Until recently, a silent auction at a charity or gala event would involve bits of paper and sealed envelopes at the back of a room. But developments in technology now mean silent auctions are an exciting part of the main event and a hugely effective fundraiser.
Each guest bids for an item using the auction app on an iPad or iPad mini supplied by Crystal. Or they can use their own device such as a smartphone or tablet and make a bid via the auction website. Bids are completely automated and can happen live during the event. Or you can open the bidding in advance so you can raise money even before the event starts.
We manage the bids

In 2003, we were the first company to introduce interactive silent auctions to good causes. Since then, we've helped lots of charities and other organisations raise cash in a fun and risk-free way.
Our newly launched online charity auction service is the only one that enables anyone, anywhere in the world to bid on items. And we're also the only charity auction service that collects and manages all the bids, and Gift Aids all donations.
