Putting the Fun back into Fundraising. Fundraising today can be very challenging. There are many competing causes and ideas on how to raise funds, not to mention many organizations are facing donor fatigue. Public funds are becoming harder to come by each day and in spite of it’s great promise, online fundraising is not as easy as many expected. Conversely, live benefit events continue to be a major source of revenue for non-profits and charities the world over. Properly organized and executed events can generate media buzz, as well as reinvigorate existing donors and staff while bringing in new supporters. In spite of the potential gains, many organizations still do not hold live fundraising events because they believe they lack the resources.

Sonny Wong Founding Director. Board of Change

How We Can Help. Elias Arjan has generated over $12,000,000 as a fine art auctioneer. Prior to that he was a performing artist who traveled internationally. By unifying his experience as a performer and producer of large scale events with his knowledge of the high stakes world of the art business, Elias has designed a unique and effective program. This program is available to any charity, nonprofit or community organization and is not available for commercial purposes. Clients that have implemented this program have generated 30% 300% more revenue with Elias then with their previous auctioneers or fundraising consultants.

“Elias did so much more than perform on stage, he spent time with us preparing the items and presentation, and he trained our staff to maximize revenue. He revolutionized the way we think about and administer our auctions, and his work led to far more auction revenues than we have ever had in the past.� Alix Rosenthal. Esq. Board Chair. Black Rock Arts Foundation
