Toronto, ON., October 6, 2015: FrontStream Inc, a leading provider of integrated philanthropy solutions for nonprofits and corporations, is pleased to offer two exciting BiddingForGood tools to Canadian non-profits and businesses. The Auction Manager Pro platform helps organizations manage innovative charitable events and auctions, while the Automated Item Request System (AIRS) is an in-kind donation platform for corporations who want to improve how they support good causes.

It has never been easier for Canadian organizations to manage a live, silent or online auction or for Canadian companies to donate products and services to these groups!

BiddingForGood is the most widely recognized platform in the world for online auctions, mobile bidding, in-kind donation management, and event ticketing.

With BiddingForGood’s Auction Manager Pro, Canadian organizations can now:

• Build a branded, mobile-optimized auction homepage
• Solicit, manage, preview, and sell items online
• Use templates to build emails and schedule email blasts
• Process transactions in CAD or USD currencies
• Run, view and export reports at any time
• Reconcile and process payments for winning bids online instead of on-site

Auctions often go hand-in-hand with galas or special events. Auction Manager Pro makes event management simple for nonprofit professionals. With BiddingForGood event tools, charities will be able to:

• Sell tickets to a charitable event online
• Use a table seating tool to plan room layout
• Track ticket sales, item sales, and donations
• Allow guests to bid from their smartphones or tablets

Many charitable organizations benefit from generous donations of office supplies, travel points, discounted services, and other similar gifts from their corporate partners. BiddingForGood’s AIRS system is the most efficient way for CSR teams to manage these donation requests.

AIRS allows charities to visit a business’s custom donation page and easily submit a request for in-kind donations or sponsorships. Integrated sponsor management tools ensure that charities can keep track of sponsors and recognize corporate generosity on event day.

With BiddingForGood’s AIRS system, Canadian companies can:

• Build a branded item request page with custom content
• Add marketing or segmentation questions to a donation page
• Automatically approve or decline donation requests
• Easily email charitable partners inside the system
• Set up staff alerts throughout the donation process
• Easily manage a company’s charitable giving budget

Best of all, BiddingForGood tools are integrated with the popular FrontStream GiftWorks CRM, ensuring that donor data is all in one place.

“We know that the Canadian nonprofit sector struggles with separate software platforms that are not configured for their needs. FrontStream’s solution ensures a flawless event management experience, making life so much easier for administrators. With FrontStream’s system, good causes can spend more time focusing on what they do best: Changing the world,” states Nina Vellayan, President and Chief Executive Officer of FrontStream.
