2012 Annual Meeting: Silent Auction

The meeting also featured our first ever silent auction. The NEFLIN Board of Directors recently established the Jim Morris Scholarship Fund, in the memory of Jim Morris

We are pleased to announce that the auction raised $1,137 for the fund!  

Thanks go to Board members, Brian Nesselrode and Rachel Schipper for coordinating this effort.

Hello there! Thank you for sharing your thoughts about silent auction fundraising in your area. I am glad to stop by your site and know more about silent auction fundraising. Keep it up! This is a good read. I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well.
Often called donor cultivation, relationship building is the foundation on which most fundraising takes place. Most development strategies divide donors into categories based on annual gifts. For instance, major donors are those that give at the highest level of the organization's fundraising scale and mid-level donors are in the middle.
Many attendees are put off by being forced to "fight the crowd" which suppresses bidding.
