This was our first year using DonorDrive for our Polar Plunges; we particularly enjoyed the robust reporting features, which proved helpful as we managed 22 different locations. DonorDrive offered a clean, fresh look that also allowed us to better integrate our brand. Most importantly, it was a very smooth process for our participants and donors–our staff fielded fewer calls from individuals needing assistance.
