Changemakers have spoken. Givebutter is the #1 highest-rated fundraising platform
across leading software review sites, G2 and Capterra.
Great teams make great products. Givebutter has been recognized in April 2022 as a Great Place to Work, with 92% of employees saying it’s a great company, versus 57% at the average US company. 100% of employees said they trust leadership, have ownership over their responsibilities, and feel part of a positive working environment.
“It was the customer service and responsiveness of the Givebutter team that drew me in. It was immediate. It was personal. I definitely felt like I was not going to be alone during that process.”
We were using PayPal as our online platform, and many folks just did not trust it. A huge benefit to Givebutter is the variety of ways to give as well as the option to create an easy text-to-give code, sell tickets, and more. SO MUCH GOOD STUFF. Givebutter is not only easy; it makes it very easy to pass on the fees for credit cards to our contributors—or not. They have the choice of covering! Not only can we accept credit, but PayPal and VENMO, which is super important to our younger donors. All of this, and no fees. Zero. No hidden anything.
Director of Development
We really loved being able to utilize the text-to-give functionality. So many people don't carry cash anymore, so this was incredibly helpful at our event. It was super easy to set up and customize exactly to our needs. We also loved the dashboard that allowed us in real-time to see how close we were getting to hitting our fundraising goals. The young people at our event loved being able to use Venmo to make their donations. I also found it very easy to set up administrators, so we could be sure that everyone who needed to access the dashboard and donor info could.
With Givebutter being a free platform, it's perfect for nonprofits and has so many great features with donation collection, events (physical and virtual), and fundraising. We don't ever plan on switching away from Givebutter! We were spending too much on fundraising software, so Givebutter is extremely cost-effective.
President & Founder
The DeGood Foundation
Givebutter makes it simple for us to create different campaigns, offset processing costs, and integrates seamlessly with our accounting without creating additional steps from our old payment processor. For a small nonprofit, Givebutter provides great access to online donation processing and a unique ability to track and communicate with donors. It's easily one of the best ways for small organizations to raise more money even before putting in extra effort.
Givebutter is an easy to use, intuitive platform that has simplified our donation process. They provide great support to nonprofit organizations and businesses alike. They share helpful resources and tips on a regular basis—all with good humor and much-welcomed light-heartedness. Givebutter made their platform very affordable (free, I believe) to nonprofit organizations such as ours. This is incredibly helpful for any young start-up organization.
COO & Founder
Veterans for Political Innovation
After using a combined solution of PayPal, Stripe, and DonorBox over the last 15 years, we began migrating our donors to Givebutter in 2019. The difference has been noticeable and beneficial. Givebutter has streamlined our interactions with donors, decreased our workload in processing and transferring donations, and decreased our costs.

Givebutter is free to use and offers a wealth of great tools for accepting donations for nonprofits of all sizes. We are all really delighted at the robustness of what is offered by Givebutter, including SMS and email blasts, a handy and simple donor CRM, and embeddable donation and ticketing forms. Givebutter actually does some things that other platforms, which cost hundreds or more each year, don't do. The customer support is also fast, personable, and very helpful. A lot of thought has gone into making Givebutter easy, yet it also has a lot of features. We love everything about it and look forward to more features in the future. Other platforms like Givebutter either offer fewer features and tools or cost a lot (or any) money, so we are delighted by Givebutter as a small nonprofit.
Founder & Director
One of the things that works best as a business is the ability to provide this validation to our advertisers—or sharing about why people should participate with us—comes directly from the comments on our Givebutter Supporter Feed about how we’re a resource to the community, how we've helped their business, etc. There's a lot of different pieces of feedback and commentary that we captured over time that really helped to support the sales efforts for our business more than anything—and also on the fundraising side.
Co-Founder & COO
The right fit for a higher purpose project! Givebutter is easy to use, offers a high level of support, and made an impact on our fundrasier. Using the website campaign, we were able to have our event pre-setup, so we knew ahead of time who would be coming. The website did the work of inviting people and offering a donate button to push if they could not come to the live event.

