Online Fundraising Auctions
Adapting to the ever-changing digital world can be a challenge for some nonprofits. However, from what the last two years have shown us, adding online and virtual aspects to your fundraising strategy is now a must. Creating online auctions is a great and easy way to share your fundraising efforts to your followers as well as supporters from all over the globe. Online auctions can help your nonprofit spread your message to a wider audience and increase donations and donor support.
With FrontStream, you will have exclusive access to BiddingForGood, the industry’s largest online cause-minded shopper community. BiddingForGood has helped over 40,000 charities raise donations and expand their reach! In fact, there are over 2.2 million unique visitors to the BiddingForGood’s homepage each year, and a growing community of 1.7 million registered bidders. Nonprofits, like you, can benefit from using an online fundraising platform BiddingForGood to help your organization increase awareness and access new donors from across North America!
Mobile bidding is a paperless way for supporters of your event and organization to bid on auction items right from their smartphones. And who doesn’t have a smartphone these days, anyway? Why not make it easy for them to bid on your auction items using their smartphone or tablet, too? Mobile bidding gives your auction supporters the ability to participate entirely right from their mobile device or smartphone — and from anywhere.
Mobile bidding can attract bidders from all over the world to your auction no matter how big or small.
Investing in the best fundraising technology for your nonprofit can be crucial to your organization’s success!
