Bivona Child Advocacy Center uses DonorPro

Families First

We do a lot of fundraising events. Every fall we have a big event with a silent auction. It generates a lot of revenue and is essential to our success. In my first three years with Families First before DonorPro, auction checkouts were miserable, both for our staff and for our supporters. With over 300 items to process, some donors would stand in line for hours. Then we would spend weeks afterwards trying to reconcile reports, send receipts, and tie up loose ends. For our 2010 fall event, we used DonorPro to plan and manage our event and auction. DonorPro handled sponsorships, seating, registration and all auction logistics – from organizing auction items to checkout and receipting. What a difference DonorPro made! Saturday night, checkout was completed for over 300 guests with 322 items in under 30 minutes. Everyone walked away with their items, thank you letters and receipts. And, on Monday AM, we printed out all financial reports for our event.
