What is a Benefit/Fundraising Auctioneer?

The goal of a Benefit or Fundraising Auctioneer is to engage an audience, entertain a bit, and generate funds to help support the organization.

Our Level of Involvement – Benefit Auctioneers assist their clients in a lot of ways. Depending on the level of involvement with the organization or non-profit, a Benefit Auctioneer can assist with aspects of consulting leading up to the event, and the auction on event day. Some areas of assistance include:

  • Assisting with event’s flow to maximize fundraising

  • Selection of items in silent vs. live auctions

  • We can help secure trusted commissioned items

  • Assisting with added revenue generators (games, activities, etc.)

  • Serve as Emcee

  • Optimizing live appeal income

  • Heighten audience participation

  • Bid calling for the event

  • Putting more FUN in the fundraising

Assistance with Audience Understanding – We help our clients understand the different types of fundraising for different audiences. For example, an audience necessary for a fire hall fundraiser is different than an audience for a gala, both are necessary, but understanding the difference will make the event more successful.

Hire a Professional Fundraising Auctioneer – When an organization hires a professional Benefit Auctioneer, they are hiring a person with more experience and education specifically directed to helping to raise funds. Whether it is for a small community school, or a national organization, the professional fundraising Auctioneer knows how to bring the event to a higher level of success.
