This interview originally appeared in Philanthropy News Digest on December 15, 2022. It features insights from GiveSmart’s Vice President of Fundraising Strategy, Jon Biedermann, and shares more on the impact of FTX’s downfall on nonprofit fundraising, and the implications and perceptions of cryptocurrency and giving.

“… if you look at cryptocurrency’s portion of philanthropy, it’s less than $1 billion annually—probably much less than that, and that’s less than 0.2 percent.” Biedermann shared.

What our clients say

We needed a platform to make sales online and to track and display ads for our sponsors. GiveSmart was perfect. We ended up making close to $15,000 more than we had hoped for. Definite better ROI than we anticipated. The interface is easy to use and provides plenty of options to get help if needed.

Using GS has created ease in auction bookkeeping, payments, and generating post-event thank you/tax letters. While we were online during COVID, our interactions with our GiveSmart via phone, email, and zoom were seamless. A representative always got back to us within the day. I would recommend GiveSmart to anyone doing a large online event.

GiveSmart is highly flexible - you can use it for [a] simple registration and check-in, to full-scale galas with complex order forms, onsite upsells, live auctions, seating management, and more.

GiveSmart is easy to use and ideal for virtual events and can be used for in-person events to manage the silent auction, seating charts, and check-in to the event. Being able to use the platform for unlimited events within the contract year is very useful and being able to add other users and volunteers for different levels of access is helpful as well.
