    The software has enabled our team to respond quickly to changes, create very effective fund raising campaigns, effectively track contributions, and most important to remain relevant as a non-profit. Our organization is comprised of all volunteers and the funds we raise go directly to the work we are doing so any administrative cost such as web hosting etc. affects our ability to fund our projects. Flip cause is an incredible value proposition for our non-profit!

    Pros

    I love everything about this software, it's ease of use, reports, ability to create fund raising campaigns, make changes and their customer support is beyond great! What I like best however is how quickly and professionally they respond to our needs and interact with my team. If I could I would give them 10 stars out of 5!

    Cons

    I have asked every member of our team to tell me what their issues were with Flip cause and thus far there are none. We love the responsiveness, the cost vs. value is outstanding and as such I have no negative comments!

    Pros

    The Flipcause team is very responsive to their customers. They don't feel like some gigantic organization that doesn't have time for you, like a lot of services out there. They're constantly working to expand and refine their product, and as a fellow startup, I can appreciate their roadmap and progress. And I don't think you'll find any other software that does as much for non-profits for their pricing. It's pretty unheard of.

    Cons

    Some of the backend of setting up campaigns and managing contacts is not as intuitive as I would want it to be. However, their support teams are super-accessible and willing to help. And, honestly, the more that a system is able to do, the less intuitive it generally is...no matter the system, you have to put in the work to understand it.

    Ease of use, great pricing, makes many aspects of fundraising more efficient.

    Pros

    Flipcause's ease of use and pricing are the most wonderful aspects of the software.

    We have a small staff for our non-profit, so having this tool make many aspects of fundraising for efficient is also great.

    Cons

    I already get a great return on investment, but I would like more functionality to be added. But in classic Flipcause style, they are working on adding more functionality!!! What a great decision to go with Flipcause.

    We can now now update and customize our website whenever and however we like instead of calling a third party. I have zero experience with website editing and even for someone like me it is extremely easy to figure out. The biggest benefit has been that the credit card processing is all essentially done through our website as well. They charge the lowest credit card processing fee we have seen and then all the information is stored in a donor database in the back end. Another great perk of this software is the customer service/design team that comes with it. We host many events and donation campaigns throughout the year and they make it easy to customize and create something for each event on their website including ticket sales and specialty requests. If you don't have time to create the campaign yourself you can send the information over to them and they will create it for you. We really don't have enough great things to say about the Flipcause team because the change has just been so monumental since switching over. It is much less stressful to manage our website and donations and donor database through one company than having 6+ third parties we constantly have to call.

    Pros

    Prior to using Flipcause we had third party entities which hosted our website (3+ outside parties) plus more third parties that ran just the donation part of our website (again 3+ other parties). Because we were using all these third parties it was very difficult to track down individual transactions and edit our website or really just any of the basic components we needed to do. Switching to Flipcause has made a WORLD of difference. Now our online payments and website hosting/editing is all run through ONE company. We have saved a lot of money (and time) by cutting down on all the third parties we were using and have been able to take better control of our brand because it is so easy to run our website and donations on our own. A major bonus has been the donor database feature of the website. Customer service is always quick to get back to you, and they will even set up donation campaigns and events for you. Another great thing about Flipcause is they are always adding and updating features. I feel like they truly listen to their clients and what they need and update their software to fit that. Unlike other companies we've worked with, I truly feel like they are listening to us and care what we have to say.

    Cons

    We have been very satisfied with the software, and the customer service team. It may not be the ideal software for a very large non-profit, but for small-medium ones I think it is a great fit.

    We are able to run almost every campaign type we need and have a huge amount of flexibility.

    Pros

    All of the features are available at every price point, and there is ongoing development to continually improve the software. The developers listen to the customers and have created a dynamic, beautiful product that's easy to use and meets so many different needs.

    Cons

    There are some minor customizations that would require access to the coding that customers don't have - which I understand the reasoning behind. The restriction maintains quality control. We have very few complaints about this software.

    Cons

    I cannot email through the sight. We still need to use Constant Contact to send out our information. Would like to have the ability to create email blasts, newsletters, financial records that can be personalized to look like our brand.

    When loading pictures for the campaigns, it would be helpful to be able to resize the pictures within the FlipCause platform. Currently, we have to change the size of our images in AI.

    Hi Melanie, Thank you so much for your review! We're so glad you're able to save time with the campaign cloner. I hear you about image resizing and will forward your feedback to our Product team. For now, we recommend using the listed image dimensions in the interface before uploading images. You can also use a free image creator like canva.com, this can be a lot easier to use than Illustrator!

    It is more user-friendly and more of our donors are using this process to submit donations rather than mailing checks. The Flipcause feature to email receipts and acknowledgments is wonderful too even though we still generate our in-house acknowledgments to donors and families.

    Pros

    We use Flipcause for online donations on our website. It simplifies this process for our donors. It gives them the opportunity to select from various fields for their donations and also includes the feature for our donor to opt to include the processing fee with their donation. The majority of our donors are including this expense in their donation which helps our agency in reducing cost.

    Cons

    I would like to see a detail of the items for each specific deposit we make. I typically have to manipulate the system to create what I need and then sometimes I have to cross things off.

    Pros

    What I like most is the ability for donors to link directly to our website. Other fundraising platforms that we've tried in the past would require us to create separate pages and before you know it, things became too difficult to manage. This process keeps everything in one place for ease and accessibility, especially as it relates to not only fundraising, but donor management.

    Cons

    There's a lot of capability and I don't know if I'm taking full advantage of the potential of the site. This is due in part to the fact that training can sometimes be difficult to follow. When they ported into my computer to do a training, because they knew what they were doing, there was a tendency to rush through the explanation of the features, leaving me still somewhat uninformed as to what I can actually do with the software beyond fundraising.

    The unified backend for donations, events and ticket sales, volunteer appeals and individual fundraisers pages were huge factors in our decision to use flipcause over other services. Love that donors can cover processing fees too.

    Cons

    No mobile app. I'm sure their dev team is working on it, or that they're raising capital to do this, as this seems the next logical step. The backend's web UI is okay, and takes a bit of getting used to. I guess there'd be room for improvement in creating a more user friendly and lighter backend.

    What you get for the cost is incredible. No hidden fees or surprises. The success team is very responsive as well as the company as a whole.

    Cons

    The new mobile functionality has not been a good experience for us, and the follow up support with our problems and questions after our event was lackluster or didn't have the sense of urgency we would expect when you feel like you're missing a lot of money from an event. We thought transactions were going through during the event but it appears many of them didn't actually, with no way to recoup any of it.
