Keep 100% of the proceeds on all sponsored items! Sponsorships are the perfect way to engage local businesses and out-of-town supporters who can't attend your event.
After selecting experiences for your event, click Get Sponsors from the My Event tab. This takes you to the public-facing item sponsorship page.
Share the sponsorship page with supporters via Facebook, Twitter or email. Supporters may then choose which of your selected items to sponsor.
After your event, simply enter the winning bid information like you would for any other item. Your invoice on the item will be $0 since the sponsor covered your costs.
What's in it for sponsors?
Thanks to our generous providers, sponsors may underwrite experiences at greatly reduced prices. Sponsors pay 30% of retail value for small-ticket items, like golf foursomes, and 50% of retail value for big-ticket items, like vacations.
In addition to tremendous savings, sponsors enjoy special recognition on promotional materials (optional) and a tax deduction. We send their receipt automatically.
What happens if a sponsored item doesn't sell?
If a sponsored item does not sell at the auction, it is yours to gift or use at another event. It is a donation from the sponsor. The expiration dates must be respected, however.
