software is a web-based data system that allows nonprofit organizations to hold a professionally-run fundraising auction using volunteers. It is especially designed for church auctions, school auctions and other nonprofit auctions—any organization that sees holding an auction as a way to raise money for operating expenses or for a specific project.

EasyAuction™ was developed by Sara Mellen, author of SOLD: How to Run a Great Community Auction, and is the product of 11 years experience helping run auctions for a variety of churches, schools and other nonprofit organizations. She worked with several auction systems and found them inflexible and cumbersome. In addition, the cost of using these programs puts them out of reach for smaller organizations. EasyAuction™ is priced low enough that even the smallest auction can be run in professional manner.

Because the software is provided online, it can be accessed through any type of computer (PC or Mac) and using any browser. Data entry can be assigned to more than one individual, since the database is held on the Internet instead of individual computers. Our motto: Make more money and don't burn out your volunteers!

Among the benefits that EasyAuction™ can provide for your auction are:
  • Easy-to-use online data entry forms for bidders, donations, sales and payments.
  • Special organization logins for community members so that they can register for the event and donate items online from their own computer.
  • Customizable category lists, bid sheets, bidder cards, receipts and donor thank-you letters
  • Numerous reports, including but not limited to:
    • Lists of donors, bidders and items
    • Bid sheets
    • Bidder cards (3 different formats)
    • Attendance information
    • Oral auction paperwork including information cards for the auctioneer and runner sheets
    • Sales reports, both detail and summary
  • The ability to download information so that you can create your own custom forms (such as the catalog) and back up data locally.

Use of the software is donation-only. Contact us for more information or check out our demo.
