Charity auction software can help fundraising event planners organize and manage the numerous details associated with hosting a successful fundraising auction event. If your organization is hosting a gala or other fundraising event in conjunction with your silent auction, your site can be used to take online registrations and sell products for the associated event. When the event day arrives, print the bid sheets generated for each item with the highest current bid included as the starting point. If your charity auction is a virtual event, choose software that allows the administrator to easily email winners with a link that allows them to complete the auction transaction, and track final payments. Visit our section on how to run a silent auction for more guidelines and tips.
