What to Do

In today’s world one thing is certain; there is no shortage of worthwhile causes to support. There are children who need medicine and housing, diseases that need attention and research, and schools that need funding and support. Despite the plethora of worthwhile causes, fundraising continues to be a struggle. This never-ending battle to raise funds can inspire some organizations to host galas, walk-a-thons, pledge drives, and a wide variety of other options. We believe that auctions provide an excellent opportunity to tap into community support and raise the necessary funds for your organization.

At Innovative Event Solutions, we believe that every organization has unique individual needs. That’s why we’ve got an event solution for everyone. Big budget, small budget. Live auction, online auction. You name it, we can do it. If you’ve got a gala coming up, a silent or live auction may be just the thing to help provide that next level of fundraising support, and get your supporters excited with great values. If you don’t have the ability to host a full-size gala, maybe an online auction is more up your alley? In either case, we at IES have what you need to help raise money and we’ll work with you to make sure it happens.

Between the two of us, we’ve spent nearly a decade in fundraising, and have an excellent understanding of the ins and outs of auction and event management. In conjunction with your organization, we believe we can provide the necessary support to not only throw a successful event, but also free up your staff to do what they do best, help people. From the moment you sign with us, you can feel a weight off your shoulders. Candace Clark, Director of Special Events for the Alzheimer’s Association of Orange County notes, “Having Innovative Event Solutions as our auction partners made the process amazingly successful and worry free. From start to finish, IES was professional, patient, and extremely detailed in making sure our auction was a huge success… I will never have another auction without IES.”

We’ll help bring in attractive donations, like airline tickets, hotel stays, tickets to theme parks and theaters, and gift certificates to restaurants. In addition to a proven successful database of donors, we also have contacts with major companies so that we can put together a dream package to target your specific guests. Want a European getaway? Wecan get it. Want a seven-night Hawaii stay at the Ritz-Carlton? No problem. If you can think it up, we can find a way to get it in your auction.

No matter what size your organization is, we are confident that we can find an event solution for you. We believe in working with you to create a solution that has everything you need, and nothing you don’t. It’s your event, our job is to make it the best we can make it. We’ve worked with a wide variety of organizations of all sizes, including Alzheimer’s Association of Orange County, St. Mel Parish Schools, Corazon De Vida, Friends of El Faro, Cypress College and more! Our level of expertise allows us to be an effective one-stop fundraising solution service.
