Community Brands Collects Seven Top Rated Awards from TrustRadius

Q2_2022_Give Smart Trust Radius Announcement

GiveSmart takes four total awards 

Community Brands, our parent company and the leading provider of cloud-based software and payment solutions for associations, nonprofits, and K-12 schools, earned seven 2022 Top Rated Awards from TrustRadius with multiple accolades for both its GiveSmart® and MIP Fund Accounting® brands.  

GiveSmart earned four Top Rated Awards, receiving acclaim in the Nonprofit Fundraising, Event Management, Virtual Event, and Donor Management categories. The recognition for its Event Management and Virtual Event solutions marked GiveSmart’s second consecutive year with Top Awards in the two categories. 

“These awards are based directly on feedback from their customers,.” said Megan Headley, VP of Research at TrustRadius. “TrustRadius reviewers highlight GiveSmart’s ease of use and scalability for larger events, as well as their helpful support staff.”  

Our sister company, MIP Fund Accounting, took a trio of Top Rated Awards for Nonprofit Accounting, Accounts Payable, and Expense Management. After earning the 2022 Most Loved Award earlier this year, MIP repeated its 2021 Top Rated awards in Accounts Payable/Accounts Receivable and Expense Management. MIP, currently celebrating its 40th anniversary, continues to build on a history of excellence. In 2021, it garnered three Best of Awards for Feature Set, Support, and Usability attributes.  

Since 2016, the TrustRadius Top Rated Awards have become the B2B’s industry standard for unbiased recognition of technology products. Based entirely on customer feedback, the awards have never been influenced by analyst opinion or status as a TrustRadius customer. This year’s Top Rated Awards program assessed 60,000+ customer reviews and chose software product winners across 501 technology categories. A detailed breakdown of the methodology and scoring used by  TrustRadius in determining Top Rated winners can be found here

GiveSmart and MIP Fund Accounting by Community Brands are proud to create products that inspire such gracious feedback in our user communities. Thank you for supporting our work, and for sharing your feedback on TrustRadius.

What our clients say

We needed a platform to make sales online and to track and display ads for our sponsors. GiveSmart was perfect. We ended up making close to $15,000 more than we had hoped for. Definite better ROI than we anticipated. The interface is easy to use and provides plenty of options to get help if needed.

Using GS has created ease in auction bookkeeping, payments, and generating post-event thank you/tax letters. While we were online during COVID, our interactions with our GiveSmart via phone, email, and zoom were seamless. A representative always got back to us within the day. I would recommend GiveSmart to anyone doing a large online event.

GiveSmart is highly flexible - you can use it for [a] simple registration and check-in, to full-scale galas with complex order forms, onsite upsells, live auctions, seating management, and more.

GiveSmart is easy to use and ideal for virtual events and can be used for in-person events to manage the silent auction, seating charts, and check-in to the event. Being able to use the platform for unlimited events within the contract year is very useful and being able to add other users and volunteers for different levels of access is helpful as well.
