A fundraising event can help bring in a large amount of money for a worthy cause, particularly when a charity includes fun activities, like a silent auction. But why should you wait until the day of your gala or party to raise money for your organization when you could be collecting donations days, weeks or even months in advance? GiveSmart has the solution to solve this problem! We can help increase the awareness for your cause and give your collection efforts a proven boost every day before your event with a dedicated fundraising website that is open to the public year-round.
How It Works:
Our professional developers will create a sophisticated website for your charity that is customized with your organization’s logo, brand colors, messages and images. We will then put in your upcoming event details, giving your guests a place to check back on for their personal reference before the big day.
However, you don’t just get an individual design with GiveSmart. Your site also comes with a unique web link that you can post to your social media platforms, helping to drive awareness and increase support.
While it is an attractive creation, your website isn’t just about looks. We want to make sure that your site is as functional as it is stylish. That is why our experts work with you to combine a variety of highly effective functions on the site that are specifically designed to give your guests a great online experience and keep the funds pouring in.
Our experts can set up your website with pages that are dedicated to a variety of fundraising efforts, such as selling tickets, running silent auctions, accepting donations or whatever else may best serve your final goals. You even have the option of accepting any major credit card payment online to streamline your donation acceptance process!
Along with all of these amazing features and design options for your website, you’ll also have the ability to receive automatic monthly reports that provide you with detailed and integrated information about what has been going on online for your cause. These statements break down all of the data we’ve been able to collect about your supporters as well as the amount of traffic to the site and the current total amount raised, giving you a clear view of how close you are to your final fundraising goal.
With a dedicated fundraising website from GiveSmart, you'll be able to:
- Centralize all of your fundraising activity in a single place
- Accept donations 365 days a year at any time, day or night
- Open online auctions as far before an event as you choose

What Our Customers Say
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!
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.
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 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.
