In 2009, a small digital marketing agency was challenged by one of its clients, a cancer hospice, to help them better engage patrons at their next silent auction event.
Instead of bidding with pen and paper, the little agency proposed a mobile bidding application.
The cancer hospice raised three times more than it ever had before.
The next week a handful of other charities were clamoring for the technology.

What Our Customers Say
As you know this was the first time that our Temple has used a bidding company during our annual auction. I can't tell you how happy I am that we did so. You service is more than efficient and easy to use. Having our auction online made us more money than we would have, had we done the traditional silent auction. Most of all it was all less work for me and I actually got to enjoy the event.
As an event planner, the best part about using the GiveSmart team is how easy they make running an auction. The increased revenue is nice, but the fact that I did not have to worry about check out, or monitoring the auction tables or the auction at all, gave me the freedom I needed to mingle with guests, network and take care of other event issues.
We were completely thrilled with every way Give Smart assisted us, from our first phone call to our final closing report. They couldn't have been more pleasant and prompt in responding to our needs. My numerous conversations with our Client Service Specialist, became as comfortable as talking with an old friend. The efficiency, professionalism and overall friendliness of their team was amazing. Our event was a huge financial success with the assistance of GiveSmart.
Thank you for the outstanding customer service, follow up and follow through GiveSmart provided to the Indiana State Chapter, JDRF at our recent Promise Gala held April 12,2014. Our team was delighted that the silent auction broke all records and raised $84,000! We believe this is due primarily to the technology you provided.
Thank you very much for providing such attentive, excellent customer service during Dignity Health-St.Rose Dominican's recent Mardi Gras Ball gala. Not only is GiveSmart effective, but your personal touch has made working with you a real pleasure. You can be sure that we will continue to do business with GiveSmart for years to come.
