Tickets your way

Tailor ticketing features to meet your needs with simple and advanced options. Set up free and paid ticket types with custom fields, quantities, and promo codes.

Boost fundraising participation

Raise more by inviting teams and individuals to set up personalized fundraising pages as part of your event.  Require fundraising participants to pay an entry fee or set minimum fundraising goals to help promote community engagement.

Increase donations

Prompt attendees to add a donation to their ticket purchase throughout the event, including in person right after you scan them in. Can’t attend? They can still donate, too!

Add an auction to any event—or make it the whole event

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

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.
