Fundraising events, auctions, and raffles make more money... a lot more money.
Dawn Hillman, The Sanibel School
Thank you for all your help on our auction. We did the best we had done in four years and we got 70% of our auction values. This is soooo much better than the 40% they had been getting. In the short, we had less to auction but we raised more!
Caroline Moore, Sullivan's Island Elementary
We've been running virtually the same auction, with the same items from the same donors for the past 4 years. We've always done well at our annual Wig & Stache Bash, but in the past two years that we have been using Bidr we have increased the amount we have made by almost 50% both years!
Patrick Bryant, Chairman of the Board
The best part is everyone 'gets it' right away and has a lot of fun with raffle items; and we don't have to scramble to collect tickets and figure out who won what at the end of the night anymore!
How Fundraising Event Organizers use Software to raise more money.
Come on, you know you've got to try it out!
It’s this simple. Create your account below and before you know it, you’ll be on your way to raising a ton of cash for your cause. After all, this is all because of your cause!
Create an Event
just answer a few questions
Chances are that your ghosts of silent auction past and present include stacks of paper, boxes of pens and frantic, after-event tallying. Well, Christmas has come early for you! The Bidr platform was built to make your life as an event organizer easier. It only takes a few moments to create an event, then you’ll have access to a custom dashboard where you add auction and raffle items, track your tickets sold, as well as text your attendees outbid notifications, auction results, raffle winners, payment confirmations and more.
Add Tickets, Auction and Raffle Items
add as many as you like
After you set up your event, load it up with all the amazing items that will inspire your attendees to dig deep for the cause. Enter raffle, auction items, or other items like votes and tee shirts. Include multiple photos and details of each item so that people who can’t make it to the event can still bid from their home…or yacht (you did remember to invite the Ballers right?). Bidr’s algorithm automatically sets minimum bid amount and bid increments, taking out the guess work.
Staff your event with volunteers or bidr experts
super easy to run events
Bidr is designed to make it super easy for volunteers to staff your event. They can add new walk-up attendees using the bidr admin console along with other functions including credit card update, place bids, text all attendees and more. Additionally, you can hire bidr experts to attend the event and help manage the whole process.
