Welcome to School Zone Podcast with Matt Miller. This week School Zone Podcast is happy to welcome Mike Carran with Charity Valet.
After being in the tech space specifically doing online registration and aggregate registration for tee times and then coaching for 10 years. Mike wanted to use technology to make fundraising easier for teams and schools. Charity Valet.
Understanding that fundraising is typically a hassle, Charity Valet makes it quick and easy to register for charity golf events, online raffles and registration for other events like galas, banquets and casino nights.
Using a leader board, the healthy competition helps maintain momentum in the program. The software tracks and makes sure that students, parents and administration are kept in the loop as far as making sure students have reached their minimums.
If there is a silent auction, Auction Valet is an e-bay type process through mobile phone app that can be used to bid, outbid and set maximum bids from anywhere instead of the traditional way of doing it on site.
For online raffles, Charity Valet also offers virtual games for the organization to use when drawing for a raffle prize winner: Helicopter ball drops where the golf ball closest to the hole wins a prize, or dice where the combination of 4 dice rolled will be the winning raffle ticket number.
Although the technology doesn’t interface directly with social media, all students and parents are given “best practices” email with templates and examples that have been proven effective so they can maximize their fundraising efforts.
Charity Valet sets up the website within an hour, gives training for the fundraising, is ready to begin raising money within hours, and gives administrators access for customization. School keeps 90 percent of fees raised and Charity Valet absorbs the credit card fees.
