Funraise Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about Funraise's features:

Richard S.

review

2021-03-09

It's great - being a small team and at times a 1 man team when it comes to the development side Funraise automates many tasks as well as helps keep us very organized.

Pros

It's very easy to use, and has all features under one roof: event, peer to peer, recurring donors, donation button, social media, texting, and I'm sure I'm even missing other features.

Cons

There are some limitations to bulk action items that could make management easier as well as some manual specific limitations to the text feature.

Funraise Customer Review

2021-03-02

Pros

Relatively easy to use; customer support is timely and helpful

Cons

Sometimes only need a new feature (event management) for a once a year thing but the cost package requires it to be an annual subscription or update that we don't need

A Wonderful Fundraising Software

2021-03-05

Overall, our experience with Funraise has been excellent. We've grown a lot over the past 3+ years and so has Funraise. It has been so great to continually increase our utilization of Funraise as they have added new features and updates, which they do so regularly. One of the most important factors in choosing a platform for me is knowing I will have quality customer support to help me when I run into problems or questions - and Funraise excels with this!

Pros

Donation forms are easy to create and embed in our website even for those of us who are not web developers, and when a donor gives on that form, the donation automatically is entered into our CRM, Salesforce.

Cons

The one feature we would really love to have access to but do not would be an online portal system for donors to manage their recurring donations and payment methods.

ANGEL AID = Donor LOVE. Funraise = Donor TECH!

2020-12-10

We've run global Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) campaigns with donors and volunteers from Microsoft, Amazon, Walt Disney Company, Netflix, Horizon Therapeutics ~ they have high expectations about the user experience and Funraise has never let us down.

Pros

Three things make Funraise the best donor management software on the market: 1) Technology built by nonprofit leadership for nonprofit leaders.

Cons

The ticketing function negates the ability for donors to sign-up for recurring donations.

Great platform, super easy to use and the customer support is fantastic!

2021-02-04

Prior to Funraise, we had no donor management system (unless you count excel...) and this changed the game for us.

Pros

I also love the aesthetic of the platform; it is so easy on the eyes! The reporting filters were very convenient and it avoided the need for excel or sheets.

Cons

To note, we are a Canadian based non-profit so the tax receipt requirements are different.

I've tested A LOT of donor CRMs, and this is hands-down one of the best!

2021-01-21

Funraise has not only helped us raise so much more money, but they've also helped relieve us of administration work with their automation, tracking, and report functionality.

Pros

Not only is the donor functionality easy and helpful, but the back-end reporting and relationship tracking is where they really beat their competition.

Cons

They used to not have a clean and easy way to design fundraising pages, but all of that has changed with the new update and it truly is one of the best comprehensive donation platforms in existence right now!

Moving to Funraise has been a positive move for us and their customer support has been outstanding.

2017-09-20

We've seen an increase in our online donor conversion rate which is exciting and it's the first time we've had fundraisers launch very successful fundraising campaigns.

Pros

It's helped out conversion rate having donors able to donate directly on the page they're looking at without being redirected elsewhere.

Cons

For example, the MailChimp integration is awesome but doesn't provide a way for donors to opt-out of being added to our MailChimp list.

Great integrations

2021-01-23

Pros

It's extremely easy to set up & use, but also has great API functionality that allows our developers to integrate our fundraising data into other systems.

Cons

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.

LOVE WORKING WITH [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN]!

2020-07-22

I truly use her as a sounding board for fundraising campaigns and to understand how to best use the platform.

Pros

The giving form feature is the most impactful and I love the layout of the software.

Cons

Text-to-Give option would be helpful, especially with virtual events due to the pandemic.

2019-01-08

It is so much easier to customize donor experience when your management system does the tedious work for you!

Pros

I also really liked that you can send a specific email to each type of donor.

Cons

I wish I could send full out email campaigns (but that's a big ask when you already have players like MailChimp).

All in one CRM tool

2019-09-05

We're experimenting with peer to peer campaigns in our company so we purchased Funraise tool to integrate with Raiser's and our website.

Pros

It integrates with Raiser's Edge and automatically adds donors info to records and creates new records.

Cons

You need to setup an account with a company like Stripe to integrate donor payments with the system so it's a little time consuming to setup.

Highly Recommended

2019-01-04

What an amazing company to have on your nonprofit's side. You can feel that they genuinely care about all of their clients as well as the work that they do. It is also very exciting to be partnered with a young company that is learning from its clients and adjusting accordingly.

Pros

The features involved in running a report are game-changingly easy to operate and edit.

Cons

I do wish there were more features available to add into the giving forms for donors. Ex) a "how did you hear about us" section.

A Mighty and People Centered Platform

2021-03-09

We are so happy to have found this platform just in time. Our donors love it, our team loves it, and we love it.

Pros

Funraise's interface is incredibly user-friendly and designed simplistically, making it easy for anyone on a team to be easily onboarded and made to feel like they understand how to use the most advanced features.

Cons

I hope there is more investment in the direct messaging of donors in the future.

Wonderful Product!

2020-07-16

Our fundraising on Funraise has exceeded $120,000 and the feedback we hear from our donors is that it is a quick and easy way to donate.

Pros

We are a small grassroots organization and depended on PayPal to process donations but were in need of something more robust that could handle campaigns, data tracking, peer to peer campaigns and provide a comprehensive CRM.

Cons

Something else that would be helpful is a way to send group emails to all donors that supported a certain campaign.
