Kompolt supports its customers by creating and managing high profile, high value charity campaigns online. These campaigns have raised over $21 million to date for U.S. and international non-profit entities, and have in turn driven brand value for Kompolt’s base of clients.

High Value, High Profile Event Management: From Lunch with Warren Buffet to Jay Leno’s Harley, Kompolt is the choice for running and managing high profile, high value auctions and other charity fundraising events. Because of our experience at marketing, running, and screening buyers for some of the top fundraising auctions over the last five years, Kompolt consistently outperforms other companies that provide event management services. The bottom line: with Kompolt, your charity will make more money and your sponsors will have a bigger PR splash. A sampling of services Kompolt offers with the high profile promotional auction in mind:
Customer Service Center – High profile auctions generate a lot of interest and a LOT of questions. Kompolt’s staff is adept and experienced in handling all the questions prospective buyers may have.
Bidder Pre-Qualification (BPQ) – Is that winning bid a valid bid? High profile auctions are susceptible to bidder fraud. Kompolt screens bidders with our BPQ process to ensure that the winning bidder has funds available to make purchases. We have verified over $75 million for bidders around the world.
Background checks – Beyond having the funds, sponsors and charities want the winning bidder to be someone supportive of their cause. Kompolt will run a background check on winning bidders to make sure that your good PR won’t go wrong at the event.
Fulfillment – A six-foot mirror signed backstage at the Emmy’s? A custom made COACH Vespa? Unique items get the most attention for your sponsor, but getting them safely to the winning bidder can be a hassle. Kompolt can provide verification of authenticity, and get the item delivered safely to the winning bidder.
Reporting – Who won the auction? How many people bid on my items? How much exposure did the auction get – on eBay, in page views, on related sites? Once the auction is over, sponsors and non-profits need to know that their goals were met, and how they might do even better next time. Kompolt’s reporting package gives our clients the information they need.
