Last year, we saw more and more organizations use custom Classy page elements —like sidebars, impact bars, and footers —and their own campaign microsites to create richer donor experiences. This uptick in customizations demonstrates that organizations want to tell their story, their way. While Classy has enabled organizations to do so through custom page elements, the results are restricted by our current campaign page layout and require the help of the Customer Success team to implement. To make campaign creation more customizable and easier to self-serve, our engineers are rebuilding the Classy application from the ground up, starting with the new Crowdfunding Campaign & Builder.
