Today, we are proud to announce that our newest fundraising platform “Paying It Forward Fundraising” is launching in Twin Falls Idaho in several locations across the city. The auctions benefit the United Way, the Boys & Girls Club and the Boy Scouts of Twin Falls.
What is “Paying It Forward Fundraising”? Over the past several years, many people have come to me and said that we should start placing Silent Auctions in restaurants, hotels and businesses. But, due to our rapidly expanding company and time being a very precious commodity; we weren’t in a position to move forward with it.
However, recently, I met a fantastic family who are from Utah & Idaho – The Pierce’s. After meeting with Brad Peirce, I could see the fire and passion in his eyes to help our company help charities all across North America. He quickly began to help charities in Idaho and wanted to learn more. I was then introduced to his family. They too wanted to help and were passionate about doing whatever they could to be a part of our company. There was no better group of fine, good hearted people to help launch this platform across the United States.
“Paying It Forward Fundraising” allows charities and businesses to set up a Silent Auction with the “Buy It Now” ability in restaurants, hotels, businesses etc. The charity or business owner sets the margin or profit percentage above the cost to nonprofit. There is absolutely no cost that the charity or business incurs nor do they have to do anything but provide wall space.
All the charity or business owner should do, but does not have to, is to promote the Silent Auction. Since it benefits our charity partners, the charity should promote the Silent Auction to their supporters and through the Social Networks. That’s it.
The “Paying It Forward Fundraising” Auction will be set up for at least two (2) weeks. Our staff will monitor and collect the bid sheets, contact the buyers, process the payments and ship out the items to all the winning bidders. 100% of the proceeds then go directly to the charity.
If a Business Owner would like to help a local charity, they tell us who the local charity is so that we can post it on the notice which is beside the auction. At the end of each auction, our staff will present a large check with the proceeds written on it in the name of the selected charity. This is an excellent opportunity for businesses to help their local community. They can Press Release their efforts and post photos of the check presentation to the charity on the social networks and in local news.
The auctions carry a wide array of Décor items ranging from Sports, Celebrity, Historical and Music while also offering incredible Travel & Vacation Packages. The auctions give your guests and those visiting your business a sense of satisfaction knowing they are helping a local charity while also having the ability to purchase an item that is not sold at retail anywhere.
