SPCA of Tompkins County
The SPCA of Tompkins County found the Ease, Support and Functionality they were Looking for with GiveGab!
The SPCA of Tompkins County is a no-kill animal shelter located in Ithaca, NY. Known as the first "green" animal shelter, it's quoted as being "good for people, good for animals and good for the planet."
Lynne Conway, Volunteer and Philanthropic Programs Manager for the SPCA of Tompkins County, shared her fundraising success story using GiveGab. Having used a different online fundraising platform in the past, Lynne described the frustration that ultimately caused her to make the switch.
Lynne stopped using an alternative fundraising platform due to a variety of problems, including, difficulty updating pages, trouble understanding exactly how much donors gave the year before in order to reach out to them again, and difficulty setting up registration for an event.
For Lynne, she liked that GiveGab was a locally based company that was professional with excellent technical support. It was easy for Lynne to set up impressive online fundraising without having to sacrifice a lot of time or effort to make it happen.
By comparison to other alternatives, Lynne said that GiveGab is easier to use, has better tech support, and looks fresh and modern on the interface!
Lynne's most positive experiences with using GiveGab included, being able to choose what the fundraising pages looked like from the various available themes, the ease of asking for money for pressing needs, and the ability to tell the SPCA's story in a concise way.
"We have raised funds for important initiatives without committing endless hours to make it happen."
When it comes to GiveGab's variety of platform features, Lynne told us that the image boxes and interesting color themes are her favorite aspect.
