Back when it first became clear that in-person nonprofit events wouldn’t be possible during the COVID-19 pandemic, I recorded a coaching call I had with two nonprofit leaders (Emily and Sydni) to advise them on how to plan their very first virtual fundraising event. They gave me permission to release the recording on my podcast, so I published the call on May 1 in an episode called “Advice for Your First Virtual Fundraising Event”. After the call, Sydni downloaded my Silent and Online Auction Guide (available at to decide whether they could pull off an online auction at the event.

This week, Sydni is back on the podcast to share her tips for YOUR next charitable online auction! She gives some advice that comes straight from my Silent and Online Auction Guide, plus she shares the behind-the-scenes story of how her nonprofit planned a successful auction that ended up bringing in an additional $8,700 of event revenue.
