Silent Auction Fundraiser Leads to Bigger Profits

In spite of the name, a silent auction fundraiser is not really that silent. All of the items for bidding just happen to be showcased simultaneously. Each item on display carries a numbered scrap of paper where the starting price is quoted. Buyers make a note of their names, contact information and the final amount.  This type of auction is more convenient as you can take your decisions all at once instead of waiting for each item to be put up for display individually. A silent auction fundraiser usually takes place at churches, schools or similar large organizations. It is almost similar to a garage sale as patrons usually donate stuff they have no use for. A starting price is then put on these items before displaying them. Almost anything can be auctioned off. The main target, however, is to raise money and so everything must be well organized. Remember, appearance is important.
