Great question! BidPal is a technology company on a mission to help non profits across the country feed the hungry, fight cancer, promote the arts, educate young people and everything in between.
We are firmly committed to helping non profits use technology to acquire new donors, communicate their messages, engage their donors, and–importantly–retain those donors.
Our goal is to deliver an affordable best-in-class product that supports millions of causes.
With more than 5,000 fundraisers under our belt since our first in July 2008, we continue to be driven by a single mission: to inspire and enable non profit organizations to leverage technology that delivers phenomenal results for their causes.
We don’t like to brag, but since you asked… here are the top five factors that separate BidPal from the rest:
BidPal’s fundraising software includes:
Plus much, much, more. Schedule a free demo today to learn all that a partnership with BidPal can do for you.
BidPal technology has been used at 8,300+ events by more than 1 million supporters, raising over $1 billion!
While we handle many fundraising events every week, we pride ourselves on providing top-notch support to each partner. You’re never just a number with BidPal.
No problem. Seriously! If a guest doesn’t have a smartphone they can place a bid via a laptop computer, tablet computer (iPad or similar device) or BidPal Handheld device (iPod). These devices can easily be rented via BidPal or if your organization owns them, we’ll be happy to help them connect to your auction.
Absolutely. We encourage it! Guests can bid in advance of your event via a customizable BidPal Giving Center website that provides online auction functionality. All bids made in the online auction, including “max bids,” will automatically carry over to your mobile bidding event.
Life sometimes gets in the way of important events, but with BidPal your donors can be connected to your event even if they are not onsite. By utilizing their smartphone or computer, guests who can’t make it to your event can bid remotely. They’ll even be able to provide their credit card information for payment after the auction closes, providing you an additional opportunity to increase your fundraising.
We have several affordable packages that can be customized to meet your non profit organization’s needs. We know you’re looking for a number to bring back to your team, so unlike some of our competitors who hide their pricing we feel it’s important to be transparent. See our current simple and affordable pricing here.
Our mobile app, while not required to participate in your mobile auction, provides guests the best bidding experience and allows you to engage with your guests beyond the ballroom. The app allows guests to save their receipts from BidPal events and lets organizations send text and push messaging throughout the year.
For as long as you remain a BidPal client. All BidPal clients who have an active annual subscription to our fundraising software have access to all of their previous and current data. It’s that simple.
If your BidPal annual subscription has expired, don’t worry. We’ll be able to provide you access to your previous data and get you up and running once you renew with BidPal. Contact us.
Incredibly easy. Here’s the thing. When we started developing our fundraising software years ago, we heard stories of software that required downloading, was complex to understand, and in some cases was cobbled together by the acquisition of several different companies.
We took note and built an intuitive web-based software product from the ground up, utilizing U.S.-based programmers. While you probably won’t need it, our software includes built-in guided tours, a robust online knowledge base filled with tutorial videos and is backed by our state-of-the-art U.S.-based phone and email support team.
Pricing for Text2Give® starts as low as $495 for a 12-months subscription. See bidpal.com/text2give-pricing for detailed plans.
