TravelPledge has helped thousands of nonprofits by connecting them with auction items from generous businesses. We're excited to release our free "all-in-one" online auction solution - TravelPledge Auctions!
Setting up your online auction is straightforward and fast. We've included all the features you need and none you don't.
We've partnered with B&Bs, golf courses, and other generous businesses to bring you a huge selection for your auction.
Engage donors wherever they are. We make it easy for your donors to browse items, bid and pay on any smart device.

Watch Dianne launch her online auction to raise money and engage donors.
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.
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.
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.
Add local golf, B&B stays, wine tastings, luxury vacations and much more to your online auction with a single click. Here's a sampling of the experiences posted by generous business owners.
