It’s time to get creative!

Want to host a really successful non-profit fundraiser?  Want to not only meet your goals, but exceed your goals?  It’s time to get creative, plan ahead and think outside the traditional non-profit fundraising box. Here’s a few thoughts to consider:

1. Forget the restaurant gift cards, gym memberships and low-end charity auction items and showcase something new, something big, something unexpected. Partnering with Charity Fundraising provides you with a risk-free opportunity to showcase items that your guests will love.  Imagine showcasing a one-of-a-kind celebrity autographed movie poster, an autographed guitar signed by Paul McCartney or a VIP experience including tickets to the Super Bowl

2. Afraid to invest in big ticket items for the first time?  With Charity Fundraising, there is no risk to your organization. All of our incredible autographed memorabilia, VIP experiences and vacation packages are offered on a no risk consignment basis, so your organization will receive 100% of the profits. We’re proud to work on the honor system and request no cash, credit cards or deposits up front. Pamela Couvignou, Senior Director of Development for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in San Diego, CA comments, “Working with Charity Fundraising has allowed our events to see double-digit growth over the prior year.”

3. Secure your charity auction items early.  Once you have your charity auction items, it’s time to get creative. With today’s technology it’s easy to create individual videos about each of your charity auction items and share them.  Showcasing and describing the items prior to the event will prepare your guests to bid and create excitement around your event.  Share your videos across your social media channels.  Post them on Youtube and Vimeo.  You can even post a “video of the day” on Facebook leading up to the event.  Videos can also be used on your website and in email blasts to your registered guests.
