Hosting a fundraising event? Most orgnisations or individuals we partner with, understand the importance of including a silent auction in their event. However, we have found that often people overlook the live pledging component and how it can impact the total amount raised. Some charities feel like they have to make a choice between an event with pledging donations or a silent auction, when in fact it’s actually encouraged to use both!
Not familiar with pledging? Pledging is a fantastic way to get people to donate to your cause directly. Some may also refer to this as direct donations, fund-a-need, pledge drive, calls for cash or a giving moment.
Running pledging alongside a silent auction doesn’t have to be complicated either. Givergy’s pledging system, available for any device, is designed to be user-friendly so that anyone can donate at the touch of a button. When used effectively, pledging is a fantastic way to generate funds for your cause!
