Fundraising Blog

Think differently. It's time to mix up your virtual catalogue.

Keeping your ideas fresh and interesting when organising your silent auction catalogue will inspire your audience and motivate them to give more. The key is to procure items that are handmade, involve exotic locations or offer exclusive, one-of-a-kind experiences. These items should not only aim to generate excitement and capture the interests of your target audience, but ultimately represent the objectives and goals of your organisation. With some creative thinking, the right connections and GalaBid's silent auction software package, ChildFund and The Project Agency were able to produce two incredible campaigns. Here are their stories.

ChildFund's MentorMe Fundraising Auction ChildFund

broke the mould with their latest online only auction campaign, MentorMe. Reaching out to start-up entrepreneurs, financial sector gurus, small business leaders and media moguls like Ann Sherry AO, Cliff Rosenberg, Chris Gray, Sue Ismiel, Jackie Frank, Jason Burrows and Todd Sampson, ChildFund was able to enlist some of Australia's top business leaders to step forward to share their knowledge and, in doing so, to give back to the community. The offering was genius! By auctioning off ten one-hour mentoring sessions with high-profile successful business leaders, supporters were not only given the opportunity to learn invaluable lessons from the business world, but to make a real difference to the livelihood of those living in poverty.   

Petite Collaborations Lundby Dollhouse Project Auction 

Together with The Petite Edit, a local blog dedicated to celebrating inspiring children's brands and creative parents, The Project Agency recently spearheaded a campaign, engaging five of Australia's most respected and talented creatives to design a series of Lundby Dollhouses. Beci Orpin, Lucy Feagins, Jessica Hanson, Madeleine Sargent and the team behind Kip and Co were invited to let their imaginations run wild with their interpretation of the Swedish dollhouse. The result, five beautifully designed works of art and an incredible result. With the aid of GalaBid's silent auction software the Petite Collaboration auction was up 100% on target with all proceeds raised going towards Koala Kids.
