From bake sales and raffles, to community fairs and swanky galas, there are countless ways to raise both money and awareness for meaningful causes of all shapes and sizes.
Through online auctions over hosted over the internet, charities and nonprofits can reach not only more people from all corners of the globe, but, they can also raise more money than usually is collected from a bake sale.
Online auctions are a cost-effective way for charities to expand their reach and engage supporters willing to donate but who for reasons of geography or other conflicts find themselves unable to attend the annual gala or other live event.
Who benefits from online fundraising auctions?
Consider the mom who decided she’d had enough with sponsoring bake sales and car washes. She held an online fundraising auction to raise money to buy Spanish language dictionaries for her child’s high school class. They raised $32,000 – more than triple their usual success!
Or consider the health foundation researching remedies for a debilitating disease. Its online fundraising auction brought in $44,000, and expanded the universe of those who are aware of their work by thousands.
There are hundreds of stories that show online fundraising auctions are win-win propositions, benefiting charities and consumers alike. And because they are so much fun, and donors leave with real items and not just a cash receipt, the bidders typically consider their online auction give as outside their usual yearly budget for charitable giving.
The winners when you use an online auction:
Nonprofits – Benefit from online fundraising auctions because they can raise more money, reach a broader audience, and reduce the cost of planning a live event.
Bidders – They benefit from giving twice – once with a gift for themselves and once to the charity.
Sponsors – By putting a fundraising auction online, and building traffic to the website, some companies might want to sponsor the site, so they not only have the halo of supporting a good cause but enjoy the online exposure to a targeted audience.
