What Does the Classy DonorDock Integration Do?

The Classy & DonorDock integration allows your organization to send information from your Classy account to DonorDock, without manual data entry, and without the need to set up a Zapier connection between the two.

Together, Classy and DonorDock provide fundraising, marketing, and CRM for nonprofits in one integrated solution.

If you don't know, Classy is a giving experience platform that enables nonprofits to connect with supporters through online fundraising. DonorDock is a nonprofit CRM and marketing suite that helps organize all your fundraising communication in one place, and includes emails, receipting, reports, and more.

For Classy Users Who Don't Yet Use DonorDock:

Classy is a powerful fundraising platform, but long-term donor relationships and marketing efforts require a system for organizing contacts and relationships in one central location. That's where DonorDock comes in.

DonorDock organizes all your communication with donors, including emails, newsletters, meetings, events, and more. DonorDock is one of the most popular software tools for small nonprofits because it is easy to use, includes time saving features, and is affordable for nonprofits who don't have unlimited funds to spend on software.
