Would you like to get rid of your auction?
Is your board or Executive Director insisting that you do an auction at your event?
This week’s video is different from other Movie Monday episodes. It’s actually a video clip pulled from the set of videos made at the Nonprofit Storytelling Conference. Here’s why I’m featuring this clip.
A woman who came to the conference asked if I could provide her with this clip. She wanted to show the video to her board so they would see why their auction was hurting their fundraising.
Then, I was giving a storytelling workshop for the United Way and this same subject came up. I told folks what you are about to hear in the video, and everyone seemed so relieved. There was a collective sigh in the room.
Auctions are a lot of work.
So, if you’d like to make them more donor focused, or get rid of your auction all together, then watch Shanon Doolittle in this week’s video. Your whole perspective on auctions will shift in the two and a half minutes it takes for you to watch the video. Feel free to pass this on to board members or anyone else.
If you’d like to meet Shanon, and asks her questions in person, come to the Nonprofit Storytelling Conference. Click to learn more.
If you have a story or any advice to share around putting on auctions (or not putting on auctions), please share it in a comment box below the video. Thanks.
