We really loved being able to utilize the text-to-give functionality. So many people don't carry cash anymore, so this was incredibly helpful at our event. It was super easy to set up and customize exactly to our needs. We also loved the dashboard that allowed us in real-time to see how close we were getting to hitting our fundraising goals. The young people at our event loved being able to use Venmo to make their donations. I also found it very easy to set up administrators, so we could be sure that everyone who needed to access the dashboard and donor info could.
