It goes without saying that the most appropriate items for your online fundraising auction are books. The main advantage of books is that they have an unlimited and continuously growing market. They are also easy to pack, store, and ship.
To maximize the efforts that go into literacy-oriented online fundraising for nonprofits, nonprofit leaders like you must carefully choose the type of books to include in the online auction. The typical bestsellers in online sales are non-fiction books on subjects like art & photography, history, how-tos, cooking, and medical and legal issues. Rare books also sell well, like first edition spy novels.
