winning bid

Your cost varies with the winning bid amount so
you'll generate a meaningful donation even at
the starting bid. Forget the fixed-price
consignment travel packages where you often
break even, or worse!

Direct redemption
means happy donors

After your event, we send out certificates to all
winning bidders. Redemption instructions on the
certificate connect winning bidders directly
with our world-class experience providers.
No unnecessary forms or middlemen!

"It was so nice to have someone to communicate with and get questions answered right away. All our side trips were better than advertised!"

How it works

It's simple, we promise. Select auction items posted by generous businesses and promote them at your fundraiser. We'll email and text winning bidders their certificates and redemption instructions.

Questions? We've got answers

Why do businesses post certificates to TravelPledge?

We partner with generous experience providers that want to maximize the promotional value they receive at charity auctions. Additionally, some providers receive revenue when one of their certificates sells to cover their fulfillment costs.

What determines which certificates we qualify for?

When posting a certificate to TravelPledge, our partner experience providers indicate which organizations and causes they support. Most support all 501(c)(3) nonprofits in some capacity with a fully or partially donated certificate. Their preferences determine the experiences you see in your TravelPledge dashboard and the percentage of the winning bid you would keep if you sell the certificate.

How much do certificates cost?

Your cost for a sold certificate is proportional to the winning bid amount. At a minimum, you’ll keep 80% of the winning bid for small-ticket experiences, like golf rounds, and 40% of the winning bid for big-ticket experiences, like vacations. The percentage you’ll keep is displayed next to each experience in your TravelPledge dashboard.

Will we owe anything if a certificate doesn’t sell?

Creating your account is free, and you will not owe anything if a certificate doesn’t sell. We’ve designed our program to minimize your risk whenever a certificate doesn’t sell or sells near the starting bid.

How do winning bidders receive their certificates?

After your event, log in to your TravelPledge dashboard to report winning bid information (name, email and amount) and pay your invoice. Once we receive payment, we’ll email winning bidders their certificates. The certificates contain redemption instructions.
