Greater Giving Event Software manages all the details necessary to plan and run a successful gala event and benefit auction. It allows you to register and track guests; manage vendors, sponsors, and volunteers; organize item procurement; manage guest seating; send email communications; print night of event documents like bid sheets; and report and analyze event success.
The package includes Event Software, Auctionpay, and Online Payments. Text to Donate is included as an option for use with Online Payments. Greater Giving Online Bidding is fully integrated and can be added. Event Software enables you to manage all your event tasks in a centralized cloud-based location. And on the day of your event, it helps deliver a smooth volunteer and guest experience with an easy-to-use event and retail interface — Go Time and Storefront.
- Greater Giving Online Payments is a customizable way to raise funds and collect credit card payments online. Visitors to your website can easily and quickly register for an event, pre-register credit cards, and make a donation, membership payments, or other purchases. Online Payments can also be used to register and pay for classes, seminars, or conferences unrelated to a benefit event or auction.
- Greater Giving’s Text to Donate is an included option designed to invite your supporters to your Online Payments’ donation page through a simple text message. Select the keyword you want to use for your giving campaign, then email, socialize and share your shortcode and keyword—Greater Giving software will process the donations.
- Auctionpay is a secure and mobile payment processing solution designed for live and silent auctions, golf tournaments and galas. It improves your guests’ experience at the event by reducing long check-in and check-out, encouraging a relaxed bidding environment. It also eliminates inaccuracies that come with manual, post-auction credit card data entry, making you and your staff and volunteers more efficient.
- Online Bidding (can be added to this package) allows your guests to engage in bidding on auction items from their own smartphones or tablets. Our online bidding solution is integrated with Event Software, which provides you with all the features and functions you need to run a successful online bidding event.
