Givebutter is so easy to use, the functionality is huge for a free platform, and as a nonprofit struggling to raise money—Givebutter makes it easier than any other platform to connect with donors. Givebutter solves the problem that small nonprofits have a hard time raising money and finding platforms within their budget to help them get over the hump and make an impact. As a young nonprofit, we have struggled to fundraise and connect with potential donors as well as reengage with our current/previous donors, but Givebutter has made a platform that makes it easy to solve those problems. I suggest using Givebutter to almost all of my nonprofit friends because it's a free platform that makes something as important as fundraising and donor management—often heady topics for early nonprofit professionals like myself—digestible and attractive.
