Looking for inspiration or a new idea for your next fundraising event theme? It’s always a good idea to periodically freshen things up and Greater Giving is here to help.
Below you will find a bunch of themes submitted to us from non-profit organizations like yours from our last #OurAuctionTheme social media contest. Organizations from all over the country submitted their favorite themes from past events. We have collected them all to share with you and inspire you for your next event.
Also, we have provided a catalog of resources, infographs and articles from our resource library filled with tips and best practices.
We will update this page with more resources for you to utilize when you need inspiration for your next fundraising event. A big thanks goes out to all the organizations that participated!

Another Holiday Home Camp Gala is in the books. This year's South Beach Summer Soirée took it to a whole new level. Thank you to our loyal donors and supporters for recognizing the value that @holidayhomecamp brings to these deserving kids' lives. We didn't just set records this year, we blew them out of the water. Thanks @greatergiving for a great platform to run our fundraisers. –⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷: Ideal Impressions Photography #nonprofit #lakegenevawi #williamsbay #fundraiser #lakelife #hhcbenefit #dogood #kids #summervibes #summercamp #countdown #letsflamingle #partytime #southbeach #summertime #summersoiree #gala #benefit #partyforgood #eatdrinkdance #OurAuctionTheme
#@GreaterGiving #ourauctiontheme for 2017's Homeless2Hopeful Auction was Gatsby! Our staff & guests had a wonderful time dressing up in 1920's attire & raising money for our kids.
