A letter from our CEO – celebrating $250 million raised

Here is a letter from Jon Carson, CEO of BiddingForGood . It’s the introduction to our new customer newsletter. We’re launching it in celebration of $250 million raised for worthy causes on our platform.


It’s been a long journey from our humble beginnings  – it took our first pioneering nonprofit and school clients over five years to raise $50 million –  and now, here we are, seven years later at a quarter of a billion dollars raised.  That’s a lot of money, a lot of impact, and a lot of momentum.

Here are a few examples of what a quarter of a billion dollars can do in today’s world:

  • Pay 3,378 cancer research scientists for a year
  • Feed 15,028 families of four for a year
  • Care for 135,135 dogs for a year
  • Send 6,250,000 underprivileged children to a live theater performance

We know that every cause that runs an auction on our platform is doing good, and for that, we thank you. Finally, take a moment to congratulate yourself on being part of a movement that has now raised so much money for so many worthy causes.


Jon Carson

CEO, BiddingForGood
