From the Desk of Kathy Kingston, CAI, BAS

Dear Development Professionals, Auction Committee members, Fundraising Consultants, Board Members, Auctioneers, and Anyone Else Working on A Benefit Auction,

You’ve worked so hard on planning a profitable, fun, engaging – and classy – fundraising auction. You hope it will raise tons of money for a cause that’s dear to your heart. IT'S A TOUGH JOB.  You hope it will raise tons of money for a cause that's dear to your heart.

red paddleYOU'RE TRYING TO NAIL DOWN several sponsors, selected what you believe are must-have items and developed a guest list of big bidders.

But you're UNDERSTANDABLY TERRIFIED that the right supports won't show up. Of if they do, they'll spend the whole time talking - not bidding on your great auction items.

THIS ISN'T JUST A PARTY - it's the financial foundation of your organization.

Your benefit auction brain is racing - filled with questions -
not sure where to turn for answers.

Benefit Auction Brain

  • Wondering just how many silent and live auction items are just right?

  • Confused how to add an inspiring - and effective - Fund and Item Appeal.

  • Is your volunteer auction committee burned out?

  • Frustrated about exactly how to effectively ask for money, auction items, sponsorships?
  • Do you wonder how to engage your Board, sponsors and major donors?

  • What if EVERYONE gets too into the party aspect and your charity auction turns into a barn burner (but not the money-making kind? ) 

  • Worse, are you worried that - in the past, you've left significant money in the room...and you don't want to make that MISTAKE again?

BENEFIT AUCTIONS ARE BOOMING...if you have the know-how.

EncyclopediaYou just need someone with a proven track record - who knows what's working now - to share those secrets with you.

That's where I come in.

AND POURED IT INTO AN Eighteen-Hour...

Still not sure whether “The No-Brainer Benefit Auction Audio Encyclopedia” is for you?

If you and I were sitting face to face, you’d be able to ask me as many questions as you wanted. Since we’re not, here are a few of the questions I hear most frequently, and their answers.

Q: An benefit auction is a benefit auction, right? So how can I be sure what you teach me is new?
A: Great question! Of course, an benefit auction is an benefit auction. But BEST PRACTICES have changed. What I teach you is based in my 25 years experience AND in the latest research.  YOu can rest assured that I give you a combination of time-tested techniques and cutting-edge strategies for a RECORD-BREAKING FUNDRAISING AUCTION.

Q: Is it even possible to create a fun auction that also makes money?
A: Yes! Auctions should be fun. That being said, they should also make money. That’s why I teach you how to do both. An auction doesn’t have to be dry or boring.

Q: How can I justify this expense right now when my nonprofit organization is struggling? Wouldn’t my money be better spent? 
A: Struggling organizations are exactly who need this information MOST, and they are the precise reason I offer a MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE. I don't want ANY organization to be afraid they'll regret this purchase.
