Ashlety M
"I have to say, being a non-profit for the past 8 years, this is the best customer service we have received – and we have worked with many different vendors for various events! Her level of responsiveness could not have been better and it exceeded our expectations… We are so glad that we made the switch to use CrowdRise this year and our results were fantastic. Our 8th Annual Race For Grace raised $132,000, which is a new record for us."

Brian K
"It was a great event! Thank for your support! CrowdRise is what I would call THE model company for crowd funding projects! The support was unmatched, the communication was unmatched and I actually felt like the number one priority of CrowdRise was for me to be successful, not to take the money we have raised! Thank you ALL for the work you do! Truly an amazing company filled with amazing team members! Keep kicking ass!"

Craig Rappaport
"Using CrowdRise.com for the Fishing-For-Noah benefit has been an exercise in simplicity. If you are planning a fundraiser I highly recommend this site. Easy to set up, excellent support - by phone with real people, and a great sense of corporate humor that comes through in their email, their swag, and their overall attitude about what they do. A+! This was not a canned or prompted post. I just really like the site."
Craig Rappaport
Michael Mullaley
"​First off, I just want to say that you are amazing, and that everyone here in New York that is part of this program appreciates you. I can't even begin to count all the emails I have sent you, with all the minuscule requests (and with still 3 weeks to go...) and you have remained extremely encouraging, positive, and very helpful. I cannot thank you enough."

Mary Ellen Mancini

"Thanks so much for offering such an amazing promotion! We are able to send more shoebox to children in need now than we thought was possible and my daughter is learning early the value of helping others on a large scale. Will definitely recommend your site to others. ♡"

Jo Hafford
"​Thank you so much for your kind words and offer of assistance. Your mobile site made it easy to keep the family abreast of my progress, so there has been no hand wringing over how will the bills be paid. And seriously, thank you SO much for the fee structure. I've lost as much as 15% on other platforms, and it's a real awkward conversation to have with your donors. CrowdRise eliminated that. Y'all have been a BIG big big help in a way that feels more like a supporter than a vendor, so thanks for being part of the team. Go forth and be awesome."
Jo Hafford
Ross Ellis
"​I also want to thank you and everyone at Crowdrise for your dedication and commitment to helping us. This campaign was a blast! You know I thought St. Jude’s would win, but am beyond thrilled that we did –even though both charities are winners! Can’t thank you enough! I am going to miss the DubSmash Wars! It truly was one of the most fun campaigns we ever participated in! Let’s stay in touch, because I for one feel as though I have a new friend and send you an abundance of gratitude for all of your hard work! Best and thanks."

"Thank you x million to all of you!! This has been our most successful campaign to date and would not have been possible without the dedication and support from Crowdrise and Chance's team. I cannot believe we surpassed the goal by almost $15,000! The power of communities coming together for a common cause never seizes to amaze me.
Looking forward to getting these coats to Chicago!!"

Maureen Griffin
"I am super impressed with the amazingly fast and responsive service provided by Crowdrise via email; and also, incredibly friendly and patient representatives/people. ... I set up a Crowdrise site for the first time in early March for our Los Altos High School Haiti Club students to fundraise for SOPUDEP and was super impressed with Kate and Wes' help with my endless questions. Then just yesterday, in lighting speed Bryn helped with a donor who accidentally set up her own page versus donate on my daughters' page. Seriously, your customer service is a wonderful experience for a company that is probably not a Fortune 500. Whatever you are doing, your reps are a pleasure to deal with.... many american companies and people could learn from you."
Maureen Griffin
Leslie Pinero
"Just wanted to say thank-you SO much for everything you did for us. We loved using Crowdrise. Having you help us so quickly with all of our requests whenever we needed assistance was a lifesaver. This was a great experience and we are so happy to say we've raised over $124K to fight against pediatric/young adult cancer!! #LCCFTK Thank-you!!!"

"I just wanted to tell you how absolutely AWESOME the experience was in working with the CrowdRise team. I first heard about what you all do after listening to a Tim Ferriss podcast interview with Ed Norton and decided to give it a try! Your site is so easy to use, it’s fun, the customer service is absolutely outstanding and ok I am gushing and using a lot of :) A heartfelt thank you to you and your entire team for being AWESOME and allowing so much good to be done in the world. Kudos to you :) Have an awesome day and thank you so much again!"

"Lucy, I can barely articulate into human language how much I love CrowdRise. From top to bottom, you just seem to get everything right. You have an overlying platform and theme with immense depth and universal appeal. At the same time, you focus on all of the little things that too frequently fall through the cracks. I would describe CrowdRise's customer service and support as unparalleled. I have never had a problem that was not alleviated in less time than it takes to even get a response from most places. I just wanted to take a moment to recognize and commend you and your company for the tremendous, positive and beneficial work that you do. I hope you will share my sentiments with your colleagues."

"On behalf of all of the staff volunteers and riders we want to extend our thanks for your support of the inaugural First Cause Ride and of all of the First Responders across BC who are suffering with PTSD and Occupational Stress Injuries. It has been quite the journey to get to this point and we could not have done it without the support of individuals and companies like you! With your support we will continue to raise awareness and the funds needed to develop an early recognition, support and treatment program tailor-made for First Responders and their families. Again thank you for all you have done to make this event a reality! We look forward to sending you some amazing footage of the ride! We are so proud, we are grateful, we are humbled by your efforts. We fully appreciate that we asked a lot of you outside your scope!"
