Big Brothers Big Sisters "Get Their Feet Wet"

Posted by Winspire
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.

“I want to thank you especially for shepherding me through the process. Once I 'got my feet wet' it was smooth sailing from there onward. I plan to promote Winspire at our next state meeting of Big Brothers Big Sisters organizations. We so much appreciate your great support of the work we do here with children. Many thanks and I’m quite sure we’ll get involved with Winspire again next year."

Strategy that Can Double & Triple Revenue from One Auction Item

Consignment travel packages can be extremely lucrative for your nonprofit, providing the ability to sell incredible trips multiple times, at no risk to you or your organization. Doing so benefits your event in three ways: Increase revenue: Double, triple, or quadruple your profit on a single package. It's a win-win: Making Bidders happy means making your nonprofit happy. Capture secondary bidders: Why have one winner when you can have multiple? Having more than one of the same auction items means there is no second place. Doubling up enables your auctioneer to capture additional revenue from more people.   It's easier to pull off than you might think! There are unlimited ways to sell multiple no-risk consignment travel packages at any point of your event timeline—before, during, and after—that doesn't take any extra procurement on your part and costs nothing if items do not sell. Read on for the strategies our nonprofit clients have used to double, triple, even quadruple their revenue on a single package to raise a lot more for their cause.
