Overall Satisfaction with OneCause

OneCause is used by our Development department to host our fundraising events including Galas, auctions, and raffles. It helps us engage supporters digitally and host ticketing sales and donations for in-person events.
  • Host digital auctions for fundraising.
  • Engage users with text-to-give and other donation options.
  • Manage event registration including table assignments, supporter names, and other data.
  • Compile fundraising results into built-in reports for easy post-event evaluation and analysis.
  • Custom pages could be improved by adding options for elements to drop in like buttons, videos/animated images, etc. The WYSWYG editor is relatively easy to use once you have some practice, but an interface with templates to use and work from would be even easier.
  • Listing fixed price items among auction items can be confusing for guests. Fixed price items should have more customization options, so this feature could be more easily used to sell raffle tickets, Heads or Tails chances, or other fixed-price event items.
  • OneCause helped us raise over $200,000 for our 2020 Gala - nearly $31,000 more than we raised in 2019.
  • OneCause allowed us to move our in-person thrift shop to an online auction version during COVID. Our in-person thrift sales generate an average of $1,500 since we are only able to accept cash. With online participation and credit/debit card sales through OneCause, we were able to raise nearly $3,500.

OneCause is a great tool for nonprofits hosting online auctions, events, and other fundraising efforts. OneCause staff are also extremely helpful onsite at events and will provide technical equipment, help manage live auctions, registration, silent auctions, etc for your team. I highly recommend nonprofits seeking a way to engage supporters digitally and through text-to-give, online auctions, and other cutting-edge fundraising techniques.
