Vern Henricks, President & CEO - Greater Manhattan Community Foundation, Manhattan, KS

"The Evergreen giving day platform may be the most efficient, informative and effective giving day software on the market. It is attractive, informative and cost effective. After using a more costly giving day platform the first year, we decided to try Evergreen and found it to be 10 times more efficient for one-tenth of the cost. This is an easy decision for us each year."

Jessica L. Martin, President & Executive Director - Greater Salina Community Foundation,
Salina, KS

"This will be our eighth year for our giving day and our third year working with Evergreen. The experience we had using other giving platforms compared to Evergreen is night and day. Evergreen has made our giving day more user friendly and efficient to process in our office. Their excellent customer service has made the experience even more enjoyable. If you are trying to decide between software companies for your giving day, I wouldn't think twice about using Evergreen!"
Testimonial

Christian Maher, Executive Director - Crawford Heritage Community Foundation,
Meadville , PA

"When we decided to create Crawford Gives, our greatest concern was about what company we would partner with to create our web presence. We wanted a product that would be easy to use by our staff and donors. An intuitive and user-friendly interface was important too. We also wanted to make sure the product would stand up to the traffic we generated. And, we didn't want to spend our entire budget on technology so that we could provide a greater amount of money to our nonprofit organizations. Evergreen provided us with a cost-effective solution that provided all the features we needed. Our inaugural Crawford Gives was a bigger success than expected and the site performed as promised. We received many compliments from donors about how simple it was to make a gift. We're excited to work with Evergreen again next year!"

Amy Owen, President/CEO - , Community Foundation for Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties, VA

"Five years into our Giving Day, we've worked with a total of three platforms. Evergreen, by far, has the greatest ROI, personalized support, and tech-savvy service. Our donors and nonprofits were really energized by our campaign this year. I loved the added administrative controls we had on the platform, intuitive set up, and easy integration into our accounting software (FIMS). Evergreen is the platform we'll stick with and grow with."
Testimonial

Elizabeth Weese, Executive Director - The Community Foundation of Dickinson County, Abilene, KS

"As the new Executive Director of the foundation planning our first match day, to say I was slightly apprehensive is an understatement. The staff of Evergreen Giving Solutions not only alleviated all my fears but were there every step of the way. The Giving Day platform was straightforward to implement and learn. The participating non-profits enjoyed the ability to upload their pertinent information, giving reports are readily available and easy to export, but the most exciting part was watching the donations figures continue to climb in real-time. I can't thank Evergreen Giving Solutions, and especially Brian Tesene, enough for making our first match day a tremendous success."

Leslie Scoby, Affiliate Coordinator - Greater Sabetha Community Foundation, Sabetha, KS

"Evergreen's quality work for our 9 month old community foundation enabled us to implement our first giving day. The website, professional and visually impressive, provided an easy to use online donation platform. I believe Evergreen's expertise and website enabled a town of 2500 people to donate over $132,000 t0 20 funds in 24 hours. We expect an even bigger giving day next year and with Evengreen, it will be possible!"

Elaine Dhuyvetter, Vice President, Marketing & Programs - Greater Manhattan Community Foundation, Manhattan, KS

"Evergreen has done a great job with their giving day platform! It's very user friendly and easy for donors to make their gift to multiple organizations with only one online credit card entry, and they immediately receive a receipt via email. Also, the leaderboard keeps an up-to-the-minute tally so participants can see how much they have raised at any time throughout the day. I highly recommend Evergreen."

Anne Allen, Executive Director - Parsons Area Community Foundation,
Parsons, KS

"The Parsons Area Community Foundation hosted its second Match Day on Giving Tuesday November 28, 2017. This year in October, with little time to spare, we enlisted Brian Tesene of Evergreen Giving Day Solutions to build a customized Giving Tuesday website for us: pacfgivingtuesday.com. Brian worked tirelessly to go the extra mile to ensure all parts of the website worked seamlessly and was ready to go in time for the big day. We even added an Early Bird giving feature for people unable to come in person to give online prior to the event. On Giving Tuesday we had three laptops set up for staff and board members to input donations. A 4th laptop was connected to a TV monitor showing the Leaderboard. Donors and representatives from the agencies involved were glued to this monitor! Periodically it was refreshed to show the latest donations and this truly added to the fun and excitement of the day."

"There are numerable features to this website that took this event to a higher level of professionalism. All donor information is stored for the administrator and can be exported to a spreadsheet. Donors providing email addresses received immediate receipts, and it is a simple process to search for specific donors to pull up their history. Rather than listing all the other features we found so helpful, for any other organization considering enlisting Evergreen Giving Day Solutions, I would be happy to serve as a reference and visit with you by phone or by email. Please contact me through PACF's website: parsonsareacf.org."

Jeff Crist, President - Marysville Community Foundation,
Marysville, KS

"This thank you note from myself and the entire board at the Marysville Community Foundation is long overdue. Working with your company the past 3 years has been fantastic. Our Pony Up Marysville match day has been a HUGE success. Your website is exceptional. It is very user friendly which is a must as there isn't time for a learning curve on match day. It is an easy site to access and navigate. In addition the reporting features are fantastic. Very easy to generate reports that provide the data people ask for. Information such as : how much has been donated to each fund ?, how many gifts have been made to each fund ?, overall total number of gifts?, number of online gifts vs number of walk in gifts?, amount of cash gifts vs credit cards ?, the time of day when we received the most gifts?. In addition, the graphics the reports generate (pie charts, etc.) are very helpful."

"Pony Up Marysville match day is an exciting by itself. However, the website takes the day to a whole new level. There is nothing like watching the donation dollars grow thru the website. Your website allows those from our own community as well as those with Marysville ties from across the country track our match day progress. In summary, two thumbs up to your Pony Up Marysville match day website."

Katy Kitchen, Affiliate and Youth Coordinator - Greater Salina Community Foundation,
Salina, KS

"I recently helped organized match days for two of our affiliate foundations (Smoky Hills Charitable Foundation and Community Foundation for Cloud County). Each affiliate has a different process for the day. The match day websites provided by Evergreen Giving Day Solutions were easy to show those affiliate board members how to use. The websites made the day so much easier than in the past. There was also additional excitement because charities could see how they were doing in real time. Thank you Evergreen!"

Susan Weis, Director of Finance - Greater Salina Community Foundation, Salina, KS

"After 5 years of growth on our annual giving day, we needed an affordable solution to cut down on back-end processing staff time. The Evergreen giving day platform was recommended to us by another community foundation and was an investment WELL worth it. Not only was our gift processing time cut down by two-thirds, our donors loved the leaderboard feature, and staff loved how easy it was to use. But perhaps even more impressive is Evergreen's customer service. Any specialized reporting we asked for they provided, and the response time to questions was phenomenal. Already looking forward to next year's giving day!"

"As the finance person at our organization, the Evergreen giving day plaform has made the processing of the gifts easy and efficient. The download from the website is easily uploaded into our fund accounting software."
