We've worked with over 400 organizations to date. Here is what a few of our past clients have to say about GoGo Photo Contest:
"We came upon GoGo Photo Contest in 2015 when searching for a new platform to run our annual Calendar Contest. What immediately stood out for us was the phenomenal customer service we received from our very first inquiry.
Since then, and several contests later, they remain committed to helping us reach our goals and by year two, we doubled our original fundraising goal!
Want to change something up or try something new? They’re promptly on it and always with cheerful, optimistic dispositions. We love working with this company!
- Danielle Sharp, Officer, Annual Giving, BC SPCA 2015
"GoGo Photo Contest has given a substantial boost to our national fundraising efforts.
Our annual photo contest has produced new record results each year. I attribute this to GoGo's engaging layout and responsive code, which makes it easy for participants to stay up-to-date on the latest results. We'll definitely be using GoGo again this year, and I highly recommend them to any animal rescue organization contemplating a photo contest fundraiser."
- Thomas Pletcher, IT Director and Co-Founder, National Great Pyrenees Rescue, Inc. 2015
"The AWLA has used GoGoPhotoContest.com for our annual pet photo contest for three consecutive years.
The platform is attractive, easy to use, and the GoGo team has always been courteous and responsive to any issues that arise. The pet photo contest is one of the AWLA's biggest fundraising events, and thanks to the improvements that GoGo has made with every upgrade, we continue to exceed our fundraising goals every year."
- Megan Webb, Executive Director, Animal Welfare League of Alexandria 2014
"Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA has been using Gogophoto contest for 2 years now, and we love it!
When I originally started our first contest, I set our fundraising goal at $5,000, quickly after we launched the contest our vote donations quickly surpassed this goal and we raised over $10,000 for our shelter animals. The best part is, its super easy to use and if you have any question the Gogo staff are always there to help you! Our donors love it too, because it’s a different and unique way to donate to our shelter and it makes donating fun and easy! PHS/SPCA plans to use Gogo every year to host this contest!"
- Nova Maldonado, Special Events Coordinator, Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA 2016
"We'd been running our calendar photo contest for a few years with some success, but collecting the photos, setting up local judging panels, staying organized and on top of it all was a growing annual headache.
Once we discovered GoGo Photo Contest's service, it seemed a natural direction to go, and not just for the ease and organization, but for the engagement of the community on a larger scale. It was a great decision! Between entries and votes, our end result is terrific ... Last year we set what we thought was a outrageous, out-of-reach goal, but we made it and then some. (Plus, a big shout out to Jason's customer service – always quick responses, great counseling and problem solving.)"
- Will Spearman, Director of Marketing, Idaho Humane Society 2015
"GoGo Photo Contest makes setting up a great looking donate-to-vote fundraising page extremely simple.
The GoGo team is very responsive and easy to work with and our supporters absolutely loved the concept. We were able to hit our fundraising goal and even exceeded it the following year. Thanks GoGo!"
- Miles Karp, Development - Events Associate at Bread & Roses Presents Oakland A's
| San Francisco Giants
"Before our non-profit animal rescue organization discovered GoGo, our annual Glamour Puss Photo Contest was a massive undertaking that took lots of time and effort to run smoothly. This year's contest marks our third year of using GoGo and we could not be happier with the results!
The set-up process is very simple and GoGo's support is always quick to respond to any questions we have. Each contest has run perfectly from beginning to end with no hiccups. We feel very confident recommending their service. Thanks GoGo!"
- Jan Rich, President and Founder, For the Love of Cats 2015
"I learned of Go Go Photo Contest through our volunteers as they were beginning to plan a calendar fundraiser when I first arrived at MCHS.
Having been part of calendar fundraisers before, I have found that Go Go provides the most user friendly process I have experienced. Just as importantly, their customer service is great! Their staff are helpful, knowledgeable, and get back to me right away whenever I need assistance or advice, and it all resulted in fundraisers that exceeded our expectations. I plan to continue using Go Go Photo Contest for more successful fundraisers in the future.”
- Chuck Tourtillott, Executive Director, Mendocino Coast Humane Society 2015
"I highly recommend Go Go Photo Contest when wanting to use an online photo fundraiser.
They were so easy to work with and the web page they created for us was professional and user-friendly. We will most certainly be using them again!”
- Caitlin Reese, Outreach Manager at Ark-Valley Humane Society 2016
"When we learned about GoGo Photo, we instantly knew that it would be a fun way to engage with past adopters and raise funds to save more cats and dogs.
The set up of the contest was so easy and the GoGo Photo team was there every step of the way. It was awesome how quick their response was and how thorough they were in answering all of our questions. We look forward to our annual calendar fundraiser every year and we know that we can depend on GoGo Photo to help us make it a success.”
- Erika Mullins, Marketing and Events Manager, San Antonio Pets Alive 2015

We love the system and will definitely use this for our fundraiser this year. Thanks GoGo Team!
- Christina Durham, Operations Director, Alley Cat Advocates View Contest
"Partnering with GoGo Photo Contest made our calendar photo contest fundraiser seamless, easy, and fun.

