools for fundraisers and their teams. It is easy for anyone to migrate their fundraising to this platform. Givebutter does a fantastic job at getting the community involved and having donors feel like they are connected with other interested donors. The social media platforms for sharing are seamless. I recommend Givebutter to everyone who I meet that fundraises.

Cons

Givebutter is working on integrations with Salesforce and we can't wait for this to happen!

I would highly recommend Givebutter to anyone looking for an easy to use and engaging fundraising platform. It's especially great for college student organizations. My student organization has used Givebutter since the beginning and we have seen them continue making updates and improvements to make it even better. PFTK loves Givebutter!

Pros

Givebutter is an easy to use platform that is fun and engaging, especially for college students. What first drew us to Givebutter was that they keep fees super low, which isn't found on any other platforms. We also love the team fundraising option and your members can even personalize their page. The new event feature for selling tickets is a plus. They also have excellent customer service! The team really makes it personal and you can always get in touch in a timely manner.

Cons

I can't think of any. They are always making improvements. The Givebutter team is very open to feeback and will do everything they can to make your experience better.

The BEST Donation Platform

Used Daily for 2+ years

Pros

I love everything about Givebutter. They do not charge unreasonable rates on donations, features like ticket purchasing are very convenient, and the staff is AMAZING and very receptive to feedback.

Cons

Absolutely nothing upsets me about Givebutter. They really are concerned with costumer satisfaction and try to work alongside nonprofits, rather than against them.

The Best Site to Fundraise

Used Monthly for 1+ year
Reviewed on 2018/11/30
Review Source: Capterra

Givebutter is easily accessible, customer friendly, effective, transparent about their minimal fees, and the best site to fundraise, hands down, no questions asked. I used to fundraise on other platforms, but I will now always stick to Givebutter after having a continued remarkable​ experience with the company. I'm very thankful that I discovered this site, and it has saved me a great amount of time & energy with my fundraisers. I've also seen a spike in my crowdfunding success by​ using this company.

Pros

I most like the new ticketing feature for events because I plan to directly use Givebutter for a future project where there will be both crowdfunding for the tour and ticket sales for each event along our stops. Givebutter is a simple and brilliant solution for all of your fundraising needs, and this ticket feature is an example that shows how accessible, practical, and user-friendly the site is. I love how all these tools will be centered in one platform, and that helps me out tremendously.

Cons

There are very few things that I don't like about Givebutter. As the company evolves, there are better and better additions to the givebutter.com site. I definitely can't complain about the software because I've had such an easy and fun time using this fundraising platform.

A great platform for donor engagement

Used Weekly for 2+ years
Reviewed on 2018/11/30
Review Source: Capterra

Pros

I love that this software allows donors to interact with the fundraisers they're supporting. You can view donors' reasoning for donating to a cause and donors have the option of supporting a specific team member they might be connected to. Givebutter also has amazing customer service - if I ever reach out with a question, Max provides a quick and valuable response.

Cons

Honestly, I haven't identified something that I don't like about Givebutter's software. I'm happy that fundraisers' urls now reflect the name of the campaign rather than a random assortment of numbers and letters. That was a great change!
