Curating your fundraising auction prize list is something of an art. The prizes need to whet bidders’ appetites, have broad appeal and cover a range of price points. Although it can be time consuming, curating a great prize range is worth the effort. It means lots of healthy bids and, ultimately, more funds for your cause. But how do you know what prize items will sell best? With over 20 years’ helping charities and non-profits manage their fundraising auctions we know which items always generate a bidding frenzy.
We know that holidays are a consistent hit at fundraising auctions. Who doesn’t get excited at the prospect of a getaway to somewhere fabulous? While holidays are guaranteed to get bidders’ pulses racing, the trick is to offer a range of experiences that appeal to both the thrill and the chill seekers. GalaBid’s NEW prize update consists of consignment options perfect for people who relish the element of surprise. Our Tasmania adventure gives auction winners the freedom of the open road, while our mystery cruise offers relaxation and indulgence via a luxury liner.
GalaBid is committed to delivering innovative technology that maximises fundraising returns to non-profits and charities. We’re constantly reviewing our digital auction platform to ensure it offers our clients a best-in-class experience. It’s why we’re thrilled to announce the arrival of our brand NEW fundraising technology. Built from the ground up, our development team has worked tirelessly for over a year to hone the perfect platform.
At the end of last year we told you about our 2018 initiative to sponsor two children, one in Zambia and one in Uganda. Through charitable organisations, Zambia’s Childand School For Life, we’ll be helping the children access education and associated support to secure a positive future for them and their communities. We’ll receive regular updates about how the children are progressing and we’re looking forward to sharing their experiences with you.
Last year we introduced you to our fabulous New Zealand team and some of the terrific projects they were working on. 2017 was a successful year for GalaBid’s NZ fundraising partners. Cathy Taylor and her team worked hard to help lots of charities and non-profits beat their event fundraising targets.
