Classy is among the largest crowdfunding sites focused on philanthropy. Scot Chisholm, CEO and co-founder, believes the company can fundamentally enhance a nonprofits ability to raise money and perform effectively. Chisholm says, “A lot of nonprofits fear that online fundraising is impersonal and disconnected. They have a point, because if done incorrectly, a donation can seem purely transactional. We are changing that by making the experience of giving, or investing in a cause, remarkable for every organization on the Classy platform.” “We look at our technology as a growth enabler for nonprofits and social enterprises. Whether you’re running a startup nonprofit organization or one that is already well established, we want to help your organization operate at a higher level of performance simply by running on Classy,” Chisholm adds. “ Why shouldn’t social enterprises have access to world-class tools that are tailored to their specialized needs? Nonprofits need to run efficient and sustainable operations if they’re going to be effective at solving a big social problem,” Chisholm concludes.
