The Nonprofit Center of the Berkshires will hold an online auction especially for nonprofits from March 16-31, 2020 to raise money for its educational programs and services for nonprofits.
The “Nonprofit Necessities” online auction will feature dozens of items needed by nonprofits — things like office supplies, wine for events, Facebook tutoring, strategic planning consulting, subscriptions, books, webinars, help with budgeting, county wide flyer distribution and more. Nonprofits (and their board members and supporters) are encouraged to bid to win something they really need and might not otherwise be able to afford.
Additionally, there will be items that appeal to a general audience so that any community member can bid (not just nonprofits). These items could include gift certificates to local restaurants, tickets to events, local services and products, etc.
Local businesses and consultants who donate will be supporting both the NPC and the nonprofit that wins the bid. Consider it an opportunity to get in front of a very targeted audience and do good at the same time!

“WAM Theatre used the billboard to promote its acclaimed fall production of Pipeline by Dominique Morisseau, which was a huge success. Billboards are an expensive marketing item we don’t always have in our budget so this was a huge help courtesy of a special board member. We’re looking forward to the next auction, it’s a great way to build and nurture our local philanthropic supply chain.”
Wendy Healey, Board Member/WAM Theatre
