Boost your fundraising efforts

Invite teams and individuals to create personalized peer-to-peer fundraising pages for your event fundraiser. You can then raise more and foster friendly competition by asking participants to pay an entry fee or set a minimum fundraising goal.
Promote generosity

Increase donations

Encourage attendees to make a donation alongside their ticket purchase. Or, give them the opportunity to donate even if they can't attend.

Add an auction to any event or make it the main attraction

Sell unlimited physical and digital auction items at a fixed price or the highest bid, with real-time bidding, text and email notifications, and automated payment collection that’s seamlessly integrated with your event fundraising.

Givebutter is simple for our volunteers and supporters to use, it provides us with the live event donation capability we need, and it's perhaps the cheapest tool out there.
