Classy partners with organizations of all sizes, from the fastest-growing nonprofits such as Team Rubicon and Malala Fund, to some of the world’s largest social organizations, such as Acumen Fund, Oxfam, and Shriners Hospitals for Children. Based in San Diego, CA, Classy has raised $53 million to-date in growth capital and is backed by prominent technology investors including JMI Equity, Mithril, Salesforce Ventures, and Bullpen Capital. Classy was selected by Fast Company as one of ''The World's Most Innovative Companies in Social Good,'' and recognized on the ''100 Brilliant Companies'' list by Entrepreneur Magazine.
