When planning and hosting a fundraising event, there are many decisions to be made and tasks to complete. While it is possible to plan an event single-handedly, it certainly is not ideal.

An effective committee takes the stress off the individual at the helm and provides support for decision-making, organization, and task management.

Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest usually plans on hosting a gala event in the summer and an online auction in the fall. Taking precautionary measures due to COVID-19, they switched the events and began planning to use an online auction sooner than planned. Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest was concerned about the success of an online auction and meeting their fundraising goal based on the potential number of attendees, listing too many items, lack of engagement and the possible difficulties attendees may encounter when needing to use technology to participate.
When the COVID-19 pandemic shut down all events across the country, the St. Mary’s School Ball and Auction planning committee members were unsure what to do. What could they do with no in-person options for hosting their annual benefit gala? The school relies heavily on these funds to supplement their budget, revitalize school buildings and grounds, and provide necessary upgrades for a growing student body.

In 2019, more than 25% of the world’s population was shopping online. The number one reason for this phenomenon? It’s convenient! Shoppers are able to browse and purchase their favorite products at any time of day — whenever it best fits their lifestyle and schedule. The great news for you is that shopping online is no longer just for retail therapy. Online Auctions with Auction Frogs help you leverage the age of ecommerce to maximize donations for your organization.
Traditional payment methods, such as cash and cheque, are also waning in popularity. The Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco reported that cash was used in only 26% of transactions in 2018 compared to 30% in 2017. This trend is reflected in how donors give to nonprofits as well, with the use of cash declining and contactless spending rising.
