Pros: Ease of use, ability to incorporate our Shelter's personality/brand, the peer-to-peer fundraising capabilities, and event managment.

Cons: I wish we had a way to implement e-cards for our tribute donations! This is becoming a more and more common option on nonprofit websites.

4 a Good Cause is versatile, intuitive, and an excellent solution for our ongoing fundraising needs.

Pros: There is excellent, and I mean excellent customer support. I've used 4aGC in some unorthodox ways and Ronald always figures out, with me, how to make it work. The tracking and reporting are excellent, and the fees are more affordable than other "Standard" solutions.

Cons: I do think the software could expand into more areas, like creating an online shop that looks more like a shop, auction support, etc, just so all income streams can be covered by one software, but I understand those may be beyond the scope of what the company is really trying to achieve and the product is great as it is.

Overall: Streamlined campaign setup, customizable branded pages, excellent tracking and monitoring, great ecommerce security.

Pros: Rep makes the process of setting up donation pages easy and efficient. He always responds to our questions right away.

Cons: A community foundation has different online funding needs than most nonprofits, so there is a learning curve associated when using the product for the first time.

Pros: We have used other systems at the Y, but are so grateful we found 4agc! This software is user friendly and has helped us definitely improve and streamline our on-line fundraising efforts. Many thanks to the 4agc team for their excellent customer service and product! We would definitely recommend.

Cons: We like everything about 4agc including its simplicity. Anyone can use it and our donors definitely appreciate the ease of the product.

Pros: That Rep is available at any time with patience, understanding and suggestions on how to make the software meet me needs and those of my donors. Without his support I honestly don't know if my donors would be able to negotiate some of their problems.

Cons: The new version for our bowl-a-thon. I realize that you need to have 2 separate pages...the first to register and the second to establish a Fund Raising page, however, this caused major problems for my donors. Can you consolidate them or after they create a fundraising page, perhaps they can register on that page or visa versa.

2. It's difficult for the donor to print off their contributors on their fundraising page. They could only get a snap shot of certain sections...not the entire report for them to print off and view. They use these to write and or thank their donors.

3. They also were also frustrated that they couldn't edit their Fundraising Page. Many of my teams had changes and couldn't do so.

QUESTIONS:

1. Can you design a page that can be USED as a receipt for All of my events showing that they purchased their tickets online.?Something like what we print for tickets purchased on line for concerts.

2. For my Dancing with the STARS fundraiser is it possible to group the donors by Dancers by date or alphabetically? It's extremely time consuming to print the list of all donors and to have to separate the Vote Donors from the Ticket purchases? That would save a lot of time and effort.

3. Can't run a separate list divided by fundraisers/dancers (Rep will understand) for DWTSTARS. Can we discuss an easier way to retrieve that information.

I'll follow up with you offline to address your concerns. Much of what you are asking about can already be accomplished on our platform or is already planned as part of a feature release scheduled for later this year. Thank you for your business. We have enjoyed working with your cause these past 5 years. Your feedback helps us improve and hopefully being you more success in the future. Ronald Pruitt, President, 4aGoodCause

Pros: I love the customized customer service that we receive and the overall quality of the platform and support. Whenever we have a question about the platform, Ronald is quick to respond and to help us work through the issue. Our alumni and parent volunteers love using the site to fundraise for specific causes as well as for an easier solution than is currently available on our website. We truly love this software!

Cons: Like any software or platform there are a few features that we would like to have a greater ability to customize and fit for our needs, but overall the platform works for it's purpose! I will have to say that through conversations with the development team they are always willing to work with us to make it right.

Overall: We get great support, customer service, fundraising ability, and crowdsource fundraising ability.

Pros: 4aGoodCause is very user-friendly and easy to navigate. Customer support executive was very proactive in taking the time to train you on any new platforms, and is always readily available to answer any questions. He is always open to hearing feedback, or coming up with solutions to any issues that arise.
I especially appreciate the recent software updates, which allow you to create P2P fundraising pages, with enhanced user functions.
It's also very useful in storing past donor information, which you can access to help strategize in future fundraising campaigns.

Cons: It doesn't have as many animation/special effect options as you see with some of the major fundraising organizations, but that's to be expected. For its cost, it is a really great value!

Pros: With the new software, 4aGoodCause has become incredibly easy to use. From the donor perspective, it is only a two-step process but still provides all of the information they need. It is also mobile-responsive and looks very clean. From the nonprofit perspective, it is incredibly easy to set up new pages, items, donation amounts, or anything else you need. It really is dummy-proof!

Cons: You can really add most things you would need, though characters are limited. This is done as best practice, however.

Overall: We have seen our online donations increase significantly and have received feedback that our pages looks incredibly clean, clear, and professional. This takes limited effort on our end and really increases our ability to fundraise online.

Pros: It's ease of use and the quick turn around in customer service. It makes it easy to create new campaigns and get others to join a peer to peer campaign.

Cons: The one complaint would be the change in the reporting. I would love if it the donation report would tell me the fundraiser page, the team page and the campaign page the donation is tied to. Right now it only tells me the fundraiser and the campaign. If I could also know which team the donation is going towards it would make my life a lot easier.

Overall: We've raised significantly more money using this software than our old provider mainly because of the ease of use for our supporters.

Pros: The 4agcause team is very responsive to questions. They return phone calls and emails very quickly and help solve problems efficiently.

Cons: The templates don't leave much room for customization and the reporting features don't fully line up with our needs.

Overall: We were able to implement creative crowdfunding events with relatively user-friendly donation platforms. The reporting mechanisms are good - although they could be more customizable.

Pros: Easy to use, the most needed features, pages look great, low cost, and incredible, first class support!

Cons: Occasionally have a minor feature request, but support is always ready with a variety of solutions to solve it. Couldn't be more pleased.

Overall: This is the easiest recommendation to make. There's virtually no learning curve to be up and running like a pro fast. Setting up new pages, programs, and events can be done on the fly. Truly, the best I have seen.

Pros: 4aGoodCause offers everything we need in an online fundraising tool plus more! It is intuitive, easy to customize, and efficient. It has allowed us to customize our online giving campaigns with creativity while streamlining reporting. It revolutionized our annual Day of Giving campaign, allowing us to focus on fundraising throughout the day rather than counting donations and manually reporting results. The speed of customer service response is the fastest I have ever encountered.

Pros: 4aGoodCause offers an easy way for donors to contribute to our organization. And now our various departments and groups can set up approved events and peer-to-peer fundraising activities on their own. The 4aGoodCause team is very responsive to questions and technical glitches (which are rare) and really offers that extra effort to work with you to make your experience as hassle-free as possible.

Cons: The event management and peer-to-peer are new products and I'll be interested to see how they are built out over the years to accommodate some of the more complex event registrations and fundraising activities (i.e., reunions, fun runs, etc.)

Overall: Better customer service
