Service Auction Fundraiser

For the past several years, QC 4-H Community Club has been having a service auction as a successful fundraiser.

Here’s how it works?

Individual members, or groups of members, come up with a service they are willing to perform.  At the February 6th community club meeting, family and friends bid on these services in a life auction format.  The highest bidder pays for the auction service that evening and leaves with contact information to redeem their

purchased service


What will the raised money be used for?

Traditionally a portion is used for our year end celebration and pin awards.   The membership votes on use of fundraised money.  In the past, some uses have been leader trainings/certifications, donations for service projects and summer camp scholarships members can apply for.

How does a member  sign up to offer a service?Members may offer a service as an individual or as a group.  If you find a group to work with, there needs to be one person willing to serve as the main contact/coordinator.

We usually have a variety of services depending on the ideas and talents of our members.   These tend to be popular service ideas:  horse trailer washing, stall clean up, saddle cleaning, baked items (either brought that night, or by order for future…be specific on which it is), yard work, prepared dinners (for future), etc.  Be specific in your auction description (for example, say how many hours of babysitting or specify how many members will provide a certain number hours of yardwork.
