Going Once, Twice... Tech that Brings in More Money for Charity

  1. 1. Brought to you by: EventTechBrief.com Going Once, Twice... Tech that Brings in More Money for Charity
  2. 2. The future of fundraising has arrived with the Galabid software developed by Crowdcomm. In May of 2014, Crowdcomm launched in the United States. The software is used by a number of charities worldwide to facilitate live and silent auctions on site at gala events, encouraging bidding wars via mobile devices. A Look at Galabid
  3. 3. With Galabid, gone are the days of live auctioneers who rattle off names and prices of auction items while attendees raise their paddles to bid. A Look at Galabid
  4. 4. Designed for mobile devices—primarily smartphones—Galabid uses the mobile phone as a unified tool and utilizes text messaging, social media platforms, and mobile browsing to produce results during live and silent auctions. A Look at Galabid “if you can text message, then you can use this system.” Ray Hansen, Crowdcomm
  5. 5. While Galabid sees most of its action during live and silent auctions at charity galas, the tool is also used at events such as 5ks, walk-a-thons, golf tournaments, and any event hosting live donations. A Look at Galabid Data reveals that Galabid has increased donation revenue on average by 40%.
  6. 6. Life Cycle of an Event A common trend Hansen has noticed among Galabid users is taking auction items that have been re-donated by winners and opening up a new bid after the event—bringing in more donation dollars. Galabid also enables bidders to: Register prior to events through a mobile device Engage in last-minute bidding wars on their smartphone via 30-second and one-minute warnings VS. Pay for items through their smartphones $
  7. 7. HowGalabidStandsOut Through social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, attendees can share information about both the charity they are supporting and the auction items they are bidding on.
  8. 8. Simplicity The Galabid software starts at $1,999 and varies in price depending on which package the user prefers. As the product continues to evolve, Crowdcomm looks toward enhancing Galabid’s social media capabilities and introducing a new raffle module. Hansen says that one extremely useful feature of the program is its ability to keep track of data for users during events. Organizations are able to say goodbye to Excel spreadsheets and base future decisions regarding auction items, etc., on the data Galabid provides. "This is truly a system that an organizer can pick up and run on their own. They don’t need us." Ray Hansen, Crowdcomm
