Table of Contents

For non-profit organisations, one of the primary concerns is keeping costs low while maximising donation potential. Online donation portals must be easy to create, easy to use, and flexible in the options they offer to your donors, while in-person events must be profitable but uncomplicated to run.

The applications mentioned on this list all work well together, making all of this possible for your organisation. With Brickwork, Click & Pledge, and DJH Consulting, you can do the following:

  • Manage all donations and their schedules, and make it easy for people to donate
  • Manage all fundraising events from within Salesforce
  • Manage in-person auctions from tickets through to end-of-night receipts

These Salesforce applications have the potential to reduce the pressure on your valuable volunteers and employees, while also increasing the capabilities for fundraising events and facilitating donations.

Click & Pledge Event Management

Organising every aspect of a money-raising event can be challenging. From marketing to accepting payments, many different departments within your organisation may have a part to play. With the Click & Pledge Event Management application, the whole process can be managed by a much smaller team. Intuitive page set-up tools allow you to build the necessary web pages from within Salesforce, and then market them to your desired audience, while the Click & Pledge payments system handles every kind of payment and manages donor details. Once your event is set up, you can monitor ticket sales and popularity, as well as your growing fundraising total.

  • Create unlimited events within your Salesforce Org
  • Build registration and payment pages using customised text, images, widgets, and more
  • Promote events on the event listing page, and host your event catalogue on your website

  • Register multiple attendees at once
  • Accept payments online using the Click & Pledge payment software, and access funds within 48 hours
  • View post-event analytics, including the number of tickets sold, money raised, and attendance

Auctions for Salesforce by DJH Consulting

The Auctions for Salesforce application, created by DJH Consulting, manages every aspect of organising a fundraising auction. The fast pace of the auction experience requires a management tool that can keep up and keep track of purchases, sales, and payments. The DJH Auctions app does just this, ensuring that every one of your donors leaves with the appropriate tax information and receipt, and your organisation leaves with security and the maximum amount of money raised. Most importantly of all, the Auction app integrates with other third-party applications, so you can manage your auction successes alongside regular donations.

How can DJH Consulting benefit your organisation?

  • Track auction donations
  • Sell tickets and buy auction items through your Salesforce Org
  • Automatically issue receipts at the end of the event, with a clear distinction between tax-deductibility and fair market value
  • Check-in and check-out pages for guests on the night
  • Integrates with Click & Pledge and Brickwork, so you can charge for tickets within Salesforce, take payment information when your guests check-in and ensure payment on check-out
