GiveSmart doesn’t just produce amazing technology; we produce amazing experiences for your guests.
Stress-Free From The Start
A dedicated Event Coordinator from GiveSmart is on hand the moment the planning begins--advising on everything from selecting the right items to starting prices to event timelines.
With you throughout the entire process, the GiveSmart Event Coordinator becomes an invaluable part of your team.
BidPad: More Hands-on Help
Hundreds of fully trained, experienced Customer Service Representatives are ready to help make your event a record-breaking success. Anticipating any potential problems, GiveSmart Representatives go above and beyond to ensure your event runs smoothly.
From helping guests find their tables to spotting winners, we’re always working to enhance your affair. To encourage bidding, we actively engage guests—building rapport with older donors or anyone who may be hesitant about using technology. If that doesn’t work, we’re happy to assist as “personal shoppers.”
As part of our Auction Service, using our unique application, BidPad, our staff are able to place bids or donations on behalf of donors ensuring everyone in the room participate fully at the event.
Far from the do-it-yourself approach of some providers, GiveSmart offers one-of-a-kind, customized solutions.
With us, it’s personal. GiveSmart treats every event as if it were our own. Because we support the causes that you champion, GiveSmart has a vested interest in your success.
While every event is unique, our goal is always the same: provide energizing expertise and more hands-on help, every step of the way.
From choosing the right reserve prices to creating an event timeline—an assigned Event Coordinator will advise and assist. You’ll feel the momentum start to build as we develop your customized website designed for pre- bidding and donations.
After setting up the network, our Event Support Team will be on site to facilitate and monitor at the auction, encourage and assist guests with bidding, take payments, and help in any way.
The event may be over, but GiveSmart will still be working—collecting any outstanding payments and generating invaluable post-event reports to add insight to all future fundraising efforts.
10 Day Payment Promise
We take your money very seriously. To that end, we secure, collect and protect all payments made at your event, give you open access to all the numbers, and release funds in as little as ten days.
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.
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!
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.
