The acquisition will create a global leader in modern giving across B2C and B2B, accelerating growth and creating new opportunities to reach more people and organizations across the world. Additionally, it will enhance donors’ ability to discover new causes and organizations to support by providing a personalized and expansive giving experience. For nonprofits, the scale of the combined companies will unlock new opportunities to reach broader audiences and further build relationships with current donors through the addition of new resources and paths for growth.

“GoFundMe’s vision is to be the most helpful place in the world and partnering with Classy enables us to do that in a differentiated way,” said Tim Cadogan, CEO of GoFundMe. “$5 billion in donations was raised on the GoFundMe and Classy platforms in 2021 – together, we can create a uniquely powerful network that connects donors on GoFundMe to nonprofits who use Classy.”

This acquisition will do just that; accelerating our existing velocity and providing opportunities to expand into new offerings, including workplace giving and donor acquisition,” said Christopher Himes, Classy CEO. “By leveraging the power and scale of the GoFundMe network, we can open doors to connect individuals giving to a GoFundMe campaign with the nonprofit organizations addressing the root cause driving the need. This is an opportunity that could change our industry in a way that has never been done before.”
