Creative auction fundraising ideas for exciting and profitable fundraising events.
Auction fundraisers are fun, exciting and can raise significant funds for your nonprofit organization.
Auctions and silent auctions are not simple or easy fundraising ideas however. They need to be well organized and heavily promoted in order to be a success.
But... the time spent will be well worth it, both for the enjoyment factor of your attendees and donors, as well as for the financial rewards for your school, church, or charity.
This auction fundraiser is a huge money-maker, mostly because raising babies is so expensive. Manufacturers of diapers, baby formulas, baby foods and baby products are happy to make generous donations because they know that parents will continue to buy their products for a long time.
Soon-to-be-parents, grandparents and family friends are also happy to take out their checkbooks and credit cards to bid on the baby shower items as they know these are purchases they will be making in any case. It really is a win-win situation.
These are some of the baby shower auction items that are sure to attract high bids and help make your fundraiser a great success.
Of course items like baby toys, books and music for babies will do well too and round out your item offerings at your baby shower auction or silent auction charity event.
