Transition Squad Fundraising Programs

Online Fundraising Auction Platform

"All in all, the process was seamless and we raised more funds than expected. In addition, several donors have advised that they will keep us in mind for future auctions, so we are now planning on holding two auctions per year – once in the spring and again in the fall to coincide with the changing seasons and spring and fall de-cluttering!"
...Karen Ormerod, Executive Director, Humane Society of Durham Region

In addition to downsizing estate auctions, Transition Squad's online auction platform can also be used as a modern fundraising tool by schools, charities, sports teams, churches and other not-for-profits. It is a green initiative which fosters recycling and repurposing with no door-to-door selling. For many organizations, Transition Squad Online Fundraising Auctions expose kids to a real-life, online business experience with opportunities to bond with parents while determining what to donate, researching the market and watching the auction results, as well as photo club participation. Business donations of products and services, as well as personal effects are eligible.
