We are delighted to announce that since our auction item relaunch just six months ago, our team have surpassed the £1 Million charity profit mark, an increase of 65% from 2016 in just 169 days! This means that charities have made £6,237 every single day since April 2017 using the Givergy item collection alone!
The Givergy auction item collection was relaunched in April 2017 and has been carefully sourced to help support fundraising initiatives by appealing to a variety of tastes and budgets, which includes holidays, sports memorabilia, experiences and much more! This, partnered with a new ethical pricing model that allows for charities to benefit even more, has helped raise a substantial figure in a very short amount of time!
We have also launched an elite range brochure that includes high-end auctions including a private plane to Reims, and an opportunity to meet the Pope to name a few! This range has seen significant interest and charities are seeing the benefits of high ticket items and the profit that they can bring.
We’re always looking to make sure that the auction item brochures are refreshed with new and exciting items, that are moulded to each region that we operate within around the globe. Our team has listened to all the feedback we have received to make this possible, and we believe that we are now in a fantastic position to raise more for life changing causes than ever before!
“We’re extremely proud as a team that we’ve managed to more than double the amount of charity profit so far this year, it’s amazing to see our charities benefit so much from the updated range and pricing model.” Ben Crook, Global Head of Operations & Procurement at Givergy.
