Greater Giving: Great software for event management

2016-10-18

.) - events that usually have an auction component and the staff, volunteers and constituents love it.

Pros

Ease of use, outstanding customer support, mobile bidding option/component, auctioneer features for a professional live auction, leader boards, smooth check-in/check-out event process, ability to e-mail receipt to patrons at check out, volunteers absolutely love it!

Cons

Reporting is confusing and needs work and they need to make improvements in the backend website creation process but we are able to get the information out of the system that we need and we have great looking, easy to use websites.

Keeping my life sane!

2016-10-18

The reports have been invaluable to use with new committee members year after year to really hone in on the auction items that sell the best. The database makes connecting with the audience easy, year after year.

Pros

The database features and fields, mobile bidding and ease of email campaigns.

Cons

Some of the fields could be located on different pages to make the work flow more integrated

Great Event Management Software

2018-03-28

Greater Giving provides all the functionality we need at a very reasonable price. The event registration and check-in/check-out process is easy and much appreciated by our guests.

Pros

Nice set of features for the cost. Online auctions have been a tremendous benefit for our organization

Cons

Admin interface is sometimes difficult to work with, and could use a redesign.

Greater Giving Review

2017-10-04

Like stated before Greater Giving is an amazing software and it makes it very easy to run your event through it.

Pros

I love the easy access to those working with you (staff) and later for those using the Silent Auction feature the ease for those that sign up to be able to see the items and receive notifactions.

Cons

There are a few kinks for example while adding your credit card via picture for those participating in the silent auction the information doesn't get put in exactly correct which causes for the process to take longer and the registration to be more difficult.

Greater Giving has helped make our event process easier.

2018-07-19

Pros

It helps keep us organized when we plan for events and the online auction feature is fun to use and helps us raise more money then we could if we did it with paper bid sheets.

Cons

The reports are hard to use and hard to customize and the event website it limited in what you can do with it.

Could not do what we do without Greater Giving!

2016-10-18

Greater Giving performed like a champ before, during and after the event. I also began using the website capabilities for other events/fundraisers.

Pros

Full reporting capabilities.

Cons

When the website gets updated and things move around or there are different ways to do them. No manual updates when that happens.

Greater Giving Event Software

2018-05-10

Overall it is a still a great software that has great functions and so far is the best I have used to run a large silent auction 50 items plus.

Pros

The software purchase covers features dealing with ticket sales, silent auction bids, community partners, sponsorship purchases and can safely store credit card information.

Cons

It also doesn't make it very easy to set a Max capacity for an event and have it close down automatically.

Like it for Galas

2019-12-06

We were then able to export the data into our donor software.

Pros

We have used this software for our gala for many years. I inherited it and began using it and found the transition to be pretty smooth. I really like it for assigning bidders to tables and to individuals and for tracking auction donations and values.

Cons

We are not doing our gala anymore so we were unable to try that feature.

Greater Giving - really does give!

2016-10-20

Because it is web based, there are no restrictions on number of users and you can lock/unlock per event we have used it with select "third party" events- where all proceeds benefit us but the event is run by a group of volunteers and not a formal organization.

Pros

It's overall ease of use and convenience.

Cons

Same goes for the reports- we know that there are so many but the training just touches the surface.

Great customer service and a continually developing product.

2016-10-18

We have had success with the Greatergiving event software for the past few years.

Pros

Ease of use for event night volunteers.

Cons

There is a great deal of options and functionality so there is a learning curve to make the most of the features.

Satisfied Customer for over 7 years.

2016-10-18

I would highly recommend this software to anyone who is wanting to make operations seamless for both your guest and volunteers. Mobile bidding functions that were incorporated are very popular with our constituents and have raised the overall amount of donations given.

Pros

Ease of use and customer support.

Cons

It is a little higher in cost but well worth the expense and ease of mind the night of the event.

Gets the job doneish

2019-05-31

I used for organizing fundraising - I'd personally reaearch other software in the future to see if they have better search options for easier fill-in or better grammar checks for entries.

Pros

It wasveasy to keep track of lots of different pieces for donor fundraising and an auction event. In export functionality, it was great.

Cons

It feels like there should be a built in feature to search businesses and addresses or such.

Recommendations to others considering Greater Giving Event Software

We have used other platforms and are so delighted that we found Greater Giving. We had a committee and a vetting process - it is definitely worth every penny. No platform is perfect and all will have some features that are cumbersome or not exactly the way you would want. Greater Giving has made so many aspects of our online registration, auctions, receipting and other aspects smooth and efficient. Make sure to utilize the training to get an edge and rely on their support team. Try it out and compare.

Recommend Greater Giving for nonprofit events management

2015-02-10

We have over 700 guests that register quickly and easily, and most who choose to pre-swipe a credit card, making the check out process no longer a necessity at the end of the evening.

Will make check-in a breeze

2018-06-22

The benefits of Greater Giving include an easy upload and check-in process, a simple check-out process for auction purchases or donations, and a simple training for staff members.

Pros

The features of this products "go-time" make for a really easy event check-in.

Cons

The search function could be expanded on to assist better with misspellings or connections to other members (spouse names, etc).
