Does This Sound Familiar?

"I've never organized a fundraiser." "I'm not sure how much we made last year." "The volunteer that had all the data from our last event has left so we're not sure who gave us donations last time." "Closing the auction was a nightmare. A few items went to the wrong people. We're still trying to sort it out."

We Have The Solution

We know the challenges of putting on a successful fundraiser through our own experiences as well as from attending other events. That knowledge has been used to create hibid.

Do We Support Online Auctions?

Absolutely! You don't need a location. We cover all the bases from registration to bidding to checkout.

What About Galas?

Definitely! From online ticket sales to bid sheets to interactive slideshows to online guest access to self-serve checkout. Plus cash donation and other revenue tracking and integration. Plus tax receipts. And more ...

How About Smaller Events?

Yes! The gala options give you the world of possibilities. Simply use what you need and bypass the rest.

What Does It Cost?

It's free, except for online payments. If you want to allow your guests to pay online for tickets or use the self-serve checkout we charge a 1% fee on top of the fee charged by the credit card processor. You have the option of adding our fee to the amount owing.
