How TravelPledge Supports Your Socially-distant Fundraising

It’s no secret that the coronavirus pandemic has thrown event fundraising for a loop.

At TravelPledge, we’ve been hard at work enhancing our capabilities to support you in your socially-distant fundraising efforts.

Here are some helpful TravelPledge features and resources you may or may not be aware of.

Local Experiences

We’ve partnered with charming B&B’s all over the U.S. to post drivable packages that your donors will love.

All vacation certificates have generous expiration dates so donors will have plenty of opportunities to redeem.

Mobile Bidding Integrations

TravelPledge integrates with three industry-leading mobile bidding software providers: ClickBid, Event.Gives and MaestroSoft.

These integrations mean that auction organizers don’t have to manually export then upload your TravelPledge experiences into their mobile bidding event, saving time and eliminating error.

Virtual Experiences
