What Our Customers Say
Thank you again so much for making the Foothill High School Marching Band Silent Auction such a success. Allowing anyone with a smartphone or computer to participate in the Silent Auction is truly the next level of charitable giving. You were positive and motivating right from the start. You made what seemed like an overwhelming task possible.
I am a GiveSmart customer for life. This technology has taken what used to be a HUGE headache for our small non-profit and turned it into something that helps us raise even more funds while eliminating the hassle of processing payments and handling check-out. I can’t believe we ever used to do this on our own with bid sheets and credit card swipers!
You and your team at GiveSmart have been a tremendous resource. From the early planning phases to event day GiveSmart has provided us with exceptional support and guidance. At our most important event of the year GiveSmart helped us to deliver a successful auction experience. Please extend our sincere appreciation to your team.
This was our first experience with mobile bidding and Give-Smart did a great job explaining how the mobile bidding system would work, what was expected of us, and the advantages of its use. The Give-Smart employees that we talked to were very friendly, easy to work with from the planning stage weeks before the event to the end of the evening. On the night of the event, check-In was a breeze, bidding went smoothly, and check-out was quick and simple. Very impressed with Give-Smart and would definitely use them for next years Silent Auction.
Their high level of customer service before, during, and after the event is the best to date we have received from this type of vendor. Man & Woman of the Year has some unique needs, and GiveSmart built a platform to fit them. The user friendly mobile bidding features, as well as the GiveSmart staff interaction with donors contributed to an increase in revenue and a positive donor experience.
