Looking for a budget-friendly alternative to Benevity? See how Millie stacks up on all features: easy-to-use interface, donate to over 1.7 million nonprofits, give globally, match donations, volunteer with your teams, and track it all on one platform. We'll breakdown some differences:
Benevity is great, they’re helping some of the world’s largest businesses around employee engagement and CSR.
But if you're not a Fortune 500 company, you'll likely prioritize a clean and simple user interface, fast implementation time, and making sure it fits within budget—all of which are super important to us at Millie.
We know company size shouldn't be a factor in your ability to give back with their employees. Companies of any size should still have a way to give back, engage employees, and have an impact on the world around us. It's not just Benevity's focus on larger enterprises that may not make them the right choice for you. Depending on the functionality you're looking for in an employee engagement, CSR, and workplace giving software, Millie's platform could be the right Benevity alternative product for you.
Although our product is created with corporate social responsibility, community investment, and employee engagement in mind, we still want the experience of logging in and using Millie to be delightful.
Due to the nature of Benevity being an older company, their user interface can be a harder-to-use software solution.
At Millie, our founding team comes from the design and social innovation space. Intuitive, beautiful design is kind of our thing. From admins setting up fundraising campaigns to employees setting up donations and nonprofits claiming their profiles in our database of organizations, every stakeholder in your Millie ecosytem will experience a streamlined and user friendly workflow.
As we mentioned in the beginning, Benevity was created for the world's largest businesses, and their pricing reflects that. For their giving and volunteering management system, customers often pay upwards of $100,000+ annually. This is a price that's not always in every company's budget, especially those newer to corporate giving and corporate purpose programs, or smaller companies with a more realistic overall budget.
For fun, impactful, all-in-one workplace giving for all, Millie has you covered. And on budget.
From employee engagement functionality like donation matching and company volunteering to fundraising campaigns and charitable gifting, and a database of local nonprofit organizations near you, every company can leave a lasting impact with Millie…
For a quarter of the price.
Millie also does not take any portion of donations processed through our system. Credit card fees still get taken by Stripe (2.2% + 30 cents) like they do on the nonprofit's website. Benevity does take a volume-based charity support fee that they deduct from the donation when the funds are distributed to the charity.
This generally will not affect how much you pay for a platform but instead the breadth of your overall impact.
Part of Millie that is unique when you're looking for Benevity alternatives is our charitable gifting functionality.
With Benevity's API you can dream up, build, and piece together your own charitable gifting through their platform, but with Millie gifting is built in!
You can leverage our campaigns to allocate budget for celebrations, employee birthdays, and work milestones. You can also enable your sales and customer success teams to send charitable gift cards to prospects and customers.
Marketing teams can also leverage charitable gifting for sponsorship or webinar opportunities, offering charitable gift cards for the first few registrants of an event can help incentivize participation of your marketing efforts. Plus with automation coming soon, you will be able to automatically send a charitable gift to an employee or customer to celebrate a milestone or birthday!
Because of the clunkiness of Benevity, it can take months to get your employee engagement programs off the ground.
Setup for Millie takes about 30 minutes and we'll walk you through the whole thing.
From connecting with our database of 1.7 million nonprofits to getting up your first virtual volunteering event, you'll be ready to start making an impact quickly with Millie.
Here at Millie, we're passionate about connecting you with your employees and your community through easy, impactful workplace giving. We're here to help businesses of all shapes, sizes, and budgets through our flexible SaaS based pricing that allows you to pay for what you need, with no upfront costs or donation-volume fees.
With functionality like gifting you can connect not only with your internal team to drive employee engagement, but start incorporate gifting into your entire business operations, helping your broader customer-base understand the impact of corporate social responsibility.
We're a small team passionate about social impact that is excited to help you operationalize, launch, or scale your CSR or social impact program!
And it should also be noted that we are big fans of Benevity, and if you're a Fortune 500 company, we'll probably send you their way 😉😎
