Thank you for this very helpful article. I have been asked to create and run a silent auction for a very young charity that has never had an event like this and I have never done a silent auction before, so this will be my guideline!
Great question. Is it necessary to thank the people who had the winning bids and paid us for the items?
Thanks for your help! Thanks for your comment. Thank them, include information on your charity, and invite them to an upcoming non-ask event. I enjoyed reading your article!

I have been asked to run a silent auction at the school I work at. We are thinking of assembling themed gift baskets for the event.
Auction - Wikipedia
At the moment we are thinking of creating a hot cocoa lovers basket, Holiday candy basket, etc. I have never run anything like that before. I wonder how much a basket would normally be bought for items i a basket. I am having trouble figuring out how many baskets and donations we should try to get in order to meet our fundraising goals. Thank you for your help!
How many items you should have to reach your goals depends on the items you can source and your fundraising goal. Are you using sponsorships? If you have any other questions, feel free to e-mail me privately through our contact page and I would be happy to respond. Like a photo of someone, a handmade quilt, etc…Thanks!!
Love your site! Thanks for your question. I think it depends on the group that you will have in the room. Who are the people that will be there, what can they afford, and what items will they be most attracted to? I need to know what to include in the Thank you letter.
Do I put what the item is worth for tax purposes?
Do I include what is sold for? People these days are drowning in emails and requests for donations, so it can be hard to connect with them for an event like this. What are some suggestions for maximizing a positive response rate and filling a room? Great articles, We do a silent auction every year, last years event was about 75 baskets and raised almost dollars for about people.
I am wondering if you recommend using a txt bidding service. Wondering if it is worth the cost, I would think it would increase the bidding. So far, I have not participated in any silent auction events where text bidding has made a noticeable difference in the number or amount of bids.
4 Best Practices for Running a Nonprofit Silent Auction
Thanks for your question on receipts. Thanks for all the tips and info provided on this site. I have less than a month to go and I have to put together and manage a silence auction by myself. My question is how do I go about writing a silence auction letter? Thanks for your time and advice. Writing a silent auction letter need not be stressful — just explain the organization and why it is important, introduce your event and outline the silent auction, then ask for a donation of an item, service or gift card.

This was very helpful as I begin to decide if a silent auction is right for my group. Thanks for all of the tips! I have one question about gathering donations. Do the vendors get any kind of tax write off and if they do, do I need to provide a form or any information for them? Thanks you! Nicole, thanks for your question.
