Northern Beaches Women's Shelter

The GalaBid online bidding platform is brilliant. I highly recommend it. We raised record funds at our Gala event on the weekend. We had raised over $40,000 in our silent auction before the event even started. The platform is user-friendly, for setup and for the users. Galabid staff are supportive in the lead-up, during the event, and post-event. This platform has been a game changer for our fundraisers. Totally worth the investment, you won’t regret it.

South West Healthcare

My health service, South West Healthcare, has just finished a fundraising raffle with GalaBid. Working with Angela and Andrew was terrific. They were so helpful, supportive, professional and knowledgeable and we plan to again work with them later this year. We've also rolled out an online raffle with GalaBid. It too was a successful fundraising and community-engaging initiative.

Perry Cross Spinal Research Foundation

Could not recommend GalaBid more, PCSRF has been using this platform for 8 years and it has been a game changer for our fundraisers, increasing money raised year on year. The platform is easy to use for admins and fantastic for the users. Our supporters love it as do we! Totally worth the investment!

Hilton Hotels

Excellent. The technology was seamless. The follow up was prompt. Overall I would really recommend this service for charity balls & other fundraising events.

Nordoff Robins Music Therapy

The auction exceeded my highest expectations and more than doubled last year's take. We can’t speak highly enough of our auction manager's efforts, charm and professionalism. In my dealing with him up to the event he was terrific with great update speeds and made it clear that nothing was too much trouble. Without his presence and your system our take would have been considerably less. I'd recommend your company and it’s services to anybody.

Ronald McDonald House Charities

We have used GalaBid at our events with +400 guests and +100 auction items. It has made the entire silent auction process much easier, less resource heavy, and ultimately increased our revenue.

Jack and Jill

I would like to thank you so much for providing such an excellent service which greatly helped our Hares on the March campaign become such a wonderful success. We would recommend you to anyone.

Applegreen Charitable Fund

Thanks for running a great auction. It was great to work with you on this. Highly recommended!

Diocesan School for Girls

We hosted a gala dinner which featured a live and silent auction to raise funds for a very special philanthropic cause. GalaBid was a fantastic platform to help us achieve our fundraising goals. From the get-go the platform was very user-friendly with any changes made seamlessly. The customer care was outstanding enabling us to go live on the night with confidence galore. In fact, because of the live streaming feature on the night we were able to raise even more. I highly recommend GalaBid to any organisation looking for an outstanding auction result.

New Zealand Labour Party - Banks Peninsula LEC

We looked at a number of options for our first online fundraiser and it was apparent that GalaBid stood out from the rest. The platform was seamless, with ease of use for the organisers and those bidding. A slick, professional outfit with Cathy on hand to answer any questions and to offer constructive advice for 'first timers'. We will certainly be using GalaBid in the future and wholeheartedly recommend it to others.

Netball Northern Zone

For the second year, we’ve used Galabid for our fundraising auction. Super easy to learn and use, with fantastic technical backup from Cathy. It made our auction professional, easy to manage, and easy for our guests to participate. Leaderboards and ‘outbid text’ notifications ensure you keep your audience engaged and assists in maximizing bids. Getting payments at the end of the event was so easy and the reporting is excellent – helpful for the next year’s event planning too. Highly recommend Galabid for fundraising events.

Life Flight

We loved using GalaBid at our annual gala. It was a fun and interactive way for our guests to engage with all of our silent auction items without leaving their seats. This definitely added value and interest to our event!

New Zealand Symphony Orchestra

GalaBid was fantastic! They took all of the stress and workload out of hosting and running an auction. The platform is easy to use for both the organiser and the bidder. It’s is an extremely professionally presented platform. I would never do an auction any other way again.

Artist Aid Ukraine

We could not have been more impressed by the platform Galabid gave us to raise money for work with the victims of the Ukrainian conflict. We were able to run a week-long auction of nearly 100 donated artworks and also a month-long sale at fixed price of over 250 pictures and sculptures. We have raised over £150,000 for the charities involved. The whole process was pretty straightforward for us as volunteer administrators, and for our purchasers and donors. Dee Brannick and her team could not have been more helpful. We have experience of several on-line fundraising and auction sites – we will never look past again, and would recommend them to anyone looking for a cost-effective, professional and slick event partner.

Royal Ascot Outfits

I needed prize draw technology in a hurry for a charity initiative I hoped to organise. A quick Google search delivered GalaBid into my lap. And it did not disappoint. I submitted an enquiry and immediately heard back from Dee Brannick, one of its founders. She was superb from start to finish helping me set up an incredibly professional looking hosting site that was so easy to navigate both on the back end up & also for our donors. She went above and beyond in helping me, giving guidance as required and being available to answer all my questions. I cannot rate her or the platform highly enough and will be suggesting it to my contacts especially in the charity sector.


GalaBid once again were very helpful and professional in helping support this year's silent auction and raffle as part of our fundraising event. This is the third year in a row we have successfully worked together. Keep up the great work!

Sydney Breast Cancer Foundation

3 yrs now using the Galabid platform and it is seriously the best in the marketplace. Backed by the best onsite, account and management personnel who clearly enjoy what they are doing and are fit for purpose and motivation. It makes the whole Galabid experience easy, efficient and brilliant.

Diverse City Dinner

This auction would not have been the success it was without GalaBid's support. We had a very short time lead to deliver this app, I'd never done one nor a fundraiser before so our auction manager guidance, hints and tips and energy on the day made a massive difference.
