Quality of Support

I had explored employee giving software solutions in the past, but the price points and implementation timelines and costs just made them unjustifiable. How can I justify spending $40k per year on Benevity when we’re only giving away $100k? It seemed wildly inefficient.

Why are people switching from YourCause to Groundswell?

Lower fees

YourCause charges 3% for their distribution fee and have additional fees that can add up when you least expect it. Groundswell charges just 1%, the lowest in the industry, and never charges ad hoc fees.

Faster distribution

It can take up to 3 months for a match to reach a nonprofit through YourCause. With Groundswell, donations are matched instantly, and 100% of charities receive their funds (both donation and match) within 24 hours.

Easier to use

YourCause is often described as difficult to navigate and manage, leading to significant time spent on administrative tasks. Groundswell was designed with admins in mind.

All-in-one solution

YourCause is not a single platform but a source for several software solutions, each with a different focus. This collection of platforms is clunky and causes frustration for both administrators and employees.

Admin-free payroll

YourCause's payroll giving solution requires dozens of administrative steps each pay period to execute, amounting to hundreds of hours a year for enterprise companies. Groundswell offers admin-free payroll giving.

Less admin

With YourCause, you can expect to deal with multiple monthly invoices, payroll reconciliations, and manual reporting - leading to piles of busy work. Groundswell was built to reduce your admin burdens by 99%.
