By taking the admin and labor off of their hands, nonprofits have the chance to focus on deeper relationship building, which can often lead to raising even more money once an auction closes and new connections are made.
Thanks to the direction and strategic calendar provided by Charitybuzz, we push ourselves to obtain auction items in new genres and ultimately increase our budget numbers throughout the year.
As our 2020 Man + Woman Of The Year campaign kicked off, COVID-19 did as well. With Charitybuzz' guidance, we were able to quickly pivot and focus our efforts on new ideas like virtual experiences. In the end, we actually had our best ever year on Charitybuzz' platform, grossing $1.2 million for leukemia and lymphoma research.
Our partnership with Charitybuzz lifts up our chapters, providing them with meaningful funding to support their efforts of empowering kids with character building programs. Proceeds from this auction will enable them to maintain safe programs and provide quality coaches who mentor and lift up our kids and teens.
[Charitybuzz] offers the opportunity to make your auction virtual and expose it to a new set of donors looking for extraordinary experiences.