Todd Morris Fire Protection
Take advantage of the ease and functionality that Givebutter has to offer. It's a really simple platform, and it's actually fun to donate! Other platform pages are generally very static and dry when making a payment, whether it's a donation or a literal purchase of something. Somehow, the Givebutter payment experience feels more lighthearted and that just adds to the experience!
Director of Annual Giving and Development Operations
Fenwick High School
I want to give a quick shout-out to the Givebutter team! We had many team fundraisers, which seemed really overwhelming to me. When I live chatted Givebutter, I had help setting it up within a minute, which was amazing. I was not expecting that. It's great for people to know that there's really a support team on the backend! And that support continued throughout the campaign. I was always able to reach the Givebutter team quickly and get support. Someone was always there to back me, which was really helpful.
Camp Moshava of Wild Rose
What was important to me was to choose a platform that I felt would be super user friendly and fun so our volunteers could put minimal work in but still get a lot out of it. That's when we found Givebutter, and we're so happy to have found it. I absolutely would love to use this platform again next year—even if we're in person—because I felt like it was so user friendly and fun and helped us spread the word so quickly. We're thinking that we’ll never go back to fully in person events; it may just be hybrid events from now on.
Vice President of Advancement
Summit Area YMCA
Givebutter campaigns are great because they're easy to search, easy to find, and people really enjoy participating in them. Givebutter was very user friendly for everybody. There wasn't a lot of training that you have to do because it was so user friendly to begin with.
Digital Fundraising Manager
Harry Chapin Food Bank (United Way Partner Agency)
One of my favorite things about Givebutter is that it’s evolving so quickly. I love how much the Givebutter team wants to know what’s going on, how the platform’s being used, and what could be better. I just feel like I constantly see these new features just as I need them and just as I want them. Just as I wanted to do this livestream, I got an email saying, “And now you can do livestream on your page!” That’s something that I just so appreciate about Givebutter because it’s not this stale piece of software that was built 15 years ago. It’s really on the leading edge of fundraising, constantly.
Former Marketing and Engagement Director
Trinity Habitat For Humanity
I researched a lot of platforms like GoFundMe and Eventbrite. I wanted a platform that combined the two, where you could donate AND sell tickets too. The only one that I could find that merged the two was Givebutter. I also wanted one where you could really personalize it. Plus, the fees for Givebutter were less than anybody else I could find. It was really important to Ashley and I that everything went to our cause.
The Movement Shop
Givebutter is an extremely easy and comprehensive platform. The aesthetic giving pages, forms, and event sites provide all of the tools I need as a small nonprofit to compete with larger nonprofits with more resources at a minimal cost. I would 10/10 recommend using Givebutter, especially if you are a small nonprofit just trying to get things off of the ground. The quality has only enhanced our professionalism and reach—without paying an arm and a leg. Givebutter is providing easy-to-use, branded giving forms that we can embed in our website. They have also given us the opportunity to create event pages and giving days all in one platform! I am excited to continue growing in my knowledge and use of this software to reach untapped potential.
The Fellowship of Catholic University Students
It was the customer service and responsiveness of the Givebutter team that drew me in. It was immediate. It was personal. I definitely felt like I was not going to be alone during that process. The low cost was a real benefit for us, and your case study on the percentage of donors that actually cover the fees was really promising to me. It was definitely a low-cost solution, and it had an integration with the database that I use. It just seemed like a perfect fit.
Director of Advancement
John Paul II Newman Center
Our experience with Givebutter Livestream was very lively, which was really nice. It was engaging—I think that’s one of the best words to describe it. People stayed engaged, and that’s really important when you work with donors. Also, it was really easy for the team to get it up and running. Givebutter is a very friendly platform to use as an organization.
Founder & CEO
Wendy Hilliard Gymnastics Foundation
Givebutter provides us with a way to gather donations, make events fun and engaging, and then all the information is synced with our CRM through an additional intergration. The amount of time we save doing data entry is priceless for our small organization.
The Madonna Learning Center
We like the friendly and helpful customer service, the intuitive platform, and the ease of using it for our fundraising efforts. Compared to other platforms we have used, it is easy to understand, budget friendly, and user friendly.
Senior Director of Finance and Operations
Givebutter is a fantastic platform for fundraising efforts. The support team is beyond any expectation from a fee-based platform, as there is no platform fee with Givebutter makes the support quality extraordinary.
Director of Development
Givebutter has TRANSFORMED our fundraising! Givebutter makes donating and sending acknowledgment effortless for our team. I love how easy it is to build out campaigns and search for donor information.
Director of Advancement
Givebutter focuses on the customer. As a one-stop for non-profits, it has great potential, as it can replace a CRM tool, a text blast tool, a ticketing platform, and more.
Special Needs Respite, Inc.
If you haven't heard of Givebutter yet, you're in for a treat. It's one of the easiest fundraising platforms to use out there and it doesn't take much time to learn how to use it effectively. The platform itself is easy to navigate, especially as they continue to release new features and updates.
Givebutter makes it easy to make your online fundraising campaigns looks amazing and to spark donor engagement. We were first drawn to them because we use a lot of crowdsourcing events, and their team fundraising tools are easy to use. We also livestreamed our virtual talent show through Givebutter and I am convinced that the ease of donating while watching through the platform helped us raise more revenue. Their customer service is also fantastic!
Montclair Fund for Educational Excellence
There are so many things to like about Givebutter. The ease of which it has given our donors to give money to the school, the texting feature is fabulous for our younger tech-savvy doors and this platform is FREE!!! The customer support goes above and beyond on any issue or questions we may have as an organization and even helps us customize many of their features. Our strategic campaigns, such as Giving Day, has resulted in bringing in more money since we started using Givebutter. It truly has been a game-changer when it comes to raising money.

Real Options for City Kids
Givebutter is so easy to use—our fundraisers span a range of demographics and age groups and none have had any issues getting signed up and started. NO FEES lets our tiny grassroots nonprofit maximize the funds that go to our cause (instead of admin and credit card fees)!
Chicago Polar Bear Club
We quite literally raised over 10 times as much money on Givebutter compared to last year’s event using GoFundMe. I can’t say enough how awesome this platform is for fundraising, and also how much fun we had using it.
