Thank you for your interest in holding an auction or a raffle to benefit the American Red Cross! An in-person auction – whether hosted or silent – can be an energizing addition to your next picnic, pep rally, holiday party or other event. Alternatively, you can also reach potential donors worldwide through an online auction hosted by eBay.
Please consult our guidelines below for instructions on holding online and in-person auctions.

The Red Cross is proud to work with eBay Giving Works, where you can buy and sell to support our cause.
Sellers can donate 10-100% of their listing's final sale price to the Red Cross by auctioning their items on eBay Giving Works.
Buyers can donate $1 (or more) whenever they make a purchase on eBay and pay using PayPal. Make the Red Cross your Favorite Nonprofit and you’ll see them every time you shop.
MissionFish is the organization that powers the eBay Giving Works program. MissionFish processes all donations that result from successful eBay Giving Works listings, as well as Donate Now and Give at Checkout donations. The organization collects eBay members' donations and makes sure that every donation intended for the American Red Cross is received, allowing us to focus on our mission.
