Increase bids? Sign me up, right? Well, let’s start at the beginning. Some nonprofits are still adapting to this ever-changing digital world and trying to figure out if we are online, offline, in-person or a bit of it all! Well, if the last 2 years has taught us anything, it’s best to just incorporate a bit of everything!
Adding an online and virtual aspect to your nonprofit’s in-person fundraising strategy, can help increase your overall donations, awareness and overall funds for your cause. A great way to engage an audience and raise funds are through auctions. Luckily for those of you reading this blog post, FrontStream’s BiddingForGood platform has all your needs covered, plus more!
