HelloFund makes it painless to set up your auction and accept bids online. Your donors easily interact with and bid on your items. When the auction is over, payments are collected securely online and deposited directly into your account.

We partnered with some wonderful organizations for their Virtual/Hybrid Auction in 2020

HelloFund was a dream to work with! We were a little lost in how we would be able to pull together our Silent Auction this year in response to Covid-19 as we traditionally have it in person, but Phil and his team were able to quickly help us transition online! They are responsive, organized, and timely. He was able to work with me on making our auction still appealing/easy to use for various stakeholders across the country and even expand our reach. The software is easy to use and his team knows what they are talking about! We would not have broken our Silent Auction record without their help. I could not recommend Phil and his team enough!

Auction Catalog

Build your auction items inside your HelloFund admin or import an existing spreadsheet. Set starting bids, increments, closing times, categories, descriptions, exceptions and more. Add images to highlight items.

Secure Payments

We have partnered with Stripe to offer best-in-class security for mobile payments and payouts to your nonprofit’s account. We charge a flat 3.5% on credit card payments to cover card fees, storage, disbursement and bank fees.

Event Website

We call it your “virtual venue”. That’s because your landing page can register bidders, play video, accept donations, receive auction items, show off your Instagram feed, preview your event and more.

Text-to-Give All Year

That’s right, even when you’re not running an auction you can raise money for free! Your donors can text-to-give, scan a QR code or go to your secure donation page 365 days a year.

Outbid Notices

Let us take care of keeping your bidders bidding. When someone is outbid, we’ll send an immediate text message. If we can’t send a text, we’ll send an email. It’s all about staying in the loop.

Max Bidding

Less is often more. That’s why we allow bidders to set a maximum bid and let it ride. We’ll do the incremental bidding on their behalf and notify them if they are outbid.
