The software allows a small non profit to manage the data base and advance fundraising

Pros

Giveffect is an all encompassing fundraising software that includes online donations, offline gift tracking, volunteer management, donor management and donor relationships.

Cons

It is not as complex or intuitive as Raiser's Edge but it is A LOT less expensive!

Best switch of software we've ever made!

2015-12-18

As our focus turns to a targeted campaign for individual contributions and moves management plans for specific donors, the notes and task scheduler/reminder is going to prove invaluable.

So glad we changed to Giveffect, I wish we had done it sooner!

2017-03-02

Giveffect gets so much credit for having people there even on Friday night to help people with their chat support questions.

Pros

Very good, friendly customer service, fast response time, forward thinking system, easy for donors to use, complete system includes CRM, campaign pages, email contact system, website and so much more.

Cons

It is more expensive than other softwares we looked at, but probably worth the price.

Great for Non-profits!

2017-03-02

With Salesforce I had to go in and still manually input data into the database even though a volunteer had already registered with us.

Pros

Easy interface, simple to learn.

Cons

Some features are not available depending on your plan so keep that in mind.

Great All-in-one product!

2017-02-22

The main reason we chose Giveffect is that it had all the different systems we were interested in all-in-one, we had looked at Raisers Edge, E-Tapestry and Bloomerang for the donor piece as well as Volunteer Hub and SignUp.com for the volunteer platform, but the fact that Giveffect was integrated and the systems could all speak to each other was the main selling point for us.

Pros

The integration of various platforms that work together.

Cons

Nothing

Easy to use

2017-03-23

Before we found Giveffect, we had been using a combination of eTapestry, Volunteer Hub, and Constant Contact. What jumped out at us was the ability to consolidate the donation and volunteer piece in one program.

Giveffect.com Review

2017-03-03

From the get go, Giveffect's customer service has been top notch - they've had an answer for every question we've had and their team is readily available whether it is through their online "Chat with Us" feature, via phone or via email.

Pros

Giveffect has consolidated our process for us and eliminated the need to use multiple platforms.

Cons

I have yet to have a negative thought about Giveffect.

I would encourage you to call those using the software for references and also TRY the demo! We did both of those things and haven't had one regret. Our biggest hangup initially was the migration to a new platform, but their team helped us handle this with ease. It seems to good to be true, but it is so worthwhile.

Excellent Comprehensive Software and Easy to Use!

2015-12-21

Even when I hand off the donations that I've inputted into the database to our finance department for our auditors to see: A) what donations I've entered, B) what fund I assigned the donations to - it's so easy for them to put import data into Quickbooks.

We've used GivEffect since Dec 2015. It is the easiest CRM/fundraising software I've ever used.

2017-05-01

The ability to customize letters, communications, campaigns saves me time.

Pros

There are no tedious forms to fill out to change or add fields, you can do most of it yourself.

Cons

There are a few pieces that are only available in the upper tier, which is a bummer. Also, the number of administrators we can have is limiting. The cost to add what we need is probably as much as moving to the next tier - which is slightly higher than we're prepared to pay right now.

The other nice piece is that they provide step-by-step video tutorials right in the Giveffect dashboard. They also have online chat support, which is really nice.

So Helpful!

2017-03-01

This is one of the only companies I know that utilize the live chat feature in such a productive and efficient manner.

Pros

I like the ease of the software. I didn't have any technical training of the software but between the natural ease of it, the online assistance and the video tutorials I feel very confident using this software.

Cons

I don't think what I like least is really the software's fault. Being a smaller affiliate we don't have the highest level or membership. So sometimes the things I wish I could do... I can't because of that.

Easy to use and perfect for our needs!

2017-05-01

Pros

This is when we started looking at new software that could be a home for our data and our fundraising campaigns.

Cons

Minor bugs here and there that are addressed quickly. Duplicates not auto removed. Would love to see auto capitalization added when users add their own info in.
