Pros

We have had several leads over the past two years, but every interaction is with a positive, encouraging, knowledgable resource who offers the details to make our campaigns more successful.

CO

Cristol O.

For GivingTuesdayNow, we were able to efficiently and seamlessly build a campaign page and our Funraise rep was very helpful in providing feedback to ensure the page was optimized for success.

LB

Larissa B.

Our donors are happy, our accountant is happy, and I am happy with how little I need to do because everything runs automatically.

LS

Lindsey S.

Pros

The integrated donation forms (using Stripe and GoCardless) and sign-up forms are excellent. I like how Beacon is always trying to improve their product and listen to customers like us.

PT

Paul T.

We like that the platform was built specifically for non-profits and with smaller teams in mind. Beacon is customisable and is super easy to build and great for a team with limited resources.

SH

Sarina H.

Excellent care and customer service, as well as a very good piece of software.

LB

Lizzie B.

Cons

It is difficult to make corrections in data and the search bar does not work particularly well. Double-processed some recurring donations.

AR

Anonymous Reviewer

The biggest downside is that there is no way for donors to update their recurring donations themselves, but I've been told for months that this is in the works.

JH

Jake H.

When donations are dumped into salesforce, the campaign titles aren't exactly the same however I think this is a salesforce issue.

FB

Federica B.

Cons

With the product being so new there have been some teething problems and barriers where critical functionalities are not yet built, such as integration to gmail and calendar.

SH

Sarina H.

This particular problem will be short lived as Beacon are now working on an automated system for inputting addresses so this should be up and running very soon.

JE

Jane E.

Genuinely can't think of anything that I dislike about the platform.
