Our organization has been very happy with FlipCause.

2018-05-14

Pros

The clone campaign feature is a huge time saver for new campaigns without having to start from scratch.

When loading pictures for the campaigns, it would be helpful to be able to resize the pictures within the FlipCause platform.

Response from Flipcause


Hi Melanie,

Thank you so much for your review! We're so glad you're able to save time with the campaign cloner. I hear you about image resizing and will forward your feedback to our Product team. For now, we recommend using the listed image dimensions in the interface before uploading images. You can also use a free image creator like canva.com, this can be a lot easier to use than Illustrator!

Hands down this is the best tool for small nonprofits .... a must have!

2018-05-08

Pros

Integrates in one place your website, various campaigns (events, donations, volunteers, etc.), donor management, and payment processing.

Cons

Still in development and so sometimes the campaign tools don't have the degree of flexibility to do very specific tasks, eg.: In-kind donations without payment processing (I did a work-around in Volunteer); Pay-at-the-door option for event registration.

Thank you for your feedback! We are happy to hear that our support team has been able to help you get the most out of our tools. We are always looking to make improvements and your feedback is valuable in guiding those changes. We are currently working on some updates with the goal of making our campaign tools more flexible, we are excited to share those updates soon. As for Pay-at-the-door option for event registration, great news, we have launched our Flipcause LIVE Mobile App and card reader that would be able to accept payments during an event! You can call us at 800-523-1950 or email your Success Manager and they can get you set up with a card reader for your next event.

Flipcause has enabled easier alignment of our fundraising and volunteer service needs.

2018-05-09

Flipcause enables our Montessori public charter school to align our fundraising needs with the volunteerism required of our families on one platform.

Pros

I find the personalization and integration features of Flipcause the most beneficial for our school's needs.

Cons

Some of the fields within each campaign are redundant and could be better served on a global template.

Theresa Chmiel

Flipcause is an AWESOME platform and so incredibly easy to use. Pledge fulfillment is a breeze!

2018-05-08

Pros

My accountant LOVES the reports I can generate for each campaign. I can easily create mailing lists, track donor gifts, and use the data to increase donor pledges.

Cons

Ummmm... they just updated some functionality so this may be out of date (I haven't gone in to see the new dashboard) but it would be super duper to save graphic elements in the platform so you can build a gallery of photos and design elements instead of always having to upload them.

Hi Thomas,
Thank you so much for your review. We love hearing that Flipcause has been able to save you time and has allowed you to move your work from multiple spreadsheets to a centralized place! That's what we aim to do.

As for adding mass email and membership management, both are on our Roadmap for future builds. We'll be sure to keep you updated on the progress.

Don't hesitate to let us know if there's anything else we can do to help!

Flipcause has been invaluable in organizing and developing our new non profit campaigns and goals.

2017-11-19

Highly beneficial to our very small non-profit in developing fundraising campaigns and in planning and hosting events-it is a cost effective low overhead administrative tool that we have found to be invaluable.

Pros

Flipcause provides a useful financial reporting structure for small non-profits and a creative springboard for fundraising ideas.

Cons

Would like to see a donate by text feature added- believe that may be available soon and the addition of this feature would make fundraising easier.

Flipcause has become invaluable to my organization. Training was great and support is fast.

2018-05-08

Pros

We use the software for ticket sales, registrations, donations, and peer to peer campaigns. It helps us keep track of event attendees and donors.

Cons

There doens't seem to be a way to view a report before completing it to make sure I am capturing all the information I need.

Flipcause has been easy to learn. We have be able to start campaigns and run them right away.

2017-06-06

It is a good solution for a small non-profit like us.

Pros

I like the ability to make many campaigns at once.

Cons

Custom questions have to relate to every category in a campaign, rather than just certain categories.

Excellent customer support with a very quick response time. Very easy to use!!!

