Full Case Study


Because of the pandemic, Junior Achievement of Northern California decided to livestream their annual gala and turn it into a virtual silent auction event. They needed a way for participants to bid virtually during the auction portion of their virtual gala. They also needed an auction platform that made managing registration and item inventory simple and straight forward.


Junior Achievement of Northern California was no stranger to auctions, but needed a different solution from what they’d used in the past. Their ideal auction tool needed to be user friendly for staff and guests, integrate with their CRM, and come with top-notch customer service. They had already been using Qgiv for their year-round giving forms and knew about Qgiv’s exceptional customer service. They requested a demo of the auction platform and found that it met all of their needs.


Their event was a tremendous success. Junior Achievement of Northern California raised more than $337,000 (112% of their $300,000 fundraising goal!) and attracted 199 unique participants.
