✔ Trackable team fundraising
✔ Personalized pages with video support
Snap! Raise is best known for its sports team crowdfunding. Their fundraising pages are mostly well-equipped to do so. However, the company really falls short in their donor experience.
Givebutter offers an all-around better user-experience than Snap! Raise. One of the main ways Givebutter has done this is by creating a live Supporter Feed filled with stories and encouraging messages to encourage more donations. Givebutter is fully optimized for team fundraising and allows for individual members to join customized campaigns, easily receive credit for the donations they help bring in, and even send scheduled emails to donors!
Snap! Raise is primarily a crowdfunding platform, but it still lacks basic donation functionality across its site.
Givebutter offers a simple yet powerful donation form for collecting donations, dues, and other payments. You can even embed it right into your website or host on Givebutter.com. This same form powers payments across the Givebutter platform and can be fully customized to meet your payment processing needs. Did you know? Givebutter is the only fundraising platform to integrate with Venmo, the leader in mobile payments.
✔ Sell unlimited paid and free tickets
✔ Ask for optional donations on top of each ticket
✔ Collect donations from people who can't attend
✔ Add fundraising features like a goal bar, supporter feed, team fundraising, and much more
Snap! Raise does not support selling tickets or adding event details to fundraising pages, so here is a sad puppy :(
Givebutter makes it simple to sell tickets for events. Events on Givebutter come with all fundraising features built right in. This gives you the option of setting a fundraising goal, inviting your team to create personalized fundraising pages, engaging with your donors and attendees in the Supporter Feed, and more. Best of all, with events on Givebutter you will maximize dollars raised. Attendees can add donations to their ticket purchases and you can collect donations from those who can't attend.
✔ Invite unlimited users with distinct roles and permissions
Snap! Raise is not built for long-term fundraising success. Unlimited users or not, every time you start a Snap-Raise campaign you are starting from scratch. Plus, it takes weeks for funds to arrive.
Givebutter stores every piece of data you collect in a secure central dashboard for you to access and utilize for future fundraisers. Givebutter provides a suite of tools not on Snap! Raise that are particularly useful for groups, nonprofits, and teams. For example, you can invite and manage roles for unlimited members, receive paper checks in the mail (as well as bank or debit transfers), and integrate with thousands of third-party apps such as Mailchimp, Venmo, Quickbooks, Google Sheets, and more.

(Not a joke)
Simply put, Snap! Raise's fees are absurd. The company's pricing is not listed online but you can check out this link for hundreds of comments complaining about its complete lack of transparency and outrageously high fees. Per-transaction fees are over 25% and the average campaign keeps 70% or less.
Givebutter, on the other hand, believes in being completely transparent. Givebutter offers fixed transaction fees lower than 5%, which over 95% of donors voluntarily cover, resulting in an average overall fee to fundraisers of just 0.5% - the lowest in the industry.
You might be wondering how this is possible. Essentially, Snap! Raise invests in its sales and training program cost by charging you more. Givebutter takes a more digital approach to save significantly in cost so that you aren't charged an arm and a leg in fees.
Givebutter is a self-service fundraising platform. It's completely free to sign up, set up, and start fundraising – all in a matter of minutes. Read the Getting Started Guides here!
