Crowdsourcing for Nonprofits Part 2: Causevox.com

Web version

The best thing about CauseVox.com is its customization.
The worst thing about CauseVox.com is the server speed.

If you want a page that looks like your own and has blog-like updates, this is for you. The styling is fully customizable, an optional free trial is available until you reach $5,000 in donations and most features are unlocked in the free version. Custom URLs are welcomed! The downside is the system itself. Slower connections may wait a long time for the page to load. The system also has a learning curve, so non-tech-savvy people beware!
