cheddar up user testimonial

As a brand new organization, Cheddar Up gave us a way to accept donations that was easy for new volunteers to manage and trusted by donors. We love the cheerful and intuitive interface and appreciated being able to “start simple” and then add additional features as we gain confidence. Cheddar Up will definitely be a tool we use for years to come!
