Auction Items

Our unique model is designed so you generate a meaningful donation no matter the winning bid. Thus, your invoice will be proportional to the size of the winning bid, which you report to us after the event.

At a minimum, you'll keep 80% of the winning bid for small-ticket items, like golf rounds, and 40% of the winning bid for big-ticket items, like vacations.

Let's look at some common examples of TravelPledge items you might sell at your auction:

Golf Foursome (Retail Value: $600)

Winning Bid: $500
You Keep: $400
(80% of winning bid)

Caribbean Cruise (Retail Value: $10,000)

Winning Bid: $8,000
You Keep: $3,200
(40% of winning bid)


You can reserve any experience in our inventory at no obligation. Pay only when an experience sells.

Keep Even More

Here are some ways to increase your net donation:

  1. Keep 100% of the winning bid in excess of the retail value.
  2. Keep 100% of the winning bid on any sponsored experience.
  3. Some experience providers donate more than the TravelPledge minimum requirements.

Find the Donation Calculator in your dashboard to see how much you will keep at each winning bid amount.

Raffle Items

Raffle items are available for a percentage of the retail value. Big-ticket items can be purchased for 50% of the retail value. Small-ticket items can be purchased for 15% of the retail value. You pay this amount in advance of the raffle.
