What Our Clients Say


"When it came time to plan Canterbury Choral Society's First Annual Masquerade Ball, one of our co-chairs said she'd attended a charity fundraiser that used Greater Giving services. We decided to look into it. Now we're the ones telling other nonprofits that if they really want to have a successful fundraiser, Greater Giving is a necessity! We used Greater Giving's solutions to track all attendees and donations, items donated for the auction, winning bids, table seating arrangements, check-out, payments, and to generate thank you letters. The funding generated was beyond that of any other fundraiser ever conducted by Canterbury. We're confident that with Greater Giving, we'll continue to have extraordinary success. Thank you for everything, Greater Giving! We love your service!"

 —Canterbury Choral Society
