How much will an investment in my event's largest profit center cost?

Great Question! We will discuss together the best option for your charity and your event's success!

Option 1: The No Cost Option!

Nationwide, many non-profit organizations and foundations prefer to use the standard Buyer's Premium at auction. This is a contribution made by the highest winning bidders that serves to underwrite our professional auction services. Your organization pays nothing, and you keep 100% of the total dollars bid. That is a true Benefit! Let us talk to you about how this works.

Option 2: Flat Fee with Bonus Incentives

Occasionally, some large organizations and established event managers have a budget pre-determined for their auction services. The flat rate with a graduated bonus incentive is designed for those clients who budget annually for auction services and choose to absorb the costs internally or secure external, donated underwriting. The bonus incentives encourage the auctioneer and team to push to the next level in reaching previously unattainable goals.

Option 3: Percentage of the Proceeds

Other organizations choose to take a portion of their profit to compensate for auction services. For these organizations, Granger Thagard Auctions can arrange for a percentage of the auction proceeds to cover our services.
