Reaching new donors is challenging. It can be time-consuming and costly. An online charity auction can be a powerful part of your fundraising mix and help you reach new supporters in a more cost-effective way. By combining new technologies with alternative methods of fundraising, an online auction is an innovative way to raise money, increase awareness for your cause and organization, diversify communication, and expand your non-receipted donor base.
Online auctions break the barriers of time and geography and allow charitable organizations to reach a broader audience. Online auctions also offer a more quantifiable value proposition to donors and sponsors. They dramatically expand the marketing reach for organizations, creating a greater awareness of the cause and a greater fundraising capability.
An online auctions provides a fresh new way to stimulate your existing donors, introduce your organization to new supporters, and increase fundraising revenue.

SCHOOLS, TEAMS & GROUPS
An online auction is a great way for schools, alumni, teams, and other groups to raise money in the community and beyond. Bake sales are great – but an online auction will bring your fundraising to a whole new level. You decide whether to make it a private auction only visible to who you invite or a public auction where anyone can bid.
eBay is of course a great way to run your group’s online auction, however we’ve found that our branded auction website platform better suits most schools, teams and groups. The greater flexibility with our auction platform tends meet their needs better. Also it is less expensive with no ongoing seller fees.
Our focus is to maximize exposure, create a buzz, and nurture relationships while generating revenue. Put simply, we successfully help companies build sales and brand awareness through online auctions. A high-profile auction, particularly when a cause is included, brings the same attention and excitement as promotional contest. Product launches, movie releases, limited edition lines, and more!
We’ll create an end-to-end project plan that will act as the blueprint and guideline for the entire auction promotion. This project plan will cover all elements of the event with a detailed time-line for key milestones. We liaise with all participating partners to ensure all elements of the event adhere to, and effectively communicate, their respective brands.
