501 Auctions® is now GiveSmart


501 Auctions® was acquired in 2018 by Community Brands and brought together with GiveSmart, under its name. By bringing these companies together, we can provide even greater value – a wealth of industry expertise, resources, and technology that directly benefits you, our charity partners. 

And with multiple levels of service, GiveSmart offers a solution for every type of fundraising event or campaign. Utilize our industry-leading fundraising software to create an engaging, integrated, and exciting donor-giving experience. All Year Round. 

For donors, volunteers, and staff, the GiveSmart platform is regularly updating features to make giving easier and fundraising tasks more efficient. We are your partners in fundraising.

GiveSmart at a glance

GiveSmart’s platform allows your organization to engage donors via silent auction, virtual fundraising, online fundraising, growth fundraising, and more – making it easier than ever for supporters to give to your mission to maximize your impact.

Allow guests to bid or donate with any type of device. Our partners see an average increase of 30% in funds raised at events when they incorporate GiveSmart after using paper bidding.

On the backend, your GiveSmart Hub can be built as a one-stop-shop for your campaigns throughout the year. Event ticketing, sponsorships, auctions, donations (online fundraising and item procurement), social links, and any other event fundraising activities would be managed in your GiveSmart Organization Hub.

Manage your ticket sales and distribute them electronically while allowing buyers to register for any other fundraising elements. Assign seats, automatically build guest lists, distribute bidder numbers, and ask for pre-event donations all in one ticketing solution.

“Our decision to change over to GiveSmart and use you as our new fundraising platform has been the best decision we made for the school. GiveSmart is a true blessing right now in our time of need. Thank you so much for being our partner in our children’s school fundraiser. We can never say enough.”
