Taking Bids Fundraising

Taking Bids Fundraising takes a vested interest in your organization’s goals and mission so that we can help raise awareness and funds for you.

We are much more than auctioneers. We are ACTIONeers and do more than show up and talk fast.  We are your development officer before and during the event.

By offering a variety of proven fundraising strategies, Taking Bids not only maximizes your fundraising efforts, but also helps grow future success. Our hands-on approach and experience in business, entertainment, training and education has shaped the way we partner with our clients, inspires audiences, and achieve record-breaking results.

Trisha was an excellent auctioneer and understood not only our fiscal goal but understood the organization and the crowd we would be catering to. I appreciated all Trisha's expertise and assistance to make our benefit the most profitable ever. I would highly recommend Trisha and her Taking Bids team for all your benefit auctioneering needs.
