Tom Kelly, owner of, turns lemons into lemonade for hundreds of deserving organizations that have paid too much for online auctions.

this school saved somewhere between $18,000 and $40,000 over the competition

In 2007, Tom Kelly visited cyberspace looking for an online auction site that didn’t charge an arm and a leg for its services. Much to his dismay, he didn’t find one.

Today,, Kelly’s brainchild, offers what his competition lacks: zero percentage-of-profit fees and four built-in, unique software systems—for seamless online charity auctions, live event management, donor management, and the selling of event tickets.

The results his efforts are providing to clients have given him an almost-permanent smile.

“I just got word that one of the schools using raised over $200,000. That’s beyond gratifying to learn. I think that’s the record so far, but a lot of users have shared similar happy stories. At $200,000, this school saved somewhere between $18,000 and $40,000 over the competition’s percentage-of-profit online auction sites. That’s huge.”

At, schools, churches, and other nonprofits can run unlimited online auctions all year long at whatever membership level they choose. The membership fee includes a dedicated technician (for the rare times when the user-friendly software scares computer-averse clients, and for any other trouble-shooting that may be needed), a treasure trove of thousands of auction and fundraising ideas, and complete access to the online auction program.

Kelly asserts, “This site is as low-cost to members as they come, while still being state-of-the-art, intuitive and powerful. Now almost any auction can go global as long as the cause resonates globally. And interested parties don’t have to clear their calendars to attend brick-and-mortar auctions, while folks with mobility challenges can get into the game as easily as they can turn on their PCs or access their iPads and iPhones. It really is a game-changer at an affordable price.” is the premier provider of online auctions. Its services are available by subscription; there are no percentage-of-profits fees.
