The GalaBid platform is free to use. We do not charge a service fee for our digital fundraising platform. To cover our costs, we ask your campaign participants to make an opt-out contribution at checkout. This contribution is entirely voluntary.
To use the GalaBid platform, you pay a fixed percentage of the funds raised from your fundraising campaign. We do not ask your supporters to contribute towards our costs. Users who opt for the fixed fee service also get access to a range of additional features and benefits.
Since 2011, GalaBid has been helping fundraisers of all shapes and sizes. From global charities to school fairs, sports clubs to individual fundraisers - GalaBid is trusted by thousands of fundraisers around the world. Our platform is ideal for a wide range of events, including high profile gala dinners, golf days and community fundraising events. GalaBid is also often used for standalone online-only campaigns.
GalaBid’s fundraising platform delivers easy to use online solutions for charitable causes and commercial purposes. From silent auctions to online raffles, our fundraising technology is built to generate amazing returns. A few of the features are:

If the free pricing structure doesn’t quite suit your needs, the fixed percentage pricing is a flexible alternative.
The fixed percentage charge is 4.75%*. This applies to all our fundraising solutions, including auctions. You can choose to cover the costs and deduct from the amount raised by your fundraiser. Or, you can pass the costs onto your fundraiser participants by adding an amount to each bid or donation. The third option is to split the cost between you and your supporters. For example, you may choose to cover 2% of the cost and pass the rest on via an amount added to bids and donations.
If you have corporate sponsorship, you may prefer to use these funds to cover the platform costs. Or you may simply prefer not to ask your supporters to participate in an opt-in feature. Whatever your reasons, fixed pricing offers you the flexibility to structure the platform costs in a way that suits you.
*excludes Stripe charges and costs.
Are you thinking of running an online fundraiser? It can feel a little daunting, right? Where do I start? Will it take lots of my time? Will I raise any money!? Don’t worry. These are all questions most people ask themselves before starting their first online fundraiser
While silent auctions are a great way to raise money, there’s a lot of work involved in booking a venue, organising catering and entertainment, hiring tables and chairs. Plus, finding people to volunteer on the night to help with organisation.
