The Benefits Of Fundraising Auctions

Tuesday, December 8th, 2015

If you are looking for a great way to raise money for a fundraiser, holding an auction is a great solution. Participating in auctions can be fun and can raise thousands of dollars for your organization quickly. Fundraising auctions can be fun and simple, and can benefit donors as well as charity organizations. Auctions are also great for fundraisers because they can be held online, which benefits organizations, donors, and buyers alike.

Fundraising auctions can be simple and fun

Though putting together a fundraising event can take up to six months, it can be less of a hassle than other forms of fundraising. Fundraising auctions can be exciting events that the entire town can attend. These events also include catered food, ideally donated by a local restaurant or organization, as well as entertainment. People enjoy attending auctions and being part of the excitement, which could potentially bring more donors and buyers.

Fundraising auctions can benefit donors

Many fundraisers, like school bake sales, may not benefit donors directly because these events only benefit the fundraiser itself. Holding a fundraising auction allows donors to give items or services, essentially providing free advertising for their business. This bonus should make it easier to get businesses to donate items to auction. Another bonus that donors receive is the tax break they get for donating items and services to charity events. Although both of these benefits are not instant, they can be great incentives for businesses to take part in fundraising auctions.

Fundraising auctions can be held online

These days, people are busy and may not be able to make it to fundraising events in person. When holding a fundraising auction, you can put some of the items online to auction off. Online auctions allow people who are not able to attend the event in person to put their bids with those who can attend. Paying for items from an online auction makes the process easier for charity organizations, donors, and buyers. Holding fundraising auctions online also ensures you will not miss out on potential purchasers that can’t show up for your actual auction.
