We Help Groups...Raise Needed Cash...For Good Causes
Is Your Group Seeking To Raise Funds?

Fundraising Auctions today are more popular than ever before. As governmental and private funding continues to shrink, Fundraising Auctions represent a fast and fun approach to raising much-needed funds for nearly every type of group or cause. You can raise thousands of dollars in a single day or evening...while putting on an event that is fun for your group and supporters. And when you conduct a Fundraising Auction, you are not simply asking for money. Rather, you are providing a tangible product or service in exchange for your funding. It becomes a win-win situation for your organization and its supporters.

What Takes Place at a Fundraising Auction? Most successful Fundraising Auctions consist of anywhere between 30-150 different items that have been donated by group supporters or local merchants. At the designated time, a professional Auctioneer calls the Auction to order and sells each item, using a fast-paced, and fun selling technique. At the conclusion of the Auction, successful bidders pay for their merchandise. The total amount raised, less expenses, represent your group's "profit". And since most of the merchandise sold has been donated, Fund Raising Auction profits are typically quite high. Silent Auctions, Sell Agains, Admission Fees, Raffles, 50-50's, and the Sale of Food or Beverages can all add to the event's profitability.

Presentation AND Fundraising Auction for your Group

How about combining one of your meetings into a fundraising event for your group? Here the concept. The overall event lasts about one hour. After Mike provides a 20-25 minute "Let's Have An Auction" presentation, he can "sell" to your group, in a Fundraising Auction format, anything you want sold. You keep all the funds…and your group has a fun and worthwhile event.

We think the description below outlines this event pretty well, but if you have any questions, call us at (215)-345-6094.

Let's Have An Auction:

The world is changing all around us and the Auction business is no exception. Computers, the Internet, eBay & other On-Line Auctions, Digital Cameras, Blackberries, PayPal, E-Commerce, Google & other Search Engines, WiFi Internet Connections, and Auction Sniping have all changed the way that Auctions do business. In this 20-25 minute session Michael Ivankovich will take you from the earliest beginnings of the Auction Industry to the state-of-the-art 21st century Auction technology.

Need a Fundraising Idea For Your Group? Never been to an Auction?

That will change after this presentation when Michael Ivankovich conducts a live Auction for your group. And here's an idea on how you can raise some additional money for your group. Have each member attending the meeting bring in something that can be sold…Baked Goods (e.g., cookies, cakes, pies, or dinner), A Basket of Cheer (e.g., snacks, wine, a specialty foods), Personal or Professional Services (a tutoring lesson, a meal or catered dinner, a portrait or family original artwork by an artist, professional photography services from a photographer, a needed household service such as cleaning, running errands, weeding a garden, babysitting, etc.)…Used-But-Sellable Items (children's clothing, toys, books, but no junk, etc.). You decide what works best for your group. Then, after Mike concludes his 20-minute Auction presentation, he'll "sell" all of the items that have been donated to the members in attendance. And your group will keep 100% of what is sold. Auctions are meant to be fun and in this one-hour session Michael Ivankovich will show you how much fun Auctions can be.
