"The Readers from Funraise are fantastic. Not only are they simple to use and come along with amazing customer support, but having the option to take credit cards at our in-person events has opened up a new stream of creative fundraising for us."
Todd Hiestand, Associate Director of Development Compassion First
"When people saw their donations and names update live on the screen, it created an experience everyone wanted to be a part of.
