Share Article

The fundraising game has changed in the past 5-10 years with the rising use of the World Wide Web. While some may be scared of this new change, WeRaiseIt welcomes it with open arms. Hosting an online auction has many benefits not only for donors, but for the pocket as well.

The Internet has changed the way nonprofits and charitable organizations hold fundraising auctions and events. WeRaiseIt has noticed this change and offers the one-stop shop for all online fundraising needs. So why run an online auction?

-First and foremost, save money – One of the biggest concerns with holding an auction is cost. To avoid all of those overhead charges, host an online auction to save money.
-Time is money – Subtract the time it takes on event logistics, with much less work the night of the event. There is no need for setting up tables and chairs, or carrying out the items not sold during the event. Also enjoy a much smoother event registration and close-out at the end of the event.
-Your donors are online – Consumers are spending more of time and money online, shopping, donating, and communicating. Fundraising will be much easier when the auction is where the donors are online.
-Raise money 24/7 – Online auctions enable bidding at any hour, and can be accessed by anyone and everyone whether they are able to attend the live event or not. The online auction is able to raise money before, during and after events. A great tool to maximize online auctions is to promote through social media.
