What Our Customers Say
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
