MaxSold offers commission-free online auctions to help

TORONTO, Jan. 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — In response to the enormous challenges facing the charitable sector, MaxSold does not offernotprcomputer organizations and charities zero commission, contactless online auctions to replace the silent auctions they would otherwise have held at galas or in-person fundraising events. MaxSold has already raised over $150,000 for the charitable sector since the start of the pandemic.

“Under normal circumstances, the work done by charities and nonprofits is invaluable to society,” says Emma Lo, Director of Customer Success, MaxSold. “In times of crisis, this work must find a way to continue in order to support local communities.”

By hosting an online auction, charities create a way for their donors and followers to support them even during lockdowns and social distancing measures, and they benefit from increased reach as the auction is in line.

“I think most organizations today struggle with budgets and how to continue to be achievable,” says Alicia Gordon, director of the Rotary Club of Kingston and partner at Gordon’s Downsizing and Estate Sales Ltd. auction, how the money is handled, the support you get for posting items online, and ultimately the immediate digital reach.

During the pandemic, MaxSold has seen the number of online charity auctions and fundraisers double year over year. Organizations that have used MaxSold include Rotary clubs, church groups, food projects, women’s shelters, education, and animal groups. The variety of items in these auctions reflects the creativity of organizations during COVID-19. The auctions included antiques and collectibles, artwork, sports equipment, gift certificates, online courses and experiences that would further support businesses in the local community.

“In the start-up community, we think of partnerships between businesses and other sectors as a way to add social value to the local community,” says Sushee Perumal, CEO of MaxSold. “We have developed a simple online system for hosting online auctions and are delighted that our platform can be used to advance the mandates of charities.”
