Charity Auctions

No matter the size of your event, Charity Benefits Unlimited® will work with you to exceed your fundraising goals! We will provide items of your choice to your organization on a consignment basis, with no financial obligation or risk on your part. Items that do not sell at your event will be returned to us at no additional cost to you.

Charity Benefits Unlimited® makes organizing and managing a fundraising event fun, easy and stress-free. Our services can help you take your fundraising event to the next level and are available at no cost to you. As you plan your event, Charity Benefits Unlimited® offers you complete access to our extensive product collection at true wholesale pricing.

With their experience of working over 150 fundraising events yearly, our fundraising specialists are able to help you strategically choose the best items for your event’s demographic, and can even be present at your event to set up and answer any questions. Professionally designed bid sheets are also offered for all of your auction items, including your organization’s own donated items. After the conclusion of the event, if some bidders choose not to take their winnings with them, items may be picked up from our Scottsdale showroom or can be shipped to the winning bidders for a nominal fee.

Throughout the process of planning and executing your event, there is no cost or risk to you!

Our friendly and knowledgeable fundraising specialists will work with you to determine the auction items best suited for your event, either through our website or in person in our Scottsdale showroom.

From exclusive sports, celebrity, music and entertainment memorabilia, to exotic vacation packages and more, we will provide you with the perfect items for your auction.

Since CBU donates 25% of each opening bid back to your organization, you are guaranteed to raise funds with even one bid. For every dollar bid thereafter, 100% of the funds will go right back to you. Plus, since all items are on consignment, any items that do not sell in your auction are simply returned back to us at no charge!

example
  1. The opening bid for a particular item is set at $100.
  2. 25% of this opening bid is automatically donated back to you ($25).
  3. The item sells for $500.
  4. You will receive $425 for that item and CBU will receive $75 (75% of the starting bid).

AHS_LOGO_TM_-_STACKEDThrough the years, Charity Benefits Unlimited has raised over 3 million dollars for thousands of organizations, locally and nationally.

As AHS evolves, it is focused on inspiring compassion in others through its appreciation of humanity and its reflection in animals… AHS makes every effort to model its own behavior on the accepting, gentle spirit of animals with the hope of compelling the community to act on their behalf”.

We couldn’t be any more thrilled to raise money for this extraordinary foundation!
