Setting up a Network for Good page is relatively easy and painless. For small NPOs, this is particularly helpful.
The platform is very limited and not flexible to accommodate specific needs for a given NPO. Furthermore, the sales video is a bit of a bait-and-switch: the promises in that video are for the premium package only, but that was not clear when my director of development watched it and signed up.
Network for Good is a great site for NPOs that have a straightforward donation system. In our case, we offer a whole lot of different programs, some of which require a low processing fee ($35-$50). While customer service assured us that we would be able to set up a second "campaign" to collect those fees, the template would not allow any changes, so people trying to pay the processing fees were confused by all the donation language. We tried it for a few months and decided to go back to Greater Giving for our processing fee system, which means we are running on two platforms.
For our big annual fundraiser, we wanted to set up a temporary campaign (three months) to allow for those specific 4-6 figure donations, but we would have had to pay for an entire year of service for that page. This made the cost untenable.
So, do your homework, ask a ton of questions. Network for Good may be the right fit for you!
We opted for Network for Good to get a modern, stylish donation page that made it easy on donors and also easier for our very small staff to receive online donations.
