Online Charity Auction & Silent Auction Planning Resources

Charity auctions are a great way to raise money for your organization and community. At DoJiggy, we know that organizing a successful fundraising auction takes time and hard work. We have designed our charity auction software to make the most of both. Because we believe in the work you do, DoJiggy also provides auction coordinators with a complete set of free resources to help make your fundraising auction a success. All of these resources can be easily modified for your organization's needs. These resources, along with our charity auction software, are part of our commitment to help organizations both large and small run successful and profitable fundraising auctions year-round.

I'm a volunteer who has been helping coordinate a first time silent auction for a local charity. I have found your free information and tools invaluable. You will be my "go to" place for additional tools as we grow our little auction in the coming years. Lori F.
