4 Reasons Why Technology Should Be At The Forefront Of Your Fundraising Event
In the last few decades, technology has dramatically revolutionized the way we work, socialize and operate on a day-to-day basis and your fundraising event shouldn’t be an exception! Chances are, you are already using various forms of technology to create an audience and spread awareness for your incredible cause, and it shouldn’t stop there. What if our innovative fundraising technology could help your brilliant cause raise more?
Givergy has helped over 1,500 events raise more for incredible causes over the last 12 months. Here are 4 reasons why technology should be at the forefront of your fundraising event.
1) Its fun, interactive and it creates a competitive environment
By including fundraising technology at your event, you create an unrivalled atmosphere. Guests can bid either from a tablet or on their smart phone, and all activity is transmitted to a leaderboard. This leaderboard announces the new bid to the audience, reminding them that the silent auction is still up and running and items are being bid on. Therefore, guests are more engaged and involved in friendly competition which will ultimately help you raise more for your cause.
2) Our user friendly interface keeps things simple and efficient
It could not be any simpler, from your audience picking up and bidding on a tablet to getting the proceeds of the auctions, everything is taken care of from start to finish. The cherry on the cake? Our system pulls out the winning bidders and automatically generates invoices for them.
3) Pre-event bidding gets the audience engaged early
Our system makes it easy for all of your attendees to start bidding before the event, thus raising you money well before the big day. Its easy: your guests can bid on any of the lots that are up on the customized website created just for your event and cause. Just give us the green light when you want it to start! Because it can be released to your database well in advance of the live event, it helps you raise more for your amazing cause and you can start your event with some fun competition at a much higher entry bid price!
4)Less follow up time saves you time in the end
With our full service of payment collection team and automatized invoices, you can stay focused on the important things like bringing back donors to your next event!
In the last 12 months Givergy has helped raise $40 million for 850 causes across the globe, and have thoroughly enjoyed helping charities to take their events to the next level with cutting-edge fundraising technology!
