Testimonials From Lancaster County Community Foundation
Giving Day Experience
Tracy told us about the confidence the platform gave her and how that allowed her and the Extraordinary Give team to focus on enjoying and participating in their Giving Day.
"With the support of GiveGab, we had a confidence that the platform was working well and all of the details were under control. That allowed our team to really be able to focus on what's important which is relationships with our organizations, relationships with our donors and our sponsors, and to be able to be part of the celebration and excitement of the day of Extraordinary Give."
Learning the Platform
Tracy shared her experience learning how to use the platform and integrating it into her team's existing workflow.
"It was simple to just, plug in, and go. Any questions we had, the GiveGab team was right there walking beside us step by step, we always had the resources that we needed."
Tracy couldn’t pick a favorite feature, so explained how multiple features played a crucial role leading up to and during their Giving Day.
The Chat Bubble:
"The Chat Bubble feature is amazing because the GiveGab team is able to support all of the aspects of the Giving Day. They're supporting not only the questions from the participating organizations, as they set up their profiles and move through the system, they're also answering donor questions, and our team's questions. The Chat Bubble lifted so much work off of our team that we gained back hours worth of time to be able to do our day to day work."
Integrated Peer-to-Peer Fundraising and Matching Gifts:
"Being able to have integrated peer-to-peer and the business match was incredibly powerful, and we saw that our organizations were starting to tune in. We're hopeful that next year as our organizations are even more familiar with those cool features that they will be able to take even more advantage of it and grow our Giving Day."
