"MCSC has been using GiftTool for over 7 years and they are the best! The support staff is
amazing and always there if we ever need anything. The donation page alone is fantastic! The
donors can trust putting their sensitive information in and they receive a tax receipt right
away. This alone saves us a lot of time and it is so easy to use . They have helped us set up
major events for here in Calgary as well as pledge sheets for a walk in another province. I
highly recommend GiftTool for any charity."
- B.M., Manager of Internal Projects, Missing Children Society of Canada
"Simple to use, always reliable, awesome fast response to any questions or support request
that our charity has. Our online donation system is critical for the support of our food banks,
as well as to the reputation of the sponsors that we partner with. Without exception, our online
donations run smoothly and professionally even during annual telethons when donation volume is
extremely high. Tax receipts are generated automatically and fully comply with CRA standards.
When a donor misplaces their receipt, we can re-issue with one click in moments. We would
recommend Gift Tool to any charity that wants an excellent and effective online donation system."
- L.L., Executive Director, Food Banks BC
"With most large corporations that I’ve dealt with in my 34 years as a non-profit Director and
Family Therapist, I have encountered frustration and anxiety when there was an issue that needed
to be addressed. GiftTool is different. But that is almost entirely due to the efforts of one
terrific woman who is always ready to help. She patiently listens to your issue and slowly and
methodically walks you through each step you need to take. She tailors each teaching session to
your own skills and remembers you and helps when you call back and need more help. You are a
treasure; thank you Hannah!"
- Dr. A. S., Executive Director, Shalom Task Force
Wellspring Edmonton recently had the opportunity to join an ongoing third-party fundraising event
for which we needed the ability to take and track pledges. Our sister organization, Wellspring Calgary,
recommended GiftTool’s Pledge-a-thon service. For a modest fee, we added this service to the menu of
services we already have with GiftTool. With the excellent customer service we have come to expect
from GiftTool Support, we mimicked the Calgary pledge page and were ready to receive pledges in a
very short time. Although we had few Edmonton riders in this first Tour du Cancervive, they were
enthusiastically supported by many friends and family. What would have been an administrative burden
to handle manually was a breeze using the Pledge-a-thon infrastructure. We’re fans of GiftTool.
- D. G., Acting Executive Director, Wellspring Edmonton
"GiftTool is amazing! With all of the stresses involved with organizing a
big charitable event, the last thing we wanted to do was worry about our donation
system. GiftTool took the time to understand our company's needs. Their service
representatives are polite, intelligent, and prompt. I haven't had to give GiftTool
much thought, and I wouldn't have it any other way! Thank you for helping us give
back to our community."
- R. F., IT Department, Royal LePage ProAlliance Realty Corporation
"We have been so pleased with GiftTool's flexible donation reporting and it's
top-notch customer service. As a small charitable organization, we have limited
in-house resources to maximize our online donation program. GiftTool coordinated
our donation site and provided training and timely user advice that is helping us make
the most of its services. Thank you."
- H. T., Secretary, North Shore Hospice Society
"We love GiftTool - the product and the people who stand behind it!! We presented our
first national fundraising event in 2009 using Pledge-a-thon and our experience was excellent.
Our participants found registration simple and straightforward. Our donors could contribute
quickly and easily. And, back at the office, we managed reports, accounting and the overall
management with no hassles. The solution is intuitive and the ability to customize and change
our messages as we continue to grow is a welcomed additional benefit. And, we truly appreciated
the support and service provided by GiftTool staff which is always first rate. Our on-line donations
and charitable event are growing significantly this year and we are confident that GiftTool will
get us to the next stage of development."
- M. L., Project Manager, Canadian Digestive Health Foundation
"It was a delight to work with all of you and our event was enormously successful. We
netted over $61,000 which we found amazing as it was our first event and recognizing the
state of the economy at this time. I think it is about people and their dogs…….nothing is
too good for our dogs."
- M. M., Director of Development, New Rochelle Humane Society
"Our e-commerce solutions are about more than just branding; we want every interaction
with the external world to be perfect. With GiftTool, alumni can always expect to be served
in the same efficient, professional manner. We work with a lot of suppliers, but no one is
as responsive and customer-focused as GiftTool .
- Executive Director, Advancement, Richard Ivey School of Business
"As a hosted solution, the system was very easy to deploy. We were live within a week."
- J. W., Business Analyst, Richard Ivey School of Business
"Our partnership with GiftTool has revolutionized our ability to cost-effectively
process online donations, as well as enabling us to initiate an online pledge-a-thon that takes
place in Canada, the US, Austalia and Europe on the same day each year. GiftTool's services made
this global event a huge success, raising almost $250,000 in just one day! The result…even more
resources that bring love, hope and opportunity to China's abandoned and disabled children."
- D. G., Executive Director, International China Concern
"Using GiftTool for our online donations has worked extremely well. The set up was straightforward. I can easily customize my messages to make our website and donation thank-you emails look fresh on an ongoing basis. In fact, GiftTool paid for itself within the first month.
The last week in December is a pressure time for our donors to get their donations to us in time
for tax purposes. Having an easy-to-use, reliable online donation capability made the usual year-end
crunch very simple for our donors -and for us!"
- D. M., Donor Relations Manager, Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation
"We held our Annual Family Fun Walk/Run yesterday and it was a great success. When everything is
tallied up, I believe we will exceed our target of $70,000. Thanks so much for your help with the
website. It really improved the registration process and increased the amount of pledges collected.
We received so many positive comments on the web page and online registration over the last few weeks
and I wanted to make sure to let you know."
- J. D., Executive Director, Allies for Autism Foundation
"Our experience with GiftTool was very positive. We were able to quickly and, more importantly,
very easily, set up a student profile survey for completion by students attending our member schools.
We emailed the link from our website and conducted over 2,000 surveys in both English and French. The
reports that the GiftTool software created were simple to produce and allowed us to cross-tabulate the
data. The level of support was great, and I would recommend GiftTool's services to our membership."

"GiftTool has been a powerful enabler for Vic-Maui of increased revenue, streamlined payment
processing and efficient administration."
