May 2012 Donation Give-Away Winner

We are thrilled to announce the winner of the May 2012 Donation Give-Away! Connie Mattos is excited to be donating the Fairmont Scottsdale 2-Night Stay with Championship Golf to the Child Advocacy Center in Fort Collins, CO for use in their next fundraiser. The Child Advocacy Center is a Nonprofit whose mission it is to reduce trauma to children and their families through a comprehensive response to child abuse.

Child Advocacy Center

From the CAC website, www.larimercac.org:

"Our vision is to eliminate child abuse through prevention and education. Where we cannot, all victims will receive comprehensive and compassionate services from an effective team of professionals."

The CAC conducts forensic interviews with children who have allegedly been abused, or who have been possible witnesses to violent crimes; provides support services, mental health and medical exam referrals to families; holds community trainings on child abuse issues; conducts both a school (Talking About Touching) and community based (Steward’s of Children) prevention program.

Connie has been involved with the CAC since 1997, first as a board member for 7 years, then as a volunteer on different projects. She served as auction coordinator for the Bocce y Bella Sera fundraiser for 10 years.

"I have loved being able to help, even in a small way, to ensure that the Center continues to be a viable part of our community and continues to help child victims and their families."  - Connie Jennings

Winspire would like to congratulate both Connie and the Child Advocacy Center for winning the May Donation Give-Away, and wish them all the best moving forward.

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.
