FUNDRAISING IS AT THE HEART OF THE

Comox Bay Marina Depot STORY

The concept for Comox Bay Marina Depot was created by Elise Wetzel as she was helping to fundraise for a new playground at her children's school. Elise recognized that eBay auctions and Craigslist ads of donated items could be a powerful fundraising tool especially if there were a service that helped make it easy. From this small idea for a school benefit came the foundation for Comox Bay Marina Depot - providing an easy way for any person, business or organization to sell things on eBay, Craigslist and Kijiji.

FUNDRAISING WITH Comox Bay Marina Depot COMES WITH SOME IMPORTANT BENEFITS!

  • Less hassle. No need for your supporters (and their friends and family) to buy anything. No money to handle, no orders to take, no products to deliver.
  • Higher sales. Because over 34 million people shop on eBay and Craigslist, items auctioned through Comox Bay Marina Depot typically sell for MUCH more than they would at a community rummage sale or benefit auction.
  • More profits. Comox Bay Marina Depot is dedicated to helping not-for-profits raise funds more efficiently. With Comox Bay Marina Depot competitive commission structure, 70-80% of all proceeds raised go directly to your organization (vs. 20-50% of most fundraiser programs).
  • Donor friendly. Gives your supporters a chance to clean out their closets for a good cause. Plus, each donor receives a link to their auction, so they can track their item's final sale value for their records.
