Turning Live Auction Woes into Fundraising Wins

Join Greater Giving and Winspire as we share practical, easy-to-implement ways to create success within a crucial element of your fundraising event: the auction.

Maximize the results of your live auction, sidestep pitfalls and raise more money.

Too many fundraising events suffer from the same few live auction woes: think disorganization among committee members, ineffectively bundled auction packages, items that don’t attract enough bidding, and more.

It doesn’t have to be this way. With expert advice, your organization can raise the bar and wow your donors with premium packages that sell for well over face value.

In an exciting one-hour webinar, Tracey Lorts and Ian Lauth will share a variety of best practices focused solely on turning potential mistakes into big wins for your cause.

Included in this session:

  • Tracey and Ian’s Top 3 Procurement Tips
  • Underwriting & Selling Multiples
  • Best Practices for selling packages
  • Top selling packages in 201
