Free charity auction newsletter launches

Starting this month, the authors of “Going¦Going¦Gone!”, the guidebook on successful auctions for non-profits, will distribute a free e-mail newsletter full of information, news, tips and tools about fundraising charity auctions.

Published once a month, each issue will include concise and helpful hints on topics of interest to development directors, special event managers and volunteers engaged in the auction process. These will include:

  • How to obtain and utilize volunteers.
  • Unique acquisitions that create the most interest and sell for the

    highest amounts.

  • What items consistently sell and what items should be avoided.
  • The role of the computer in the modern auction.
  • How to close an auction efficiently and avoid long lines at checkout.
  • The role of the internet in event fundraising with leads to the best sites.
  • Tax, insurance and legislative updates.
