Announcing eG Shopping Block Auctions!

The eGullet Society is pleased to announce an exciting new initiative: eG Shopping Block Auctions! Now, both your buying and selling on eBay can raise funds for the Society, and you can make a profit for yourself at the same time.

The new eG Shopping Block auctions work the same as eBay auctions, except the seller designates a portion of the proceeds from the sale as a tax-deductible donation to the eGullet Society. If you're already familiar with eBay, this will be a cinch for you. If you're new to eBay, we'll help you through the process!

As an eBay buyer, you can choose to bid on items that are listed by eGullet Society member sellers. As an eBay seller, you can donate a percentage of your eBay sale to the eGullet Society. It’s easy, it’s fun, and it’s a convenient way for you to make a financial contribution toward the worthy causes of the eGullet Society. You control how much to give -- as little as 10% or as much as 100% from anything you sell.

eG Shopping Block auctions rely on the eBay MissionFish* program. The eGullet Society is registered as one of the 501c3 tax-exempt nonprofit public charities that can participate in this program. This means that effective immediately, you can buy and/or sell eBay items in order to help raise funds for the Society.

This link will transport you to the eGullet Society’s homepage in eBay MissionFish.

Those of you who are already familiar with eBay from either bidding or selling will find it much the same as what you are already used to. Even if you've never used eBay before, it's easy! Just go to the eGullet Society page and eBay will walk you through the process with its simple five-step "Quick Start" process.

Click here if you are interested in a general overview of how it works for nonprofit organizations like ours, and click here to find out how to get started.

For those new to eBay, here are helpful links for eBay Basics and eBay Selling Tips. If you still find it a little difficult to get going, we are here to help. Send an email to AuctionHelp@eGullet.org and one of our eGullet Society volunteers will be happy to assist.

Whether you're an eBay veteran or newbie, we are sure you will enjoy this opportunity to support the eGullet Society. Be one of the first to buy or sell for the eGullet Society cause; get started now by clicking on the appropriate link in this page! We appreciate your participation and thank you for the support.

*MissionFish is a fundraising mechanism operated through eBay Giving Works. This eBay program is also a service of the Points of Light Foundation. You can click here to read more about MissionFish.
