The ClickBid Difference

Over 20+ years of working with nonprofits, it’s no accident that ClickBid offers a one time flat fee instead of a “free with fee” pricing model. We feel it’s the perfect blend of cost and benefits to our nonprofit clients. Once you have paid your annual license, you should be free to raise as much money as possible without paying more for the platform. The challenge with “free” or “platform fee” models is that you and/or your donors will continue to pay whenever a transaction occurs. It’s ironic really because you never stop paying with free platforms.

Step Three: Raise!

With your first event set up, you're ready to engage and raise more money. Best of all, there's no more $$ to spend on multiple events. The road ahead of you is wide open for maximizing your donor experiences and raising more funds.
