An online auction: If you set up a purely online auction you can avoid the cost of a large event auction. Our auctions are very flexible so you’re able to have lots ending at different times. You’ll be kept in the loop with the status of your lots via pop-ups and email, reducing the administration for you.

An event: if you have the budget to organise a event such as a Ball or Dinner; create the buzz and sell tickets online through our ticketing page, then why not use a jumblebee auction at the event. You can either have an online auctions ending at your event where your guests can bid from their smartphones. Or go for the full package live event auction with iPads, TVs and an A/V package to make bidding more fun leading to the funds raised more plentiful.

Run a online raffle. A super easy option and a great way to get people involved with your fundraising.

More community feel good: increasingly, we live our lives online, so our online tools will see your supporters and friends sign up, bid, buy and sell items. Push your fundraising on your social media, use the #jumblebee and we can publicise it on your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
