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
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.
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.
We were completely thrilled with every way Give Smart assisted us, from our first phone call to our final closing report. They couldn't have been more pleasant and prompt in responding to our needs. My numerous conversations with our Client Service Specialist, became as comfortable as talking with an old friend. The efficiency, professionalism and overall friendliness of their team was amazing. Our event was a huge financial success with the assistance of GiveSmart.
