Choosing The Right Solution
At GiveSmart, we don’t believe that one size fits all. In fact, we customise a solution for every charity we work with. It’s that level of tailored thinking and service that raises more money for our customers.
Advanced Mobile Bidding
Wonderfully flexible, our advanced mobile bidding option works well with any kind of event. Whether its taking place in a field or even on a boat, your guests will be able to access their personal bidding page or donate funds to your cause. This solution maximises fundraising revenue by keeping your guest’s attention firmly fixed on your auction with outbid alerts straight to their phone.
High End Tablet Bidding
Our tablet bidding option is perfect if you want to give your event that high-class edge or if you have a brilliant collection of items. Guests are able to browse a full colour digital brochure of your auction prizes and experiences in detail. Our high-end Tablet Bidding technology is intuitive and easy for all ages and allows those without a mobile phone to take part in your fundraising.
Get the best of both worlds with our mobile and tablet bidding package - this option caters to all of your supporters and ensures that they are engaged on every level – whatever their bidding preference. The two bidding options compliment each other perfectly, guests can register on the iPads and then receive personalised messages to their mobile phones.
If you want your fundraising to continue year-round this is the option for you. We create a centralised website that combines all of your fundraising activity in one place, allowing you to take donations 365 days a year. Taking payments, running an online auction and selling tickets are just some of the features available.
All of our bidding options include a dedicated and completely customised event website.

From helping guests find their tables to spotting winners, we’re always working to enhance your affair.

If that doesn’t work, we’re happy to assist as “personal shoppers.”

What Our Customers Say
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.
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.
During my time with LLS, I have not experienced working with a vendor with such a high level of customer service, before, during and after the event! The GiveSmart team enhanced our revenue generation during every process of the event. We continued to use this service with our Man Woman of the Year® campaigns in 2015, and look forward to having their services at our upcoming events!
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.
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.
