Who We Are and Our Philosophy
Founded in Minneapolis, MN in 2009, WinningCause.org is a socially responsible company whose business plan is founded on helping nonprofit organizations meet their fundraising goals, ultimately giving back to communities across the US. Our mission is to provide your nonprofit organization with numerous helpful, free, online tools that help you to raise funds through online auctions at no cost while easily managing donors and donations. We help your nonprofit maximize fundraising while minimizing the workload typically associated with traditional pen and paper silent auctions. Your bidders can use our free mobile application to bid and pay from their smart phones, seamlessly integrating online bidding with mobile bidding at your event, effectively making the pen and paper silent auction a thing of the past. We are revolutionizing the fundraising industry by providing free online silent auctions to nonprofit organizations. Click here to see how WinningCause allows your nonprofit to keep up to 100% of the auction proceeds.
How We Can Help
By integrating social media and by tapping into our pool of philanthropic, serial bidders, our online auctions have raised as much as 27% more when compared to silent auctions held the previous year. Our customer service is second to none. An online auction consultant is assigned to each online auction to not only help in the planning process, but to be available throughout the course of your auction, should you have any questions or concerns. Through some exclusive partnerships we developed over time, we can help you to start building your auction with highly desirable inventory the day you register. In fact, organizations can get more than enough inventory directly from our partners so they don’t even need to do any item procurement of their own! We are a one stop fundraising and donor management center for your nonprofit, maximizing all of your fundraising efforts and charging you as little as NOTHING for our service.
