Alternative to Flipcause?

    Hey All,

    Our organization has been using Flipcause for a few years now, and to keep it short - we really aren't liking it.
    We currently use it for folks to make donations on our website, purchase one of the guides we sell, or register for workshops and events we host. Does anyone else use and recommend something that does all of those things in one?

    Thanks in advance for any input!

    Hi Sara,

    There are a lot of options out there, but which one is right for your org depends on a lot of factors.  A couple of the biggest considerations are budget and what is your CRM or database of record?   That said, a few to look at include www.neonone.com, www.bloomerang.co, www.qgiv.com and www.classy.org.    Here is a guide we put out last year that focused on different peer-to-peer fundraising tools.  Many of them also include general donations, event registration and other features. http://cathexispartners.com/the-peer-to-peer-fundraising-technology-landscape/

    Happy to jump on a call to talk through specifics.

    Thanks for the resources. But for Mark at cathexispartners, when I tried to download the report via your link, I get a warning saying it is from an unsafe/insecure site. Is that normal or just a browser thing? Thanks.
