Gratavid is a tool for collecting & sending personalized video via email & text. Personalized video is a great addition or alternative to the traditional phone call or thank you card.

Use Gratavid to thank donors, share impact, and connect in a personal way. Use Gratavid’s video request feature to collect video testimonials, thank you videos from the board, share impact stories, and/or any videos from your organization.

The Gratavid integration allows you to automatically send Gratavids when a donation is received. Or, create a Gratavid task for high-value gifts or first-time donors. The integration then automatically sends engagement data (video sent, video watched, video reply received) back into Salesforce.

The Gratavid iOS & Android apps make it easy for anyone on your team to record a personalized video regardless of tech-savviness.
