CauseVox is a customizable online fundraising application that enables nonprofit fundraisers to build media-rich campaign pages and collect online and offline donations.
Users have the option to create pages using CauseVox’s built-in templates and customization tools, or completely control the design themselves using HTML/CSS. Text, images and videos—including YouTube videos and Flickr slideshows—can then be uploaded or embedded on the page to enhance the organization’s message. Further, fundraisers can tailor settings to align with their fundraising goals by defining donation tiers, campaign dates, progress bars, impact metrics and more.
Donor information—including names, email and postal addresses—is automatically captured, and can be exported as needed to support email marketing and other communications. At the same time, each donor is emailed a customized donation receipt.
CauseVox pages are mobile-friendly and include Facebook and Twitter social sharing functions, so any supporter may broadcast the campaign’s message across their networks.

In a previous year I used it, it didn't work well with PayPal and motivated donors couldn't get into the portal to give. They seem to have fixed that, but we became aware of the issue the day of a major fundraising event and we are pretty sure we lost some revenue because of it. They were apologetic, offered solutions after the fact but didn't give us a price break or refund of any kind. That's my main reason for giving them four stars instead of five.
It's very affordable and allows users the option of using the software for a limited period of time, e.g., connected to a specific campaign. It is customizable so it's easy to make it look fairly seamless with an organization's brand and materials. It can be buggy sometimes BUT the customer support is really solid, so that makes it worth it.
Can be buggy, sometimes donors don't seem to be able to give, or fundraisers inexplicably lose the ability to share their fundraising pages.

Simple to set up and customizable - it looks very nice and clean.
Brand name is not as well known as others so many aren't certain about how much to trust it.
Compare it to other experiences with similar websites.

Excellent client support, intuitive admin functionality, appealing, clean design, great people in a company with high integrity and a true philanthropic purpose.
There are some feature (but not many) we would like to see added in in future rollouts (they probably will and are great with hearing our feedback and requests).
We deviated from Causevox one year and regretted it. This company offers the very best product and service for the cost.
