Charity Bids, providers of the world’s most advanced auction platform built specifically for non-profit fundraising announced today the launch of Charity Auctions, a Facebook auction app build specifically for non-profits on Facebook.
Charity Bids’ Charity Auctions Facebook application enables non-profits to embed an auction interface into their Facebook page, allowing for bids to be placed directly from within the Facebook environment without users having to leave to another site. Using Facebook’s social media marketing prowess, auction administrators may target specific audiences while fans or supporters have the ability to easily promote the auction to their family and friends.
Used by some of the world’s most recognizable non-profits, corporations and celebrities, Charity Bids is a turn-key web and social media auction platform created exclusively for non-profit fundraising. Charity Bids guides its affiliates through each stage of the virtual auction process, enabling clients to raise funds through the auction of items and experiences either leading up to an event or on a standalone virtual basis and extend their reach to supporters outside of their immediate audience.
Charity Bids also offers its clients a large variety of travel and unique experiential auction packages, including domestic & international vacations, fantasy getaways, luxury properties, adventure expeditions, golf & ski trips, shopping adventures and spa retreats, for use in on-line or live charity auction fundraising events, on a risk free basis, allowing them to purchase only what they sell.
