Tips for Auction Fundraising Success

Tips for Auction Fundraising Success

Online charity auctions, when coordinated with a golf tournament, are a great way for nonprofit and community organizations to raise money. Not only do charity auctions have tremendous fundraising potential, but they are relatively easy to plan, especially with the help of our easy-to-use auction software. Here are some important tips for fundraising auction success.

Keep in mind that your auction items are one of the biggest factors in determining the success of your auction. The more creative you are in sourcing auction items and the more valuable the auction bidders perceive these items, the more successful you’ll be in your fundraising efforts. Don’t be afraid to purchase auction items. That’s right, not all auction items have to be donated and you are shortchanging your organization if you aren’t willing to consider purchasing items. DoJiggy offers one-of-a-kind vacation packages that you won’t want to miss. These items can be put on reserve and only purchased when you auction them off for a profit. No risk or upfront costs are involved for your organization.

Another important factor is promoting your auction. You can have the rarest of treasures to auction off at your event, but if nobody knows about them, the items do you no good. Use your networks to inform people about the fundraiser. Post an announcement on Social media often, highlight the event on your nonprofit website, send email invitations, and ask volunteers, sponsors, and supporters to spread the word. Issue a press release to local media with information about the charity event, emphasizing how donations will support your cause. Be sure to highlight rare items that will be up for bid, as well as any activities or entertainment that might be part of your live charity auction.
