Frustrated with the limitations of using spreadsheets to manage fundraising event details, Bailey House Event Manager April McKenzie started looking for a better solution.
Bailey House provides housing and services to homeless people and families living with HIV and AIDS in New York City. The organization was experiencing all the challenges that go along with manually assigning bidder numbers, slow check-out lines and manually reconciling receipts.
After their 2005 fundraiser, Bailey House Auction Party, McKenzie had had enough. She decided to use Greater Giving Event Software to streamline the process. Later, she added Auctionpay to speed up check-out. As a result, Bailey House raised a record-breaking $800,000 at their 2008 event. Now McKenzie and her team are using Greater Giving Software Online to centralize their data and reduce duplicate efforts.
