Auction Certificates

The nonprofit cost for a certificate is proportional to the winning bid amount, which we ask you to report after your auction. You’ll keep at 40%, 60%, or 80% of the winning bid amount, depending on the item. If the item doesn't sell, you won't owe anything.

The starting bid and percentage you'll keep display for each experience.

You can pay by credit card, PayPal or check. A 3% fee applies to credit card and PayPal transactions.

Examples

Let's look at some common examples of TravelPledge experiences:

Winning Bid

You Keep

You Pay

Golf Foursome

$1,200 (60%)

You won't owe anything on items that don't sell.

Keep Even More

You'll keep 100% of the winning bid in excess of the retail value.

Suppose you auction a vacation with a retail value of $2,000 where you keep 60% of the winning bid. If the winning bid is $3,000, you'll owe only $800 (40% of $2,000).

Use the Donation Calculator to see how much you'll keep at each winning bid amount.


Raffle Certificates

You may purchase raffle certificates in advance of your drawing for 15%, 30%, or 50% of the retail value, depending on the item.
