Launched in 2009, Fundly is an online fundraising platform used by nonprofits, charities, clubs and other organizations that seek to raise money for a cause.
With this application, fundraisers can create custom, mobile-friendly donation pages with videos and photos, while the iOS mobile app enables them to track contributions and supporter activity from any Apple device.
Communication tools let campaign managers import contacts and customize email templates, then send thank-you emails, appeal letters and other messages to those contacts through Gmail, Yahoo, Survey Monkey and Constant Contact.
Fundly also includes built-in social sharing features that allow supporters to post donation pages on their networks, increasing campaigns' reach. And campaign managers can publish posts that appear in supporters’ activity feeds to keep them updated on campaign progress and milestones. Finally, Fundly’s integration with Facebook’s OpenGraph lets fundraisers broadcast messages to the most engaged supporters.

I like the ease of use, accessibility, and that it's from a well known and trusted source.
The lack of statistical reporting. It could benefit larger organizations to see where donations come from.
Fundly is great for quick, last minute fundraising in smaller increments. Large fundraising might be better suited to a more agile site.

I trust that donations are delivered to intended recipients.
The website is a little cumbersome. The offers could be streamlined and categorized a bit better.
Separate the donation offers more thoroughly - sending a band to California is nice, but it's not as critical as donating for a heart transplant.

How versatile the product is; you can apply it to essentially any situation.
It is not as secure as I would like; there are some problems with the security.
Make sure you are reviewing the correct software, and evaluate the software.
John from Calvary Temple
It was easy and nice to work with. The process was simple and everyone there responded quickly. It was very simple to raise money for a good cause.
There was really nothing that I didn't like. It was great the whole way around. There are no complaints at all.
I would certainly recommend it. It's great and easy to work with.
