With access to engaged and enthusiastic community members through Gigit’s social network, it’s easier than ever to attract and promote your events and fundraising initiatives. Plus, with Gigit’s world-class operational management backend, fundraising and event management is easier than ever as well.
Raising money shouldn’t cost you money, so whether you’re hosting a gala or engaging your community with peer-to-peer fundraising, you can now manage everything from volunteers to ticket sales to tax receipts all right here, for free. With Gigit you can:
Turn your event into a fundraiser by adding the peer-to-peer drag-and-drop fundraising component. This will automatically add leader boards to track your progress, and allow your fundraisers to register as an individual, create a team, or join a team to fundraise. Each individual and every team get their own fundraising page with the same functionality as your event page – giving them a place to tell their story, collect donations, and track their fundraising progress. Unique handles and urls for sharing make it easy for your fundraisers to share their page and collect donations from family, friends, and colleagues.
Whether your event is free or a fundraiser or requires payment to attend, creating an event on Gigit is simple with drag-and-drop event components you add to your custom event page. Every event has its own unique handle and url for sharing in social posts, emails, and on your website. Images, videos, and content add to the excitement of your event page, and every event you create is listed on your main Gigit group page for additional visibility.
Getting attendees ready to participate is simple with everything they need to attend in one place – your event page. Create custom event registration forms for tax receipting, tshirt sizes, or any other attendee information you need or want to collect. Adding the drag-and-drop online store component to your event page creates a virtual storefront for ticket and merchandise sales. Every registration and ticket or item sold is recorded in your administrative backend, allowing you to manage attendees, discount codes, receipts, and returns with simple point-and-click functionality.
Issue tax receipts for all or just a portion of ticket or merchandise costs to simply and easily manage the portion of purchase intended as a donation. The amount for the tax receipts can be calculated in dollars or a percentage of the total sale.
Every event registration or ticket purchase adds an attendee to your list – along with the information you collect in your custom form. Use this attendee list to manage event attendee check-in, and use it as an event database for future communications. Communicate directly with attendees using the live chat or email them directly from Gigit. Once an individual is connected to your organization by registering as an attendee, you’ll be able to see the other ways they’ve interacted with your organization on Gigit – and if they’ve created a Gigit profile, you’ll be able to build your relationship with them based on the insights and information they share.
Do you need volunteers to help run your event? Perhaps a paid bartender or servers? You can manage both in Gigit right from your event page as well. Simply post your event volunteer or paid work opportunities on your event page, including custom application forms that gather information specific to each role. Manage the receipt of applications, approvals, and then scheduling, communications, payments, and hours tracking and verification right in the Gigit platform – keeping all of your event components in one easy to access place.
Remove the headache of collecting funds raised – every donation made online to either your event, a team, or an individual fundraiser, goes directly into your account. It’s actually that easy.
