Business Luminaries Give Back Through Fourth Annual Charitybuzz Entrepreneur Auction
Leading auction site for cause, Charitybuzz, launched its fourth annual Entrepreneur Auction, featuring exclusive access and experiences across industries, from tech to food to real estate and everything in between: Charitybuzz.com/Entrepreneur.
Charitybuzz brings its online community of bidders exclusive opportunities to live their dreams and make a difference. Each auction item benefits a non-profit organization working to make a positive impact - from arts programming to cancer research. By auctioning business experiences, Charitybuzz is able to help its non-profit partners take advantage of existing supporters, including Board members, to unlock new revenue.
Hundreds of interesting experiences are currently live for auction at Charitybuzz.com/Entrepreneur, including:
Items and experiences will be added throughout the Entrepreneur Auction, which closes Dec. 6, 2018.
"The Entrepreneur Auction is a unique moment for Charitybuzz and our non-profit partners, where we are able to engage entrepreneurs from two angles: as the donors, high-profile leaders are contributing their time, and as customers, savvy professionals are bidding on these exclusive experiences that can propel their careers forward," said Charitybuzz President Ben Erwin. "It's a win-win for our charity partners. Even beyond the immediate benefit of unrestricted funds from the Entrepreneur Auction, nonprofits are getting the advantage of connecting with new donors who bring potential long-term value."
A new report shows that entrepreneurs give 50% more annually to charity (compared to non-entrepreneurs), and are far more likely to volunteer. Seventy percent of entrepreneurs who plan to sell or shift ownership of their companies are interested in building charitable giving into the exit, making the non-profit relationships of today potentially significantly more valuable in the long run.
Aspiring entrepreneurs and business "fans" have the chance to bid on once-in-a-lifetime experiences, while donating to cause, now through Dec. 6, at Charitybuzz.com/Entrepreneur.
