In addition to raising money, the event must also deliver the following:

  • PURPOSE:  The charity must tell the story of who it serves, what problems that constituency faces, what the nonprofit is doing to solve those problems and how the members of the audience can help.
  • SPONSORS:  The event must honor the sponsors and other major supporters who give so generously to allow the organization to continue it’s great work.
  • FUNDRAISING:  The event must capitalize on the unique fundraising opportunity that exists when hundreds of people are gathered in a room to hear a nonprofit’s mission.
  • AUCTIONEER:  Bryce knows that the auctioneer’s task is to fulfill the FUNDRAISING plank of the event by raising as much money as possible, but it’s also the Auctioneer’s responsibility to enhance the ENJOYMENT the audience experiences,enhance the feeling of PURPOSE  and impact on the organization’s mission and show respect for the tremendous value that SPONSORS provide for the event.

Prior to Your Event…

Auction Fundraising Academy has a structured and highly organized approach to ensuring that both you and your auctioneer are prepared to maximize fundraising during your event.

One of our talented Auction Consultants will meet with you to conduct a Strategy Meeting to help you determine:

  • The types of items that will raise the most money
  • The ideal number of items for the size and resources of your audience
  • The best retail values of your live items based on your audience
  • Share our Instant Value Auction Items (IVAP) that we donate to our charity partners to help defray the event costs
  • Overview of our innovative Paddle Raiser strategy that engages the audience and turns your guests into a “Fundraising Team” committed to supporting your mission.

We will conduct a Final Details Call to:

  • Ensure that the live auction items are in the best fundraising order
  • Ensure that the fundraising elements are positioned in the most effective moments in the timeline
  • Ensure that the auctioneer has a clear understanding of unique details about live auction items, paddle raiser plants, matches, donors who should be recognized, etc.
  • Ensure that the Auctioneer has all of the live auction item sheets
  • Ensure that the Auctioneer has a completed Paddle Raiser sheet
  • Answer any final questions.

Bryce, Is the best auctioneer and goes out of his way to make your auction happen. He is a sincere and honest fellow and truly has his clients best interests at heart. I would recommend him for any auctioneering event…including weddings. Seriously Bryce keeps the auction moving and makes it fun, all at the same time. I think he took juggling for practice as an auctioneer. Bryce has helped me with a local networking group, exceed their expectations for fundraising auctions, over the past 3 years. Can’t say enough about him.

Bryce is energetic fireball of an auctioneer. Exactly what our Highlands Ranch Ducks Unlimited banquet needed to get people enthusiastic about bidding and spending money for the ducks. He did an outstanding job helping us raise money and because of the professional job he did we were able to raise more money than expected. He’s a professional in every sense, cares about his work and takes pride in doing a job well done. I can only hope he can help us next year with out annual banquet. Thank you Bryce!

Bryce was just what we needed for our schools auctions. He was prepared, energetic and knew just how to get the crowd going. Everyone is saying it was the highlight of the night. He meet with us ahead of time so he knew what our goals and objectives were. He gave insight on how to have things flow for the evening and brought with him two people to help. He arrived early and stayed late! I would highly recommend him and look forward to using him again for our next event. Thanks!!

Bryce did an AMAZING job with the Mile High Weimaraner Rescue’s annual Weim & Cheese event and helped us to have our BEST EVENT EVER as far as funds raised for our rescue.

I will ALWAYS use Bryce for any auction type events and would highly recommend him to anyone that I know!!! Thanks Bryce for your heart, passion and true professional skills in the auction scene.

Bryce Elemond was the perfect auctioneer for the Boulder County Republican Lincoln Dinner in August 2015. He also has a great enthusiastic, resonant voice. In advance of the auction, Bryce met with our committee personally, and was always available by phone or email to counsel us on winner auction items and bundling of items. At the event, he cruised the guests talking up the Live Auction, and even expanded one auction item that increased the bidding to $2000.00! I definitely recommend Bryce, and will engage him in a future Live Auction.