2018-05-08

Pros

We are able to use Flipcause for all of our financial backend needs. Campaigns can be tailored to use peer to peer fundraising, event ticket sales, merchandise sales and volunteer management.

Cons

I have found it hard to find tutorials on my own but their customer service staff is so quick to respond that it really is a non-issue.

Our humane society has been extremely impressed with the ease and functionality of using Flipcause.

2018-06-15

We can now now update and customize our website whenever and however we like instead of calling a third party.

Pros

Prior to using Flipcause we had third party entities which hosted our website (3+ outside parties) plus more third parties that ran just the donation part of our website (again 3+ other parties).

Cons

It may not be the ideal software for a very large non-profit, but for small-medium ones I think it is a great fit.

A huge breath of fresh air!

2018-05-08

Time saving, no need to hire extra employees, support!

Pros

I have enjoyed how easy it is for the "normal" person to dig into their website and i love how much easier data collection has become.

Cons

There is nothing that I don't like about the software as of yet. The campaigns have been easily managed and created quickly by Flipcause.

Flipcause makes running a small nonprofit so easy

2019-07-30

By switching to Flipcause we eliminated using Eventbrite (for registration), PayPal (for payment processing), WordPress (for website design), Donorsnap (for donor record management ... very powerful program but overkill for our small organization).

Pros

The team is always willing to help me customize a campaign for an odd-ball task like exhibit space reservation, and is always trying to update and improve the functionality.

Cons

Some people have thought our website to be less professional looking than it could. Would love to get it to that level of appearance, but without knowing programming codes ... is this even possible?

Hi Karen,
Thank you so much for your feedback! We're so happy to hear Flipcause has allowed you to consolidate all of your needs (event registration, payment processing, website editing, and donor management) all in one place, that's our goal! Mass emailing is definitely on our Roadmap and we can't wait to release it in the future. I'll be sure to let you know when we're close to a release date.

As for your website, I will have our web team reach out to you directly to see how we can help you get your website to the level you're looking for! Don't hesitate to reach out if there's anything else we can do to support you!

2018-05-08

Pros

Very happy with software performance and customer support!

2018-05-08

So many ways for supporters to donate, participate, and show their support.

Pros

Professional and detailed receipts and confirmations. My next favorite thing is the ready-made options that you just click and fill in the blanks to implement

Cons

Maybe making the integrated campaign look more like the hosted campaign.

A wonderful tool for our organization, plus a fantastic success team!

2019-07-03

Pros

Flipcause is easy to use to create eye-catching, engaging campaigns. We have used Flipcause campaigns to create fundraising platforms and register participants for events.

Cons

My only suggestion for improvement is related to the reports for various campaigns. If you want to figure out the amount of transaction fees, this requires you to do an extra step to subtract the amount received from the total of the transaction.

Hi Ida,

Thank you for your feedback! It's true, at the moment Flipcause does not include robust mass email communications features and is designed to work in tandem with an email marketing tool like Constant Contact or MailChimp. We are working on integrating communications more into our platform down the road!

We were looking for a site that would allow us to maximize our fundraising cost effectively.

2018-05-08

Pros

Any time we have a question, we get it answered by their staff and they are incredibly responsive to our needs.

Cons

They need to get their text to give campaigns up and running so that we can continue to fundraise in a manner that appeals to all supporters.

Best Investment Ever!

2019-07-16

All of our registrations and donations are in one place. Reports show a complete picture for each participant.

Pros

The BEST thing is having my own team who work closely with me to create a campaign that is professional, clear, beautiful and WORKS easily for participants.

Cons

The offset of this "con" is the Team does the work for me and is so helpful and willing to give me step by step instructions to pull a report, write a thank you, etc.

The exact missing piece to the puzzle that I needed

2018-05-08

Pros

It is user-friendly, the customer service is timely, the functionality is amazing, and it is serving a huge void of something that was missing for taking the foundation to the next level.

Cons

Everything about the software is something that is pivotal in terms of donor management, volunteer management, ease of transactions and donations.
