Pros: Easy to use, integrates into our DMS, customer service is fast and knowledgeable.

Overall: I have been using Firespring for about 5 years at two separate organizations. I first heard about the company when I heard their CEO, speak at a conference. He is a genuine guy who cares deeply about nonprofit work, plus he had some great tips on how to make your website more effective. So when I needed a website upgrade I thought of Firespring first. Their design templates are attractive and modern looking, very simple, and easy to easy to use even for those of us who are not HTML savvy. In addition, we use the Bloomerang DMS and Firespring integrates into it beautifully, saving us from having to manually enter online donations or registration forms.

I was skeptical at first

Comments: My organization bought a Firespring website after our Executive Director attended a free online webinar put on by their CEO Jay Wilkenson. The content of his session was amazing but I didn't think their website would make sense for us. I designed the original website for our organization and thought that their monthly fee ($129) was too expensive.

I can now say that I'm happy I was over-ruled because I couldn't have been more wrong.

First off, we were able to cancel a bunch of other stuff we were paying for: our Wordpress hosting account, our email marketing tool (we used Constant Contact), our EventBrite account (which I learned was costing us waaaaay more than I realized), our Paypal account, and the software we were using to manage our members. It all added up to nearly $200 per month. So, right off the top, we were saving $70. That doesn't even take into account the fact that we've increased donations on our site by 350% after just six months. And overall engagement is up nearly 500%.

If you sign up for Firespring, take advantage of Firespring's landing pages feature and attend their webinars on how to use landing pages and optimize your website for SEO. It will change the way you think about your website.

Take this from a converted,skeptic who prides herself on being a computer nerd -- instead of building a website from scratch using free WP plug-ins, look at Firespring's Springboard CMS platform. I'm able to do way more for my organization using their platform than I was ever able to do stringing a site together on my own using Wordpress.

Comments: The Firespring Springboard is super intuitive and easy to use. And if you ever forget how to do something or you hire a new employee/volunteer customer support is amazing at troubleshooting with you. The event management tool is awesome for most of our events but with a few of my more complex ones I have to get a little creative, especially when it comes to reporting. Otherwise it's awesome to have one central place for website, online marketing, events, and fundraising.

Thanks, Randy! If helping Volunteer Partners connect organizations with volunteers is wrong, we don't want to be right!

SO much easier than a no-service CMS and SO much cheaper than a custom site!

Comments: Firespring is totally worth every penny (and as a nonprofit, we don't have a lot of pennies lying around). You will never find yourself trying to learn how to code a plug-in into your website. They can do it all for you and it your website is always up, always accepting donations, and always sharing your mission. The best thing about Firespring for nonprofit organizations is that you get a really functional, professional, user-friendly website without having to go through all the crazy expense of a typical web development agency. They get how nonprofits work, and there¿s always someone there to help you with the technical things. And if you need a little extra, they¿re more than capable of doing custom programming, too. Firespring has been everything we¿ve needed for multiple websites.

Comments: Love using our Firespring website for Lincoln Children's Zoo. The springboard is organized and easy to navigate. The content is fast and simple to change, plus, I can style the text and insert graphics as much or as little as I'd like depending on the needs of the page.
