When wanting to build your organization's auction item inventory, your auction project type has the access to 100's of businesses; and organizations' Donation Request pages on their websites looking to contribute items for your auction event!
Under Items > Request Item Donations, is where you will be able to access this feature in the auction manager.
To get started, find an organization and click on the Request Donation link. This will take you to a form on their website to make your donation request.
If an organization/company chooses to donate an item to your organization's event the in-kind donation will appear under the item tab>donated items
Your organization will receive an email notification regarding the donated item if it has not been approved or rejected after 24 hours.
Approving the donated item will directly associate the donor to the item and create a donor/sponsor profile and will then continue the process of creating the item and publishing.
Please note: By completing the forms, it does not guarantee that these organizations and companies will approve your donation request.
