Greater Giving Event is an all-in-one solution from our online platform, to manage all the steps of your auction and year-round fundraisers—creating a better experience for everyone. Event combines three Greater Giving solutions into a single offering with discounted set-up and support, reducing costs and streamlining your event management.
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. In this package, Greater Giving Event Software is delivered on one platform—Event Software Online, used for planning and managing a fundraising event on the cloud.
The package includes Event Software Online, Auctionpay, and Online Payments. Greater Giving Online Bidding is fully integrated and can be added. Event Software Online 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.
- 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.

What Our Clients Say
"Greater Giving’s Event package provided us with ‘the total package’. When it comes to Greater Giving, do it! It’s always easy to get a hold of someone when you say, ‘I did that wrong!” We were also thrilled with how well received the Auction Boosters were. They were wonderful packages, and it was so great we did not have to go out and procure them; we simply went to the Greater Giving site. It was all very easy.”
