Top 5 Auction items And Experiences Raising More In The US
Hosting a fundraising auction can be an efficient way of hitting your fundraising goals and raising more for your cause. After supporting 1,500 causes with silent auction technology in the last year, we understand that often the hardest part of making sure your fundraising auction is a success, is getting your hands on exclusive auction items that will entice your guests to bid.
While relying on your generous partners and donors can go a long way in boosting your item portfolio, its vital to ensure you have an array of items and experiences to suit your demographic. A lack of carefully procured auction items could hinder your chances of meeting your fundraising target.
