Silent Auction

Age Group All

Plan a silent auction as a solo event, or add it to an existing fundraising initiative as a supplementary revenue driver.  Reach out to your network to start assembling items but also consider appointing a committee of volunteers who can solicit their contacts for additional gifts. 

By shifting this event to virtual it becomes more accessible to your audience. Promote the auction items in an email blast and on social media to engage attendees, then take advantage of the opportunity to ask for additional donations throughout the event. 

Lakeview Pantry celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2020 by offering supporters the chance to bid on several prizes at their online silent auction. All bidding was submitted online prior to the livestream, and remained open until one hour after the virtual program ended. This allowed all supporters to participate, even if they couldn’t attend the live virtual event.
