Top 5 Auction Items And Experiences Raising More In Canada
Have you considered hosting a fundraising auction to help reach your fundraising goals? Fundraising auctions can be an extremely effective way of hitting your fundraising targets and go a long way towards helping you raise more for your cause than ever before. At Givergy, we have supported 1,500 causes with our exclusive silent auction technology in the last year alone, and this has helped us understand that often the hardest part of making sure your silent auction is a success, is sourcing the correct items. Its vital to ensure you have an array of auctions items and experiences that will not only suit your demographic, but also be exciting and at the right price point for your guests.
We have carefully curated a Canadian brochure full of exciting auction experiences, interesting art, exclusive sports memorabilia, and much more to make sure that whoever your audience, there is always something that will spark interest and drive up bidding!
Here are the top 5 best sellers from Givergy’s Canadian auction item brochure from the last month:
1) Fabulous South African 5 Night Safari For 2
The bestselling experience last month was an opportunity for your donors to see and photograph animals that they could only dream of seeing in person. They will return home from this once-in-a lifetime experience with first-hand knowledge of the vastness and raw beauty only found on an African safari.
The all-inclusive package consists of a meet and greet at the airport, transportation, all meals and lodging at the camp, and of course daily game drives! An experience your donors will never forget.
2) Tuscan Villa For 10 People
Italy is renowned for its natural beauty and culinary verve, and the undoubted locus for those qualities are the regions of Tuscany and Umbria.

Our group package is for 10-15 people, where your donors will travel through the spectacular Canadian Gulf islands and the American San Juan islands on a 3-5 hour tour of this breath-taking landscape, accompanied by a resident Wildlife Guide. Your donors will spot these majestic creatures, as they enjoy lunch, snacks and beverages on board and relish a memorable day
