I found [the website] very user friendly: easy to use, easy to understand and navigate. Having set up similar interactive fundraising initiatives in the past, I found Visufund excellent and took all the ‘back office’ work off me (eg. adding people’s personal messages to the website). I would definitely recommend Visufund.
Elizabeth Palfreman - Head of Fundraising, St John's Hospice
Our lovely tree raised twice what we expected first year out. Thank you, would definitely recommend. The service was faultless.
Jez McCarthy - Vice Chair, Farndon Residents Environment Group
Just wanted to pass on our thanks for all the support to get up and running. You helped us achieve our best ever year of fund raising.
I look forward to running future campaigns on the site.

I have been using Visufund since stumbling across them back in 2017. From the start, everything just clicked into place and Visufund is now one of our staple suppliers for our dedications that support our annual events and activities. They are awesome - nothing is too much trouble, and they work hard to interpret our ideas and bring them to life. It’s like having an extension to our existing digital creative team. I really can’t recommend them enough.

We're a reasonable small non profit with no IT staff and were looking for ways to increase our presence and donations during this Corona pandemic. You people came to the rescue.
Your Holiday Tree selection was just what we were looking for. After spending a few minutes reviewing the options we selected the one that made the most sense for our group. The initial set up was easy and very "non-technical". The ability to tailor your design to our specific needs was just what we were looking for and the response from the public has been terrific.
The tree is very easy to use and you've answered all our questions in the initial design. The addition of the pictures and comments and allowing visitors to review all the decorations with the "Tour" view will keep people coming back.
From an administrative perspective, working with you and Stripe has been easy, seamless and professional. Money is deposited into our account frequently without any difficulties and the reporting information is just what we were hoping for. All of our questions and concerns were addressed to our satisfaction in a timely, professional and competent fashion.
If we were rating this site it would be 5+ Stars in our book.

I love Visufund! We only recently joined the site but have been so impressed with how easy it is to set up a page and how enjoyable it makes the whole giving process. We know that our supporters want to make a positive difference in the world and with this platform they can support our cause in an easy and fun way.
Kia Newland - Marketing & Communications Officer, Nottinghamshire Hospice
From initially registering the hospice on Visufund and creating a Stripe account to setting up our first page, I found the process nice and simple. The Light Up a Life tree went down really well with supporters and I’m really pleased to say that the average donation amount was up 61% compared to our online donations in the previous year.
We have been absolutely DELIGHTED with the incredible service of Visufund! The support was brilliant and the platform was nice and straightforward to use! We were thrilled with how well our first online giving campaign with Visufund was received by both current and new supporters and will definitely be using Visufund again in the future. We are delighted with how much money we raised through our campaign and it was such a lovely way to give the charity exposure online over the festive season too! Thank you!

The Visufund platform enabled the Huntington's Disease Association to run a hugely successful Christmas in memory campaign, that gave the HD community a special and personal way to pay tribute to their lost loved ones.
Visufund's straightforward functionality made administering the page and donations incredibly simple and we were able to chart progress against our target. I would not hesitate to recommend Visufund and the team.
Kate Davis - Head of Fundraising, Huntington's Disease Association
We have had a successful Christmas campaign this year thanks to Visufund! As a relatively small charity, with fundraisers spread across the UK and in NZ, Visufund has been a valuable tool and a place where bereaved families can come together to remember their loved ones, leaving a donation in their memory.
The team were really friendly, supportive and helpful when it came to developing our unique page, giving advice about both technical and design elements of the site. The back end of the site was simple and easy to customise and we were quickly able to access data, enabling us to thank our donors for their contribution.
We are already looking forward to next year’s campaign!
Joe Fenton – Community Fundraiser, Brake, the road safety charity
We were looking for a way to update our Christmas fundraising appeal, to make it more accessible to a wider audience and increase our digital engagement levels. Working with the team at Visufund and our own in-house designers, we were able to launch a completely bespoke webpage that matched our internal brand guidelines and style. Having never done a campaign like this before, we were absolutely delighted with the results. In the space of 4 months, we raised more than four times as much as we had raised the previous year through online donations to this appeal. We attracted so many new donors - we couldn't believe it!
