Kids get cancer too, a fact The Pablove Foundation knows all too well. Formed by two parents who lost their young son Pablo to a rare form of pediatric cancer, the Pablove Foundation is dedicated to fighting childhood cancer with love. The organization supports innovative cancer research, educates and empowers cancer families, and provides music and arts programs for children battling the disease.
To fund this vision born of love and loss, the Pablove Foundation recently sought the help of StayClassy's comprehensive fundraising solution. With events ranging from the truly avant-garde (a cycling event across America) to the more traditional (a golf tournament), it was clear that the Pablove Foundation needed the most versatile event management platform out there.

"StayClassy makes my job easier! Our ticketing and fundraising needs are very diverse, and StayClassy can handle it all. Their staff is incredibly supportive too!"
Pablove uses the full range of StayClassy's event management resources, from selling and managing registrations to providing attendees with the fundraising tools they need to succeed. Each different event requires specific software capabilities. For Pablove Across America, the foundation uses StayClassy to collect and manage registrations, accept event waivers, and have participants set up personal fundraising pages. These pages provide the cyclists with easy-to-use tools for spreading the word and accepting online donations on behalf of Pablove. For its kids biking event, Pedaling for Pablove, participants collect donations through their personal fundraising pages and when they've raised the designated amount, they automatically get an e-ticket to the event. And for its golf event, Pablove uses StayClassy to power its online event page for the tournament, and to sell registrations to single golfers and teams.
With such a wide array of events, Pablove needs an events platform that can handle each type of fundraising scenario, while also providing a seamless user-experience for fundraisers & donors.
StayClassy's focus on flexibility and user experience helped motivate Pablove's recent decision to switch over all of its events from Blackbaud's e-Tapestry. Pablove now has the versatility and branded website integration it needs, without having to spend a ton of money on different products. The decision is already paying off, with over $80,000 raised in a short amount of time. But Pablove certainly isn't stopping there; the organization expects to raise over $500,000 from the events it conducts this year alone!
