Over the course of 12 years I was responsible for the entire front-end design and development of BiddingForGood's product line that encompassed a consumer shopping portal and an auction and event management platform used by over 10,000 non-profit organizations helping them to raise millions of dollars.


The BiddingForGood portal is where all the non-profit organizations that are running auctions are aggregated into one place so that 1.7M cause-minded bidders can access the portal to participate in auctions to support charities they care about.

A definite highlight is how user-friendly the auction tools are. Each year it gets easier and the auction gets bigger. We’ve exceeded our goals every auction.

Auction Homepage

Non-profits use the auction manager to create a branded homepage to feature items up for bid, sell tickets, promote the live event and showcase sponsors.
