FEATURES

Discover how TravelPledge Auctions helps you raise more

Set up a simple online auction

Enter basic details about your event, upload your donated items, and select some TravelPledge experiences. Then open the auction for bidding by your donors. We'll keep the bidding competitive and fun with outbid notifications and "popcorn" bidding.

Sell some items at a fixed price

Perhaps you've procured gift cards or other items from local businesses that you want to sell at a fixed price. Simply upload basic information about the items and how many you have available. We'll promote your fixed-price items until they sell out.

Collect cash donations

Nothing is better for your fundraiser's bottom line than a direct cash donation. Specify as many fund-a-need denominations as you'd like and watch the donations roll in on a real-time dashboard. This is equivalent to a "paddle raise" at your gala's live auction.

AUCTION ITEMS

Unique experiences your donors will love

Add local golf, B&B stays, wine tastings, luxury vacations and much more to your online auction with a single click. Here's a sampling from our partners that we thought you'd like.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Questions? We've got answers

  • How does it work from the bidder's perspective?

    Bidders visit your custom TravelPledge Auction page (no app to download) and register with their name and email address. After bidding closes, we email winning bidders a link to their invoice. Upon payment, winners of TravelPledge items automatically receive their certificate and redemption instructions.

  • Is there any obligation to use TravelPledge experiences?

    There is no obligation to use TravelPledge items in your auction. If you want to use our simple online auction software to sell only the donated items you upload, that is perfectly OK.

  • Does TravelPledge Auctions support ticketing?

    No. TravelPledge Auctions is a simple solution and does not support selling tickets for your event or raffle. For ticketing and other advanced features, consider a TravelPledge integrated partner for your event.
