Auctions can be a great way to raise funds and visibility for your organization. We have created a two-part workshop that is perfect for development directors, development coordinators, and volunteer committee chairs.

The morning session will focus on the steps of getting an auction started. The afternoon session will take a more advanced look at your strategies and fundraising. Each session will look at case studies and examples of “dos” and “don’ts” of planning.
