GiveSmart Features for Success 

Some of our highest impact, easy-to-use features are included in every GiveSmart fundraising plan, ensuring your school can find fundraising success. And, as a part of a greater network of K-12 solutions, GiveSmart connects every part of your school to best fuel your success.

GiveSmart fundraising plans include:  

  • Unlimited users/admins 
  • Unlimited peer-to-peer campaigns 
  • Text-to-donate  
  • Customizable, embeddable donation forms 
  • Digital wallet payments 
  • Recurring giving options 
  • Robust knowledge base 
  • Integrations 

Our simple, transparent fundraising plan options also include our award-winning auction, mobile bidding, online storefront, and guest management features as well as day-of-event support if you need it.  

[GiveSmart] is incredibly easy to use, and the training/help that is provided is just what is needed. It is very easy for me to train new admins, and they are able to train their users quickly. Unlimited events have caused us to use the product even more. It is very easy to create an event, so we have used it for much smaller events than we have in other event platforms.

Best-in-Class Plans, Support, Services, and Donor CRM

GiveSmart’s full suite of features doesn’t require multiple add-ons to support your mission and goals.

Our straightforward plans are designed with the modern school in mind, with a best-in-class CRM, online giving, auction management, and online store features as integral parts of our platform.
Our support team is available when you need them via phone, chat, and email, working those nights and weekends, too.
Our Donor CRM offers an easy-to-use, donor-centered solution that moves your mission forward. Our education partners consistently see higher donor retention rates because of our automated thank you wizard.

Donor Connect didn’t offer social media integrations, in-platform emailing, or any meaningful customization or support options—limiting your school’s potential and reach. Fundraise and connect with your supporters without limits.

GiveSmart Integrations

GiveSmart is a part of Community Brands, which offers technology solutions that collectively meet all of a school’s fundraising, donor management, admission, tuition management, accounting, and school communication system needs within one vendor relationship for a more streamlined experience.  

Coupling GiveSmart with any of our K-12 solutions ultimately saves your school time and effort so you can best serve your students, staff, families, and supporters.
