Why Nonprofits Choose
OneCause over Classy

Flexibility & Configurability

OneCause

OneCause understands the complexities of online and peer-to-peer campaigns, which is why we offer flexibility in the nuances of ticketing, registration, and branding to fit your nonprofit’s unique needs.

Classy

In an attempt to drive donation conversions, Classy has historically offered little customization, leaving nonprofits with limited options for unique branding, registration, and ticketing.

Engagement & Activation

OneCause

With engagement strategies like affinity groups, secondary events, contests, and drawings, OneCause equips your nonprofit to engage and activate your supporters for the long haul.

Classy

When giving slows down in longer campaigns, Classy lacks the necessary tools you’ll need to drive engagement and consistent giving throughout the life of your fundraising.

Industry Leading Event Software

OneCause

Having supported 11,000+ nonprofits in more than 70,000 fundraising campaigns since 2008, OneCause matches its robust event software and award-winning support with an experience unmatched by anyone in the industry.

Classy

While Classy Live offers basic elements to support a fundraising event, it’s missing key innovations that would otherwise save time and drive revenue for its customers.

Award-winning
Support

OneCause

From the moment you begin planning your events and online campaigns, our award-winning support, consulting, and customer success teams stand ready to assist you in your fundraising journey.

Classy

Seen in its lower online ratings for customer support, nonprofits consistently report difficulty in receiving quality, timely assistance from Classy – a critical piece when considering events, online giving & peer-to-peer software.