- Britnee King, Brand & Content Manager, Humane Society of Indianapolis View Contest
"New Fairfield Sherman Animal Welfare Society started running the photo contest a few years back.
I was rather apprehensive, as this was my first fundraising event. Jason was wonderful, and walked me through the whole process step by step. This contest has become one of our most popular fundraisers. Easy for us and fun for our participants!”
- Suzanne Glynn, Board of Directors, New Fairfield Sherman Animal Welfare Society 2014
"I have nothing but the highest praise for the support I get through Gogo Photo Contest and the sturdiness of their platform
. We run an annual fundraising photo contest that raises donations directly for our animal welfare partners. We have never had a contest that has had so few issues. During set up, the Gogo team was incredibly responsive to the customizations that we needed in order to make this more successful than it has ever been. In 2014, we raised over $120K for our animal welfare partners and garnered some amazing photos that will be used for our 2015 calendar. When you speak to Jason and Stevie (our account team), you have no doubt that we are all on the same team, working together to save lives. Their enthusiasm is contagious. We would not even consider using another vendor for this contest."
- Kim Smith, Senior Web and Community Manager, Petco Foundation View Contest
"WOW! Voices in the Dark Animal Rescue wants to send a HUGE THANK you to GoGo Photo Contest.
Every year, we hold our Pet Pin Up Contest, usually with about 30 entries. For some reason this year it was extremely popular and we had 1K+ submissions. It was unrealistic to vote on all the photos via Facebook, so we came to GoGo for an easier way for our participants to vote and share their pet. We were in a huge time crunch, but Jason was able to get our contest page up and running in just 48 hours. The contest was a HUGE success. Our goal was $3,000, which we MORE than doubled! We raised $7,115, making it our most successful fundraiser to date! From the Admin's side, the website is SO easy to use and you can modify pretty much any aspect that you'd like - from the content, to the timeframe of the contest, to entry/voting fees, just about everything! We will definitely be using GoGo for future fundraisers!"
- Courtney Smith, Co-Founder/Executive Director, Voices in the Dark Animal Rescue View Contest
"We are delighted with the results of our first contest.
It was a breeze to setup and manage and a great fun for our community. When a few glitches occurred, the GOGO team was responsive and effective. This will definitely be an annual event for us."
- Michael Ayers, President, Northern California Weimaraner Rescue View Contest
"WOW! Thank you so much for helping WRS run our calendar contest this year
. It was a complete and total success. We are so pleased with everything! We raised more money than ever with almost no stress on our part. It was a fantastic experience! I'm sure I'll have some questions for you as we wrap things up, but right now it's way past my bedtime and I'm just over the moon at how successful this was. THANK YOU!!!"
- Betsy Bottomley, Weimaraner Rescue of the South 2015
"For our annual photo contest, we were looking for a contest platform that would be easy for our constituents to use, provided good reporting and didn't take a lot of manual oversight
. The GoGo Photo Contest platform provided all that along with exceptional customer service. We had one of our best contest years yet! The feedback on our contest was all positive, we raised 35% more than our goal and received more entries than the previous year. We are extremely pleased with the platform and service and can't wait to work with GoGo Photo Contest team on next year's contest."
- Stephanie McVicker, Marketing Technology Specialist, Dumb Friends League 2014

. We are just a few weeks into taking entries, but we are already on track to have our biggest year ever!"
-Jennifer Hessley, Dachshund Rescue South Florida 2014
"The Sacramento SPCA used GoGo Photo Contest for our annual calendar contest and it was our most successful contest to date

Thanks GoGo for supporting rescues!"

- Peyton Taylor, G.R.E.A.T. Rescue of NE FL, Inc. View Contest
"The GoGo Photo Contest far exceeded our expectations of donations to Taysia Blue Rescue
! With very little up front work on our end, animal lovers did the marketing for us. We were shocked at the last minute bidding wars going on to crown our winner. We offered an amazing custom oil portrait from a regional artist as our grand prize which was very coveted and helped drive the votes / donations. We also offered a 'goodie' package for the top six so people felt like they were winning something.
- Jackie Roach, President - Taysia Blue Rescue, Inc. View Contest
"We did pretty well for a first-year event that we put up by the seat of our pants
! Jason and Stevie were very helpful in getting everything set up, and now that it's all been done once, set up will be super easy next time! It was a lot of fun and we'll definitely be doing it again!"
- Monica Gardner, Operations Manager, Humane Society of Waupaca County View Contest

- Edwin Rodriguez Jr., Chautauqua County Humane Society 2014
"We have tried a few calendar contest platforms in the past and we always ended up frustrated.
When we found GoGo Photo Contest, we were amazed at how easy the team was to work with, how quickly our site was set up, and the ease of use for our contest supporters. Though the fees were higher than previous contests, we still had our biggest calendar fundraiser to date! We cannot wait to see what our next contest brings in."
- Kelly, Doberman Rescue Minnesota View Contest
"We have run a couple calendar photo contests for our cat rescue group through GoGo and have found them to be easy and pleasant to work with.
They have consistently provided support and guidance and answered our questions promptly. Our calendar contests have been a financial success and we hope to continue to partner with GoGo in making this fundraiser an annual event."

-Tara Shepherd, Blind Dog Rescue Alliance 2014
"SSRR had great success with our GoGo Fundraiser
. Participants enjoyed the "competition" for the most liked photo.

They went above and beyond to make this a successful fundraiser!"

As far as I could tell, the interface with entrants, donors, and depositing funds was seamless and we did not hear any complaints. Everything worked just the way it was supposed to, the site looked professional, and if we decide to run another photo contest we will definitely use GoGo."
-Gretchen Meyer, Heartland Greyhound Adoption View Contest
"I would like to say that using GoGo Photo Contest was one of our more lucrative fundraising efforts
. We are a very small rescue and it is difficult for us to manage larger fundraisers on our own. Your staff was so helpful in setting us up, and the whole process was a lot of fun. We plan to use GoGo Photo Contest again in the near future."
-Lori Harbison, Rescue Ohio English Bulldogs 2013
"We operate a small animal rescue in rural Tennessee
. Finding beneficial fundraisers has always been a difficult and ongoing process for us. Thanks to the GoGo Photo Contest, we were able to raise our goal for heartworm treatments, and a little extra! The support we received in setting up and running the contest was fabulous. It took no time at all for us to be up and running. Thank you so much to all the great people who helped us out!"
