The ShareWay is the Better Way featuring Hannah Yang

Nonprofit development centers on connecting people to causes. Nonprofits have a range of options to achieve this, such as events, campaigns, direct mail appeals, social strategies, and board engagement. However, there is a secret sauce that many nonprofits are unaware of, and it’s free!

Auction fundraisers are another highly effective way to raise funds for your cause and connect supporters to your mission. Whether held as a stand-alone event, online, or as part of a signature gala, auctions can be a fun and engaging way to raise money. They offer donors the excitement of bidding while broadening your reach to a wider audience, especially when you have the right mix of items.

However, organizing an auction can be a lot of work. The most challenging part is often procuring the items. Your committee must compile a wish list, send solicitation letters, and make countless phone calls to secure donations. Tracking and following up with potential donors can also be daunting. Despite weeks of hard work, it’s not uncommon to end up with very few items for your auction.

Hannah Yang, CEO & Co-Founder of TheShareWay, revolutionized the item procurement process for nonprofits. In this episode, Hannah reveals an easier way to find companies willing to donate.
