FEATURES

Discover how TravelPledge Auctions helps you raise more

Set up a simple online auction

Enter your event details, upload donated items, and select some TravelPledge experiences. Then open the bidding to donors. We'll keep bidding competitive with outbid notifications and "popcorn" bidding.

Collect donations and sell fixed price items

Specify your fund-a-need or "paddle raise" denominations and watch the donations roll in! Additionally, offer items for a fixed price, like donated gift cards, and we'll promote them until they sell out.

Monitor your results on a real-time dashboard

During and after your auction, view your dashboard to learn how much you've raised and who has paid for their items. Additionally, add absentee bids, mark multiple winning bidders, resend invoices, and more.
