Removing the barriers
for non-profits


In 2007, Tom Kelly was trying to set up an auction for his mother to raise funds for a cause near and dear to her heart. What he encountered were steep commission fees and a lack of user control. Tom recognized that this represented a real barrier to nonprofits and everyday heroes like his mom, who wanted to make a real difference in their communities but often lacked the resources, expertise and time to take their fundraising efforts to the next level.

So Tom founded Charity Auctions Today, a DIY online auction platform that lets anyone set up a professional-quality auction and mobile bidding events '“ in minutes. With customizable templates, multiple mobile bidding options, personalized support from human account managers, and many more user-friendly features, Charity Auctions Today is the '˜click-and-easy' way to grow your bidding pool, increase your fundraising profits and reduce expenses '“ so more of what you raise goes directly to your cause.
