Overall Satisfaction with OneCause

We use OneCause to manage our annual dinner and auction, which, as a small non-profit, is our largest fundraiser of the year. Bidpal through OneCause allowed us to shift our entire auction online and to a virtual format during COVID, and we're excited to try out the in-person module as well at next spring's event.
  • Allows users to bid on items anywhere in the world through their smartphone or computer
  • Integrates attendee data seamlessly with other fundraising software such as Raiser's Edge
  • Allows organization to custom build their auction website through their module
  • Easily collects donations and transfers them to your organization's financial accounts
  • When building a custom page, adding images and video is a tedious and cumbersome process
  • We would not have been able to hold our largest fundraising event the past two years without it
  • Overall bids on items increased substantially
  • Allowed us to engage with constituents across the country, not just locally
We looked at numerous online auction modules, but OneCause was consistently the highest rated in the industry, offered an affordable three-year contract, and their completed auction sites were the best looking and easiest to navigate for users.

OneCause is well suited for in-person or online fundraising events and is the perfect platform for any auction. As an organization, we have not yet explored their other options, but their Bidpal software allowed us to shift our annual auction online, increasing revenue and saving both staff and constituent time.
