KathyFrom the Desk of Kathy Kingston, CAI, BAS

Dear Development Professionals, Auction Committee members, Fundraising Consultants, Board Members, Auctioneers, and Anyone Else Working on A Benefit Auction,

You’ve worked so hard on planning a profitable, fun, engaging – and classy – fundraising auction. You hope it will raise tons of money for a cause that’s dear to your heart. You’ve nailed down several sponsors, selected what you believe are must-have items and developed a guest list of big bidders. red paddle

But you’re terrified that the right supporters won’t show up. Or if they do, they’ll spend the whole time talking – not bidding on your great auction items.

  • Wondering just how many silent and live auction items are just right?
  • Confused how to add an inspiring Fund and Item Appeal.
  • Is your volunteer auction committee burned out?
  • Frustrated about exactly how to effectively ask for money, auction items, sponsorships?
  • Do you wonder how to engage your Board, sponsors and major donors?
  • What if EVERYONE gets too into the party aspect and your charity auction turns into a barn burner (but not the money-making kind? )
  • Worse, are you leaving significant money in the room?

These are valid concerns. There’s no doubt today’s economy can make it more challenging than ever to raise money for nonprofits, schools and charities.

Purse strings are tight. Plus sponsors and potential guests constantly get requests to help with different causes – all of them worthy. So chances are, what worked to bring in donations in the past isn’t working so well anymore. Penguins

You’re battling a changing economy – and a changing industry. So you have do things differently to make your cause stand out – and more importantly— make your next benefit auction a huge success.

Otherwise you’re likely to end up with live auction flops, stagnant silent auctions, distracted guests and little or no money for your charity. That’s something you can’t afford.

The good news is that even in today’s economy, you can create an auction that generates big revenue. In fact, a 2010 Cygnus Donor Survey research report shows 79% of donors plan to give more or at the same level this year as last year.

You just need someone with a proven track record—who knows what’s working now—to share those secrets with you.

That’s where I come in. I’ve developed a program designed to give you all the info you need to make your next auction event a huge success!

But I don’t want you to be at all skeptical. So before I give you all the details, let me tell you a little bit more about myself and how I can help you transform your benefit auction light years ahead…

Kathy KingstonI’m Kathy Kingston, author of the book “Record-Breaking Fundraising Auctions Tips. For the past 25 years I’ve specialized in raising money at fundraising auctions as a professional auctioneer, fundraising auction strategist, auction choreographer, motivator, speaker and consultant.

I also regularly speak on how to maximize fundraising for record breaking benefit and charity auctions. You might have seen me in Auction Network’s one-hour benefit auctions documentary.

Because I love to show others how to do what I do, I often say really I’m an educator who teaches philanthropy using the auction method of fundraising. Dollars in Hands

Most importantly (because the proof is in the results), I’ve raised millions of dollars at fundraising auctions all over the country as a professional benefit auctioneer. And I’ve actually just enjoyed my best 3 years EVER!

I’ve won numerous awards, including the prestigious “Rose Award” from the National Auctioneers Association. Plus, I hold the Certified Auctioneer Institute designation, which has been achieved by only 3 percent of auctioneers nationwide. I hold the professional designation BAS, Benefit Auctioneer Specialist, held by only 130 auctioneers in the world.

Now I want to show you how to have your best charity auction ever!

Still not sure whether “World Class Fundraising Auctions and SOLD! Your Best Benefit Auction Ever” is for you?

If you and I were sitting face to face, you’d be able to ask me as many questions as you wanted. Since we’re not, here are a few of the questions I hear most frequently, and their answers.

Q: An benefit auction is a benefit auction, right? So how can I be sure what you teach me is new? A: Great question! Of course, an benefit auction is an benefit auction. But circumstances have changed with the economy. So if you don’t change your auction fundraising techniques and strategies, you’re going to get left in the dust of those who do.

What I teach you is based in my 25 years’ experience AND in the latest research. You can rest assured that I give you a combination of time-tested techniques and cutting-edge strategies for a profitable event today.

Q: Is it even possible to create a fun auction that also makes money?
A: Yes! Auctions should be fun. That being said, they should also make money. That’s why I teach you how to do both. An auction doesn’t have to be dry or boring.
Find out what you can add to every event to get guests dancing on the tables as they pull out their wallets.They’re going to have so much fun they’re going to want to become long-term supporters.


Q: How can I justify this expense right now when my nonprofit organization is struggling? Wouldn’t my money be better spent?
A: Why risk it? With so much riding on the success of your fundraising auction, you can make a small investment that generates many thousands of dollars at your auction! Scroll down and read the testimonials about how Kathy has taught others for to transform their charity auctions for break-through results.
And remember, you’re covered by my Iron-Clad Guarantee – so if after the first two teleclasses you DON’T feel like the investment is worthwhile, you get your money back! All of it! So you’ve got nothing to lose.

So NOW are you ready?
