Finding Auction Items

28 Dec 2011 By Roger Devine

“Procuring auction items” is often seen as the biggest challenge for a school auction team. Here are three tips that can reduce the stress of searching for auction items; I’ll be coming back to this topic fairly often, so keep checking back.

  1. Register with us for access to the Ultimate Donation Database. It’s completely free to do so, although we would like for you to be a contributor, as well as a user.
  2. Sign up for our email series - Procurement Tips For School Auctions - again, this is completely free, and full of good school auction item ideas.
  3. Use the search engines! Go to Google or Bing or Yahoo and search for “donor request form” - you’ll be amazed at how many companies have a public form you can complete to request auction items.
