Online Fundraising for the Modern Nonprofit

Classy creates world-class online fundraising software for nonprofits, modernizing the giving experience to accelerate social impact around the world. Based in San Diego, CA, Classy is trusted by organizations of all sizes, from the fastest-growing nonprofits to some of the world’s largest social organizations. Classy entered its 10th anniversary year by announcing that their nonprofit customers collectively raised over $1 billion in 2020, fueling social impact through a wide variety of causes including COVID-19 relief and social justice. Classy was born out of the desire to do fundraising differently when co-founder Scot Chisholm and a group of friends wanted to raise money for cancer research in honor of Chisholm’s mother, who was a two-time breast cancer survivor. What started as a pub crawl to raise funds for the American Cancer Society soon turned into dozens.
