GiftWorks Pricing and Fees

How much does GiftWorks cost? Here’s the breakdown — you do the math.

Frontstream lists their pricing packages based on peer-to-peer, events, auctions and digital fundraising functionality. While this functionality is nice to have, they aren’t offering a true donor management system. Their recommended ‘Panoramo Pro’ package is $600 a year which doesn’t include their transaction fees or any email marketing functionality.
