Why choose Donorbox over Classy?

Simple To Use

Simple To Use

Donor Friendly Fundraising Features


Let your donors give by sending a simple text message from their smartphones.

Perfect for on-the-spot donation drives, church services, fundraising events, and conferences - our text-to-give campaigns can be set up in under 60 seconds!


After filling in their details on their first donation, your donors can use our Text-to-Give feature to give instantly on text using repeat donation — no forms or websites are required.
However, Classy’s ‘Text-to-Donate’ feature requires donors to use a donation page every time.


Cultivate support for your cause and generate predictable revenue by offering monthly and annual memberships to your donors.

Our unlimited, fully customisable membership tiers allow you to group your donors easily, and provide benefits based on each tier!


Classy does not natively offer a Memberships feature.

UltraSwift Pay

Enhance your donors’ payment experience by allowing them to use digital wallet payment methods which eliminate the need to input their personal details. On average, your donors will check out 4x faster using UltraSwift Pay.

By expediting their checkout experience you can reduce donor drop-off and make their giving journey more fulfilling than ever before!
