Virtuous Named to Inc 5000 for 2nd Year in a Row

Virtuous recognized for being one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S. on Inc 5000.

Phoenix, Arizona — Aug. 15, 2023 — Virtuous, the fastest-growing nonprofit CRM and category-leading responsive fundraising platform, has been named to the 2023 Inc 5000 list —a select list recognizing the top 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. based on percentage revenue growth. 

This is the second year in a row that Virtuous has been named as a part of this prestigious ranking, experiencing rapid revenue growth—525% since 2019. 

“We are honored by being named to the Inc 5000 annual list. At Virtuous, we believe that generosity has the power to create profound change in the world—and it’s our privilege to equip thousands of nonprofit fundraisers with responsive fundraising software to help them address the world’s most pressing challenges.”

Gabe Cooper
Virtuous Founder and CEO

Since its founding in 2014, Virtuous has become the fastest-growing nonprofit CRM and responsive fundraising platform. Thousands of fundraisers use its software to build better personal relationships with donors and grow giving. The category leader in responsive fundraising, Virtuous is charting a new way for nonprofits of all sizes to better connect with and inspire their supporters.

“Nonprofits provide a critical role in our society. They help address the world’s most pressing issues, and they provide donors and volunteers with opportunities to create a meaningful impact on the issues they care about most,” said Cooper. “But today’s nonprofits are often slowed down by their technology stack and continue to create lackluster experiences for their donors. But the reality is that today’s donors expect a deeper personal connection to their favorite cause. Our brilliant team is innovating our comprehensive solution every day in order to make that vision a reality on behalf of the nonprofits we serve and we’re honored to be named amongst the country’s most successful companies.”

Inc. 5000 companies added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years. Those metrics add up to a lot of very determined entrepreneurs looking for solutions to the biggest problems facing us today.

“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic. To make the Inc. 5000 — with the fast growth that it requires — is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.”

Scott Omelianuk, Inc. editor-in-chief

Inc 5000 2023 Methodology

Companies on the 2023 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2019 to 2022. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2019. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent — not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies — as of December 31, 2022.
