How does it work?
We are quite often asked how it all works. Below is a step by step guide to how our Silent Auction service can raise funds for you!
Step 1 – Consultation
After discussing the details of your event with you, one of our Fundraising Consultants will offer advice as to which fundraising service will be best suited for your event.
Step 2 – Pre Event Form
If you decide that our Silent Auction service is best suited for your event we will send you one of our quick and easy pre event forms to fill out.
Step 3 – Auction Brochure
The week before your event we will send you a draft of the Silent Auction brochure to review and sign off. At this stage you will be able to make any amendments you wish.
Step 4 –Auction Set Up
On the day of your event we will arrive 2 hours before the scheduled start time and set up the auction display & place the Silent Auction brochures around the venue.
Step 5 – The Auction
Your Event Manager will run your silent auction from start to finish. The auction can be scheduled to fit in with other planned proceedings and will run seamlessly in the background.
Step 6 – Payment Collection
After the silent auction has ended, your Event Manager will collect all card and cash payments from the winning bidders.
Step 7 – Auction Analysis
After your event, we will send you an itemised spreadsheet. This will include the winning bidders’ details, winning bid amounts & total raised.
Step 8 – Funds Transfer
All funds raised will be securely transferred to your chosen account within 7 working days.
