User-friendly and always evolving

Reviewed 2 years ago

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...

Vendor response

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.

First foray into online giving platform--so easy to use!

Reviewed 2 years ago

We are delighted that donors can cover the cost of fees if they decide too (and we can opt to ask them to or not). I am finding it super easy to use and if I have a question, I can get an answer pretty quickly!

Pros

GiveButter is straightforward and easy to use! It's also flexible in that you can start out using it for fee (aside from fees). I like that we can set up easily new campaigns and track donations to them. The customer support is great and very responsive (even without the premium account). It has allowed our organization to try out text to give without investing in a contract and we have been using it for our regular donations as well because it's so easy and we can ask donors to cover the fees if they want (and most of them do!).

Cons

Where you make changes to your campaign/settings-- isn't super intuitive to me (I hunt around on where to find what I need to tweak). If the payout history could get provide detailed reports that would help out accounting (it's in the works, I believe?)

Vendor response

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review, Susie! We do have more payout data for accounting purposes in the works! We'll be sure you're subscribed to updates in our feature request portal. We look forward to supporting you for years to come!

A Great Switch

Reviewed 2 years ago

We have been very pleased with Givebutter and their openness to update/upgrade their platform based on feature requests of the non-profit users.

Pros

The user interface with Givebutter is much better than the previous online donation form we were using. We like that it is a step-by-step click through opposed to a long form to fill out. Having the ability to run an online donation and an event page in the same system is helpful to our team to not have to learn two different types of platforms.

Cons

Givebutter promotes itself to be free to the non-profit, and the donor pays the platform fees. We would like to be able to choose to pay a monthly price to pay some of the platform fees on our own (as we know it is part of doing business) instead of passing them on to the donor every time.

Vendor response

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review, Rhea! We love reading that donors are finding your new donation form easier and more enjoyable to use. We appreciate you letting us know your preferences about platform fees, too. We can certainly take this into consideration!

Easy To Use/Low Overhead

Reviewed 2 years ago

We had to change the way we were accepting online donations due to a change in what our parent organization was requiring in terms of security documentation. And, we needed to do it very quickly. GiveButter was able to provide the necessary documentation we needed for the "higher ups" and was very easy for me to get set-up and working.

Pros

Love how easy it was to create and implement an online donation campaign.

Cons

No disappointments at this stage, but we have only used it for accepting online donations.

Vendor response

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review, Deborah! We're glad to hear our security practices fit your organization's high-security needs. The feedback about our response times is much appreciated, too. We can review the conversation timelines to be sure we were able to implement improvements based on the experience supporting your team.

Everyone should use Givebutter!

Reviewed 4 years ago

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.

For the price, you can't beat it!

Reviewed a year ago

Overall, we had a great experience with Givebutter. If you a small nonprofit and watching your pennies, give them a try.

Pros

The price--we used the free version, so we can't complain and the customer service--they have fantastic customer service!

Cons

It is difficult to customize GiveButter's events at this time. They are growing their offerings and I really hate to complain about a free service.

Positive Experience Both Times Using

Reviewed 4 years ago

I used it as a fundraising platform for my college business org, a 501(c)(3). People enjoyed it and we got a lot of positive feedback from it.

Pros

I liked the UX/UI - it's a simple design with not an inundating amount of features that is easy and fun to use.

Cons

Brand recognition is pretty low - people are less willing to put their cc information into a website that they don't recognize. I think marketing could go a long way - maybe through a high profile fundraiser for some college phone-a-thon or something.

GreenLight Loves Givebutter!

Reviewed 4 years ago

GreenLight Solutions Foundation found Givebutter when we were searching for a cost-effective way to crowdfund and raise money to grow our organization. When we joined Givebutter a little over a year and a half ago the whole process was pretty new for us, but overtime it became easier to use and has really helped us do more than we could have with out it. Funds from Givebutter have helped pay for supplies for students at ASU, project materials for local businesses, and even helped pay for our business trip to Pittsburgh to attend the 2018 AASHE Conference! We love Givebutter's new homepage/interface/UX and the fun communication/branding is cool too. Many thanks to Max & his team!!

Pros

Fun company, simple to use software, and excellent customer service. Givebutter has helped grow our organization by cultivating grassroots fundraising efforts.

Cons

Some functionality is difficult to navigate on the website, like going between campaign and chapters and such...although with the new set up it does seem easier to use.

Crowdsource Awesome in a Flash

Reviewed 3 years ago

I needed an online mechanism for raising funds for a community project (crowdsourcing birdhouses for placement in our greenbelts). Givebutter offered an ideal solution to the challenges I faced. With low overhead costs and a pleasing interface, I finished my project entirely satisfied with my choice of the platform.

Pros

The platform was very easy to get up and running. User interface was excellent and very intuitive. Feature set, while fairly simple, was very easy to use and clearly represents a well-thought out approach to modern fundraising. The platform documentation was helpful in articulating some of the platform's more advanced capabilities.

Cons

I needed to collect custom metadata with my campaign, which is a feature that isn't user-facing as of today. But their customer service (yes, they have that!) quickly and cherfully implemented my require fields.

Excellent Platform at Lowest Price (Essentially Free)

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

The platform provides for crowdfunding tools like sharing on social media along with all of the traditional tools we look for in a fundraising platform, such as monthly giving, embedding on our own website, customizable donation page, and multiple fundraising campaigns. And by allowing donors to pay the processing fees and tip GiveButter, it's essentially free to use!

Cons

Nothing at all. It is an excellent software.

Vendor response

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review, Gabe! We love to hear that Givebutter is ticking all those boxes for you as a new nonprofit. We look forward to supporting Pawster Nashville for years to come!

Givebutter is helpful, user-friendly, and EASY!

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

I love the format of Givebutter's donation page. It made it so easy for alumni of all ages to donate to our cause! I also love how easy it is to get the money for your cause -- They can either send you a check in the mail or can transfer it into an account. I love having those options. Also, the fees are very very minimal, and I would gladly pay something as low as 1-2% for an excellent platform and service. Lastly, accepting venmo is an awesome idea!!

Cons

Honestly had such a great experience -- no complaints here!

Perfect for small nonprofits

Reviewed 2 years ago

In terms of a startup nonprofit, we are totally excited about Givebutter and it's ability to get us up and running online quickly and without an initial burden of cost

Pros

I really like the ability to have a web presence for donations without a monthly recurring cost

Cons

I wish there was a native integration with our Wix website to keep the interface branded as ours

Vendor response

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review, James! We're thrilled to be a part of getting Fortified Strength up and running, and keeping your costs low.

Awesome giving platform

Reviewed 3 years ago

Customer service is excellent. Very easy to set up our campaigns and to push them out to our alumni via email, social media, and text.

Pros

I looked for months for a platform that would accept Venmo and Apple and Google Pay and integrate with our own database. GiveButter has it all! Affordable, easy to use for both the administrator and the user, and customizable.

Cons

There is nothing negative about GiveButter
