Michael Parker Benefit Auctions

Fees


From $10,000 to $10,000,000, MPBA can handle all your fundraising needs.  MPBA's fee structure is tailored to fit your event, your organization and your needs.  Upon contacting MPBA, we discuss your needs and schedule an initial consultation to learn more about your organization, your community and your Board.  MPBA works to identify your needs and crafts a fundraising solution that fits your community and your organization.  Once a contract is signed, MPBA works with you to plan an event that will not only be memorable, but will also be anticipated by your community each year. 


MPBA offers event services, consultation services and supplies.  Unlike commercial auctioneers, MPBA does not charge a commission on your sale proceeds, instead, we offer a fixed fee pricing method than can even be underwritten by a sponsor.  MPBA's fee is loosely based on the below fee schedule, but is tailored to your organization and your event. Finally, MPBA's fees are not due until after your event. 


Regardless of your needs, remember, MPBA can fashion a solution that fits your organization and your budget.  But, most importantly, remember . . .
