How do you pick the fundraising plan that’s just right for your organization?

Once upon a time, there was an amazing fundraising professional named Goldilocks. She was browsing the web, looking for a new fundraising platform for her organization, The Three Bears Care. Pretty soon, she came upon GiveGab!

Upon finding GiveGab, Goldilocks saw three fundraising plans in front of her:  There was the donor-centered Engage Plan, a feature-rich Launch Plan, and a beginner Basic Plan. Goldilocks was so excited to try all three out and see which one was “just right” for her!

Just like Goldilocks, we’ll look at the features and the price points that make up the GiveGab fundraising plans and how you can choose the one that is “just right” for your organization! 

Your “Just Right” Fundraising Features

Basic

What makes this plan “just right” for me?

  • It’s Great for organizations planning on running one fundraising campaign per year or who focus mainly on volunteering and finding volunteers
  • Longer support wait times don’t bother me (up to 3 days)

Launch

What makes this plan “just right” for me?

  • It’s Great for organizations with many active fundraising campaigns throughout the year or for those looking to bolster their online fundraising efforts
  • I host fundraising events like 5Ks, Galas, Walkathons, Bowl-a-Thons, Triathlons, Marches, Golf Tournaments, Raffles, and more!
  • I may be short on time or resources, a fast response time from customer support (within 2 hours) is important
  • I might have a data geek on staff that loves to pour over numbers and analytics for my campaigns, including peer-to-peer performance and campaign referral sources
  • The majority of my online donations come from traffic on my website, and I want a customizable donation form that doesn’t direct donors away from my site, and also includes monthly giving options
  • I want unlimited access to download donation reports and the ability to manipulate the information as needed – or upload data to my donor management system

Engage

What makes this plan “just right” for me?

  • The Launch plan sounds great – but I want additional advanced features
  • Currently, my donors are organized via spreadsheet or pen and paper, and I want an easier way to keep track of them without exporting or downloading information
  • MailChimp is my go-to email service, and I want to connect my fundraising platform to my MailChimp account to easily email my supporters

Your “Just Right” Budget

Basic

What budget makes this plan “just right” for me?

  • The features on the Launch or Engage plan are not currently necessary for me (if they’re not necessary – we’d love to know why! Let us know via the chat bubble)
  • I intend to raise less than $19,600 online this year ( On the Basic plan, overall fundraising costs are lowest for organizations that raise less than $19,600)

Launch

What budget makes this plan “just right” for me?

  • The features on the Engage plan are not currently necessary for me (if they’re not necessary – we’d love to know why! Let us know via the chat bubble)
  • I intend to raise between $19,600 and $90,000 online this year (on the Launch Plan, overall fundraising costs are lowest for organizations that raise between $19,600 and $90,000 online)

Engage

What budget makes this plan “just right” for me?

  • I plan to raise more than $90,000 online this year ( On the Engage plan, overall fundraising costs are lowest for organizations that raise between $90,000 or more)

Fundraising Plans

* These costs are all approximate and are not a guarantee of the costs your organization will experience based on the variable nature of the per donation fees and the rate in which donors cover the fees.

So which plan did Goldilocks pick?

The Three Bears Care runs one fundraising campaign per year in the spring (“Where’s my Porridge?” Food Drive), and host a run in the fall (“The Great Bear Run to End Homelessness”) and have a healthy recurring monthly gift program.

Total, they process $78,000 in online gifts a year (on average). Goldilocks also values a fast response time as she needs extra support in the winter months while the rest of her team is… well… hibernating. 

Goldilocks and her team don’t have a ton of time to put towards their online fundraising efforts. They already have a way to manage their donors and appreciate the fact that GiveGab allows donors to download all of the reports they need.

Taking everything into consideration, the Launch plan is “just right” for The Three Bears Care.
