Aging Generation Using Technology

The face of non-profit fundraising and charitable giving has been evolving significantly over the past decade and fortunately fundraisers have many resources at their disposal to better understand donor habits and motivators.

Technology plays an increasingly central role in connecting people of all ages to news and information, government services, health resources, and opportunities for social support, these divisions are noteworthy—particularly for the many organizations and individual caregivers who serve the older adult population.

Seniors have historically been late adopters to the world of technology compared to their younger compatriots, but their movement into digital life continues to deepen. This could be due to older adults facing several unique barriers and challenges when it comes to adopting new technologies. These include physical challenges to using technology, sceptical attitudes about the benefits of technology and difficulties learning to use new technologies.

These concerns need to be taken into account when you are organizing a fundraising event that will have an electronic auction and where many seniors will attend as they might be concerned about whether or not they will be able to understand and use the technology. This is where Ezybidz will help you and your charity. Bidding with our unique electronic auction technology is very easy; guests will receive a welcome message with a link to their own personal bidding page and then the fun can begin! The personal bidding page allows guests to view items, place bids and make donations. Bids take seconds to place and if someone bids on the same item, guests receive instant outbid alerts direct to their phones. If any of your guest are not in possession of a smart phone, Ezybidz will provide Ipads with the same technology and staff to assist with bidding.

Also, Ezybidz will provide several professional staff members who have experience with the technology and are there to support and help those who have any questions.
