"A must for Event Support!"

What do you like best?

GiveSmart offers tailored event support in any location. Their team will go to wherever your event is located. They were a tremendous help with our annual Gala last year in Hawaii. They are super friendly, they offer onsite event day and booth exhibit hall support to ease donors on auction bidding. Their website platform is super user friendly. They even offer a crowd funding platform to use free for one year with a contract for event support. The day of the event they have several team reps on hand to help with bidding and closeout. The whole event registration and closeout process was quick and efficient.

What do you dislike?

They could be a little pricey, around $8,000 so be sure your event needs support and could raise more money then cost of their support. Our event raises about $50,000 so with the cost of the platform we made about $40,000.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Please access your needs and consider if the price is worth the cost based on your evaluation of donor giving.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have seen an increase in donor giving, pledges. Their platform is a very easy system for auction bidding and allows you to select reports on all auction bidders and a report on outstanding payments so you may easily reach out to each donor for payments on their bids.

It is very easy to use when you are going into the dashboard and uploading and changing items. The ease of use is great!

"Game Changer!"

What do you like best?

Their professionalism and the data. They send knowledgeable team members and the data we receive post event is very informative.

What do you dislike?

Red shirts- while these work fine at a golf outing, it's not ideal for a gala setting. But I believe they are changing that up?

Recommendations to others considering the product

I believe they truly allow us to raise more money- it's worth it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We free up staff time- who would have otherwise been pulling bid sheets- and I believe we are able to raise more money because of the ease of use during the live/silent auctions and donation ask.

"GiveSmart Live Auction is great!"

What do you like best?

It is super user friendly, has a great look on the bidding page that donors see and the customer service is really high level.

What do you dislike?

You have to enter a ton of information for each item. Takes too much time, especially if you're a smaller staff.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reaching more supporters, faster to get them to bid on auction items so that we can raise more money.
