Their templates can appear a bit dated at times and adding fields can be a bit complex depending on what you're looking for, but overall it's a great tool

I hesitated to write this, fearing I would put the team behind GivingFuel in a tough spot. What I mean, is there is no way they can offer the same amount of amount of time attention they gave me to each one of their customers. I am in the military and was working to set up a non-profit that both accepts funds to directly support Soldiers and Airmen, and their communities. The first person I talked to at GivingFuel was co-founder Eric. He didn't seem at all interested in me buying his product. Instead he offered his expert advice on avenues I might pursue to succeed in my efforts; even offering advice on word usage and domain names I was working to refine. I thought it was a lucky break, talking to one of two co-founders, but that was before I learned that his entire staff is just as knowledgeable and passionate as him. I had to submit three bids from like products, and GivingFuel was so much cheaper, with such a more professional look that I'm not convinced they turn a profit. The staff I've worked with reinforced this suspicion. Whether through phone or message, they all have that same refreshing, non-profit, glowing type of attitude, the type that emanates only from people lucky enough to trade in the business of altruism. Ok, enough about the staff... Setting up is easy. You can start accepting donations in minutes, and the pre-designed templates are beautiful. Or, you can customize the crap out of your site! That's the route I went. I'm not very techy, but their online chat and phone customer service is amazing. They can see the page you are working on from their end, allowing them to walk you through anything you might be trying to do. I have several different pages for accepting donations. For example, the page for accepting the donations that will go directly to service members is different than the page accepting donations that will be used to fund community service projects, and IT'S THE SAME PRICE! You pay for your account, not the pages. You can have as many pages as you want. The funds are sorted for you in the analytics that come with the service. This was so important to my efforts because it allowed me to start the foundation with no budget. Because I knew I could put info, pics, and even video on my GivingFuel donation page, I was able to use my GivngFuel page to communicate our foundation efforts to potential donors, rather than waiting to start the foundation after I secured funds for a future informational page. Thanks GivingFuel!

One of the most powerful tools I've seen, and the SMS function is off the charts great if that is core to your fundraising. For many it is not, and after the initial tools it's really the integrations that matter. I've found better solutions for several non profits who needed a CRM more than just fundraising. But if you need fundraising alone with integration into your systems, this is a great choice.

Pros
GivingFuel is an open platform that integrates with many tools you'll use, so the beauty of this API driven interface allows a flexibility beyond most platforms. As a non profit marketer and fundraiser, the landing pages it shares are powerful, responsive, and just look so good and are easy to use. The SMS value of this tool is also awesome, you get it instead of paying extra. The price is great and affordable, though if you integrate other tools they will cost you, but still in the end if you are tech savvy enough to integrate all these tools, you'll have a powerful platform.

Cons
It's only a fundraising tool, without a CRM, and I find that for most non profits these kinds of tools depends on the CRM the team is using to track donations, leads, and who is closing. The strength of integrations has also been a challenge for some non profits I help. I've steered several away because they could not juggle all the various integrations (even though it's usually a one time thing, you're still managing on multiple platforms ongoing) and the management of them. For teams that can, this is an awesome tool.

Pros
One of several donor-focused solutions comes by the name of Giving Fuel. Now a disclaimer up front- I am very discerning when tech tries to disrupt nonprofits. It seems like there is a huge disconnect between tech and Nonprofit needs. Not so with Giving Fuel. They have created a product that is easy to use and one that lays into a nonprofits brand instead of making the Nonprofit lay into their Brand. Bravo Giving Fuel for keeping the focus on the charity. The Giving Fuel platform is super easy to use and can have you up and collecting much-needed funds within minutes. I have implemented this software with two different organizations and they love it.

Cons
The one drawback is the fee charged for offline donations logged in the system. I think it is a bit much and they also charge a similar registration fee for offline registrations with their Regfox. It feels a bit of a nickel and dime situation but I understand they are running a business too and not a charity.
