About Champion Fundraiser
Champion Fundraiser specializes in working with non-profit organizations to help them raise more money with our proven strategies and premier consulting plans so they can continue to save and impact more lives.
Non-profit organizations are always competing for funding. That means we need to work with you to keep your donors focused on your organization.
Auction attendees are also getting younger. With social media and busy lifestyles, they have shorter attention spans and are looking to be entertained. Gone are the days an auctioneer can just get up and sell items to the highest bidder. This new generation of donors is looking for more. They want to be part of a giving experience that all of their friends will be talking about and that they can post on social media.
Champion Fundraiser not only understands this need, but also creates our events to cater to it. We pride ourselves on entertaining your audience, helping you raise the most possible money, and retaining and engaging new donors. We make sure the whole audience is included in the fun!
