Trusted Partners

Our strength comes from a solid network.

Winspire partners with highly respected event planning and fundraising industry experts. This enables us to recommend a wide range of valuable resources, including Auctioneers, Event Support & Production, Cashiering, Memorabilia and Online Auctions.

We also work with the best travel partners in the industry and negotiate discounted rates. Since they know our job is to help Nonprofits raise money, we receive preferred pricing and exclusive experiences, generating higher net profits for you.

Giving Back

Winspire walks the walk.

Our company as a whole operates with a deep appreciation for the importance of giving back to the Nonprofit community. Giving back is an integral part of the Winspire company culture.

In 2013, our Winspire team of 25 individuals volunteered more than 700 hours and raised over $100,000 for the Nonprofit community.

Full Disclosure

What you see is what you get.

In order to allow Nonprofits and bidders the opportunity to make fully informed decisions, we provide all the details of each Experience we offer, listing any blackout dates or restrictions up front. If we know about it, you will know about it.

As a matter of company policy, our package prices are always available to the public.

Last Minute Procurement

It is never too late to add items to your event.

When procurement for your event doesn’t go as planned, our No Risk Experiences can be used as a backup. Even on the day of the event, you can easily reserve one or more of our packages online and even add to those you’ve already reserved.

Reputation

Our business is built on referrals.

Winspire’s success relies on our ability to help Nonprofit organizations develop fundraising strategies to raise more money and turn Winning Bidders into repeat donors. We survey every one of our Nonprofit customers and Winning Bidders for feedback that we use to continuously improve our products and services.

We are happy to provide references from other Nonprofits in your area. Winspire is registered as a commercial fundraiser with the Attorney General and as a seller of travel.

5 Tips for More Effective Procurement Efforts

By Kevin Spykerman | Winspire Senior Event Consultant

A benefit auction is one of the most valuable fundraising tools available, not just because it provides a way to raise a lot of money in a short period of time, but also because it is the ideal vehicle for making personal and lasting connections with your supporters.

All too often, however, the auction committee views procurement for the auction as a daunting task, which makes them wonder if it is worth the time and energy. The short answer is, ‘yes.’ Here are a few tips for making auction procurement more efficient, more effective, and easier... Read more

How we’ve helped: Walking for Brooke

The CHOC Walk in the Park is an annual fundraiser presented by Disneyland® in which tens of thousands of walkers join together to help raise money for Children’s Hospital of Orange County.

Winspire has walked in this event for the past five years to show support for Brooke Dilliplaine, a beautiful 11 year old girl who suffers from a rare form of Epilepsy. Having endured over 3,500 seizures and more than 50 hospitalizations at CHOC beginning 5 weeks after her birth, Brooke helps us understand just how important our assistance is.

Last year was a tremendous success with more than 16,000 walkers raising over $1.7 million for Children’s Hospital of Orange County. Winspire was thrilled to contribute over $6,000 and recruit a team of almost 50 people to walk alongside Brooke. For more information on how you can help us support Brooke, join our mailing list.

Working for you: Accommodating your Winning Bidders

“I have nothing but praise for Winspire and the entire experience with booking the trip! The original package included flights on American and they don't offer a direct flight to San Diego from here. So Veronica, our booking agent, located a non-stop flight on jetBlue for a $50 surcharge. Everything was flawless, the hotel was gorgeous and we enjoyed five days of cloudless, 75 degree weather! Made returning last night a sad, sad experience!”

Here for you: Only a click away

“Having two major galas a year, it’s comforting to know that Winspire is only a click away. They offer so many unique and diverse experiences, we never have to worry about auctioning off the same type of package year after year. In fact, Winspire packages have become our "drawing card" for our guests. It is so easy to match their packages with our guests and their offerings do very well in raising money. It is the easiest part of running a major gala.”
