With restrictions on large in-person gatherings still in place, you may have recently made the decision to take this year’s auction online. Many of your colleagues have been successfully hosting virtual auctions on various platforms. Take a look at what’s out there and dive right in—and thank you to our colleagues on the Animal Welfare Events Group for getting this list started!

Bidding for Good
From a colleague posting in The Association’s Facebook group: “Bidding for Good offers good support and lots of reach beyond your current supporters, with high fees of $600/year.”
From the Facebook group: “I adore GiveSmart! I have used it for a number of different types of organizations and it is so easy, anyone can do it. Not the cheapest option, that’s for sure, but if you want quality, it delivers.”
From one shelter using this platform: “Greater Giving is a life saver!”
From the Facebook group: “Low flat-fee up front.”
