Classy does not list transparent pricing on its website. To see pricing, you must submit your information on a contact form and wait to hear back. After waiting, nonprofits are frequently surprised to find Classy's membership fee is so high. Although Classy hides pricing on its own website, some information can be gleaned off of publicly available review websites such as Capterra.
