Why Wishlists Will Be Your New Best Friend!

If you are the type of organization that asks your constituents to  help out by donating items to be raffled or auctioned off, then we highly recommend you use wishlists to keep track of all your items.

{In an effort to keep our basic plan free, UltimateDonations.org sometimes uses affliate links to off you products that we think are top-notch from Amazon.com. The Ultimate Donations blog is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.}Wishlists- Your Silent Auction Savior

If your organization already uses Pinterest, you should consider using it to create a wish list comprised of everything that you would like to see donated or bought for your big fundraising event. Check out our Sample Pinterest Wishlist for a little bit of inspiration.

Another great option that we LOVE is the Amazon Wishlist. Click right from Amazon.com {Aff} to add things to your list, and supporters can buy and have items shipped directly to your organization. We love this format because it will take purchased items off the list, therefore reducing the likelihood of duplicate donations.

Quick Tip: Don’t forget that your wishlist should be diverse in both types of items as well as price. Adding smaller items that will later be combined into one larger prize is a great way to keep things affordable for your supporters. Don’t forget to add gift cards {Aff} to your wishlist too!
