Crowdrise vs CauseVox

CauseVox is the decluttered, user-happy, budget friendly alternative to Crowdrise

Switch from Crowdrise to CauseVox and see more results instantly.

Unlike Crowdrise, CauseVox is a super upgrade from what we used previously. What I love about CauseVox is that it puts a lot into my hands with administration, design, and ease, which allows us to get to the important stuff of delivering the mission.

If your fundraising platform is clunky and hard to use, you’ll get minimal results that will absolutely disappoint. You’ll be spending all your time wrangling with tools instead of actually raising funds. Plus, imagine your p2p participants getting frustrated too.

Happy Participants

On average, a 4.4 out of 5.0 rating on user happiness because we make it so easy.

Crowdrise is clunky for participants

Crowdrise has a complex registration process for your peer to peer fundraisers.

  • Fundraisers first create an account on Crowdrise.
  • Then they enter in some basic info like name, photo, and appeal.
  • Then they open up their campaign in a different interface to edit design, content, and more settings.
  • After 15 minutes of setup, they can finally launch their page.

CauseVox makes participants happy

CauseVox has a simple registration process for your peer to peer fundraisers.

  • Fundraisers first create an account on your campaign site. No CauseVox branding.
  • Then they upload a profile photo and enter a name.
  • The rest of their page is pre-filled. Just some speedy easy clicks.

We’ve gone through multiple platforms and CauseVox is by far the most straightforward, easy to use one. The fact that it is user-friendly for both participants and myself as an admin is the most compelling factor.

Comparing the costs

Crowdrise no longer publishes their pricing. You’ll have to contact them and talk to a sales rep in order to receive a quote.

CauseVox is transparent. Our pricing for 99% of users is clearly published on our pricing page.

Based on what customers have told us after switching to CauseVox, we estimate that their Premium Plan is the most like our Plus Plan.

Crowdrise (Premium) Pricing

  • Annual license fee: $5,000 – $6,000 per year
  • Platform fee: 3%
  • Processor Fee: 2.4% + 30 cents

CauseVox (Plus) Pricing

  • Annual license fee: $2,940 per year (or you can go monthly too)
  • Platform fee: 3%
  • Processor Fee: 2.2% + 30 cents

On the starting end, the Crowdrise Essentials Plan is similar to the CauseVox Basic Plan. Both have no monthly or annual fee and incur a 5% platform fee. The processor fee is 2.9% + 30 cents at Crowdrise, but 2.2% + 30 cents at CauseVox.

Pricing Estimate

Based on a $100,000 raise and the numbers above, you would pay 40% more on Crowdrise under their Premium Plan vs the CauseVox Plus Plan.

Based on a $10,000 raise and the numbers above, you would pay 10% more on Crowdrise under their Essentials Plan vs the CauseVox Basic Plan.
