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

What Our Customers Say
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.
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.
From entering the data on to our "Dash Board" to staffing our event with professional and helpful employees, our event was seamless. We exceeded our auction projections by gigantic proportions. Again GiveSmart proves themselves to be money well invested. So much so, I am here to say that I don't see myself ever having an event of such magnitude without GiveSmart at my side.
As i have said repeatedly to our board members, friends and supporters, we have no intention of ever doing an event such our Taste and Golf events without GiveSmart! Your fabulous team was on target this year with the pre-swiping of credit cards, registrations and professional attitude that made checkin and checkout a dream! And, the follow up reports you provided were clear, concise, and allowed us to close our event in record time!
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!
