The weather is getting colder, the days shorter, and the holidays are right around the corner. Over the next few weeks, your donors will spend countless hours shopping online for the PERFECT gift for their loved ones. Every year, these gift givers spend days or often weeks surfing the web with so many options, all of which seem to be generic or not just right and by the time they find a gift they believe the recipient will like, are forced to pay a fortune in express shipping as they anxiously await to see if the items will arrive before the holiday. Help your donors give a hassle-free, one-of-a-kind gift that the recipients will LOVE this holiday… all while benefiting your cause!
This holiday season raise funds for your organization through a NO COST Holiday Auction. When looking for a gift for the holidays, gift givers want something that the recipient is going to be able to enjoy for a long time to come. Autographed memorabilia are the perfect gifts because they can be enjoyed time and time again and not to mention, there’s all kinds of memorabilia for every person out there! Whether you’re a fan of sports, movies, TV, politics or history, Sports Collectibles has unique items that will blow away your donors and their loved ones this holiday.
So how exactly do these holiday auctions work?
NO RISK, NO COST, ALL REWARDS
Sports Collectibles offers the auctions at no cost to the non-profit. We take care of everything including preparing the items, framing the products, and shipping the items securely to the winning bidders. This makes it purely a no risk, all reward auction!
Each piece of memorabilia provided for the auction comes on consignment. There are no consignment or set up fees to the non-profit for Sports Collectibles online auctions. If the items sell, your organization makes money. If the items do not sell, we simply put them back into stock to sell at a later date.
WHAT GOES INTO EACH HOLIDAY AUCTION?
Sports Collectibles hand picks items in high demand this holiday season, as well as top selling items that are location specific to where your donors are located.
WE HANDLE THE SETUP:
Sports Collectibles takes care of getting these items framed, professionally photographed and preparing all the data ready for upload into the BidPal platform. You simply enable the auction to go live through your OneCause account and share the auction with your supporters.
WHEN SOMEONE PLACES A BID, HOW DO THEY GET THEIR ITEM?
These items are set aside in our warehouse prior to the start of each auction, ready to be securely packed and shipped within 1 business day of the close of auction. Your organization provides us with the shipping information of the winning bidders or to your organization, for bidders that would like to pick up. All items are then shipped to each winner and arrive within 5 business days of the auction end, safely and securely. Tracking information is provided to your organization and each winning bidder for them to eagerly track their soon-to-be best gift they will give this year!
MAKE IT AN ALL-AROUND AUCTION!
Non-profits are encouraged to add gift cards, vacations, or other items from their local communities (i.e. gym memberships & couple massages) to the auction to make it a one-stop-shop for multiple gifts this holiday season.
