Virtual Fundraising Examples: Wine Pulls & Other Wine-Related Fundraising

wine pulls and other wine related fundraisers

Since March 1st, fundraisers have continually inspired and motivated each other through the sharing of stories of success. We’ve been compiling these stories so they are easy to find and share. This category of stories is all examples of campaigns that have included wine pulls or other ways wine was incorporated that have been successful. Each story links to its further details in our Virtual Fundraising Examples Blog. There is an unlimited variety here as these creative fundraisers have found many ways to create success for their organizations. Big or small, organizations have a path to success and we are happy to help out.

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.

The Rotary Club of South Whidbey Island

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.

Hope Chest for Breast Cancer

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.
