Today we announce a new milestone of $4 billion raised by nonprofits and foundations on our fundraising platform. 

“Today we celebrate the hard work and dedication of tens of thousands of hard-working nonprofit staff and volunteers, who put in countless hours to change their communities for the better. We are humbled to be their trusted partner,” says Steve Greanias, General Manager of Fundraising Solutions at Community Brands.  

The milestone of $4 billion raised has been made possible through our partnerships with more than 11,500 nonprofits, schools, and foundations executing upwards of 54,000 campaigns and reaching 25 million donors. Our solution creates an engaging, exciting, and easy giving experience for donors, all year round. 

Our platform helps organizations connect with donors from anywhere and at any time. Through engaging experiences, donors are more easily able to participate in fundraising auctions, make donations, buy tickets, join golf foursomes, and further engage with the causes they care about.   

“Our nonprofit partners have already raised more this year, than they did in all of 2020, bucking the current market trend. Their innovation, tenacity, and resilience are making a big difference,” shared Greanias. “Because GiveSmart enables organizations to create better relationships with donors, it leads to them raising more at both their distinguished, annual events and through other, creative opportunities all year round.”

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.
