Is Travel Really the Solution?

We hope our post finds you, your team and loved ones all well. We’ve been asked the following question by our clients and partners a lot lately:

“Is Travel working in the time of Covid19 to help raise more mission dollars?”  YES, YES, YES would be the answer!

Don't take it from us.

Take it from our clients that have had recent successes including Auction Packages travel experiences in the time of Covid19. Below is our client's feedback and the experiences that helped raise more in 2020!

“Working with Auction Packages was an events manager’s dream. The flexibility we had putting packages together, the variety of packages offered, and the outstanding customer service were all absolutely crucial when we had to quickly pivot our annual in-person gala to a virtual one. I felt the Auction Packages team would provide a stellar experience to our gala donors. No matter the size or budget of the event, Auction Packages is a great option for any fundraiser.”

Megan Callery, Development Officer, Events & Corporate Partnerships

Father Joe’s Village, San Diego – May 2020.

They sold trips to both Napa and Tuscany!!

"Michele at Auction Packages was amazing to work with on our charity auction. She helped me many times to determine the best options for our audience and even tweaked given the pandemic and current trends to help us raise the most money possible."
Deb Blaylock,Director of Development

Camp Quality USA, (2020).

They had success auctioning the following trip 3X!

"Auction Packages really became an asset to our auction.  We were trying to bring people's support from outside our area.  Auction Packages brought a WOW factor which we didn't have previously.  22% of registered bidders were from out of state and I know the big-ticket packages -our trips to the Bahamas & Napa - definitely was a factor that drew a wider audience"
Virginia Beach SPCA / June 2020 Online Benefit.  

Kate Baldwin, Chief Communications &
Relations Officer

They sold three trips to Napa, Charleston and Washington DC!
