Customer reviews and testimonials

Peter Walle

In just under a year, we’ve added over 100 recurring donors to our network— a 20% increase. And in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic, 2020 was our most successful year of fundraising yet. Donorbox’s simple, easy to use integrations have played an undeniable role in driving this growth. Under the hood, Donorbox’s control panels give our team quick day to day insights on donor retention and campaign performance. The control panel also makes it easy for us to get our entire team involved with donor relationships.
