NEW YORK, N.Y., May 31, 2011 — Autograph Store Charity Fundraising celebrated its fifth year of providing fundraising ideas to charities and non-profits worldwide with one of the most successful months in the organization’s history. After five years of supporting non-profits in all 50 states and around the world, charity fundraising director and co-founder Anthony Nurse has watched Autograph Store Charity Fundraising grow by leaps and bounds since 2006.
“It’s been an incredible evolution to watch, and this is just a great organization to be a part of,” Nurse said. “I can’t put into words how proud I am of where we are today and how far we’ve come. I knew we had a great concept from day one, but five years ago, I never would’ve thought we’d be raising millions of dollars for so many great causes. It’s been more rewarding than I ever could’ve imagined.”
Autograph Store Charity Fundraising’s evolution has been an impressive one. In just five short years, the organization has raised more than $5 million at charity auctions and fundraising events of all sizes. Whether providing no-risk auction items to small, local school fundraisers or large, international non-profits, Autograph Store Charity Fundraising has carved out a niche in the non-profit community unlike anyone else.
“The truth is, charities can get autographed memorabilia and once-in-a-lifetime experiences elsewhere, but what we offer is unique in a few important ways,” Nurse said. “First, when we tell our charity partners the program is a zero-risk all-reward opportunity, we mean it. We absorb all the risks and costs, and our charity partners absorb all the profits. The fundraising items we offer are unique to Autograph Store Charity Fundraising. No other provider offers such a wide array of unique memorabilia from the worlds of music, entertainment and sports, in addition to amazing experience and travel packages.”
It’s that unique combination of zero-risk items and rare fundraising ideas, with a careful eye toward authenticity and quality control, that’s allowed Autograph Store Charity Fundraising to expand as aggressively as it has. Beginning as just a small group of dedicated individuals working largely from their homes, today, the organization boasts a corporate office in Manhattan, a tremendous warehouse space in New Jersey and satellite offices on both coasts.
Of course, Autograph Store Charity Fundraising’s expansion won’t stop with its five-year anniversary. The group is projecting another year of remarkable growth by the end of 2011, and expects to break its own fundraising records for years to come. Autograph Store Charity Fundraising’s team has its sights squarely focused on finding new organizations to support and charity auctions to sponsor. For this fast-growing player in the non-profit community, year number five is only the beginning.
