Top 10 Reasons to Use No-Risk Auction Items

Top Ten Reasons to Use No-Risk Auction Items
  1. Priceless Experiences: Many of our packages are things you can’t ordinarily access or are available only through Winspire. Because these experiences are priceless and difficult to value, bidders will pay whatever it takes to win them… ultimately making your Nonprofit more money.
  2. Only Buy What You Sell: Your Nonprofit organization is only obligated to purchase packages that reach a minimum auction price set by you and your Winspire Team Member, giving you control over how much you make. If you don’t get the minimum bid on a package, you don’t pay anything to Winspire. This guarantees you profit on items sold and makes all our packages 100% Risk Free.

Posted by Ian Lauth on Jan 13, 2012 2:44:00 AM

With Mardi Gras just around the corner, the city of New Orleans will once again take center stage as one of the biggest parties in the world. While the hustle-and-bustle of this quintessential "N’awlins" experience may be on a lot of people’s bucket lists, for many, a more relaxed visit to this historic and colorful city is probably more appealing. If this is the case, then you may want to consider featuring Winspire’s New Orleans Jazz and Dining Experience in your future fundraising auction.

Big Brothers Big Sisters "Get Their Feet Wet"

Posted by Winspireme on Nov 16, 2011 1:00:00 AM
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berrien & Cass Success Story

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berrien & Cass in Michigan (bbbsofbc.org) recently had a very successful fundraiser they almost didn't go through with due to staffing obstacles. Winspire worked with the organization to get the event in order, discussing various "Bucket List" items they could use to boost revenue and increase the profile of the auction. They enjoyed the concept of "Bucket List" items so much, they decided to name their event the "Time of Your Life Bucket List Evening Auction", and included multiple unique experience packages from Winspire.

The event organizer, Kathryn S. Rossow, was thrilled by how the event turned out and had some kind words she wanted to share...

Winter Season 2011-12: Both Bad News & Good News

Posted by Winspireme on Nov 3, 2011 2:00:00 AM

As the Northeastern U.S. digs itself out of the first major snow storm of the year, we are reminded that winter is on the way.

The Bad News:  according to James Madden from Exacta Weather, a non-profit weather organization comprised of meteorologists from all over the world, “There is a potentially record breaking US winter for 2011 and 2012 with extremely cold temperatures and exceptional levels of snow.”

The Good News: This means another amazing year for winter sports at ski and snowboard resorts throughout North America!

Fairmont Chateau Whistler

Winspire offers a variety of ski-related packages for use in fundraising events.  Among our most popular is Fairmont Chateau Whistler (British Columbia) 3-Night Ski Package. In addition to staying at the famed, ski-in/ski-out Fairmont Chateau Whistler hotel, winning bidders will have three full days to test their ski or snowboarding skills on 8,100 acres of terrain at the Whistler & Blackcomb resorts.  After a full day on the mountain, Whistler Villiage awaits with world class cuisine and a robust after-ski pub scene.
