ALABASTER, Ala., April 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Pearce & Associates has launched Bid4aCause.com, a revolutionary method for non-profits to raise needed funds other than by cash donations. Bid4aCause.com provides a solution for donors to sell personal assets for cash to donate to their charity of choice.
Churches, schools and other non-profit organizations largely operate on cash donations from a small percentage of supporters. Bid4aCause.com allows other supporters to donate to the charity by selling items they already own, such as RVs, boats, cars, firearms, jewelry, golf carts, farm and construction equipment, business assets and real estate. Proceeds from these assets can then be donated to the non-profit.
Chip Pearce, president of Pearce & Associates, created Bid4aCause.com because he saw an urgent need for an alternative to raise funds. "Our concept is simple," said Pearce. "Most churches, schools and non-profits operate on the 80/20 rule — 20 percent of supporters give 80 percent of their operating budget. I believe the other 80 percent would also like to contribute but don't have the money after paying monthly bills. What most do have, however, is stuff," Pearce adds.
His goal is to change the way these organizations and their followers think about giving. A church member may not have the cash to contribute to this week's offerings. A college graduate may want to give to their school or university, but simply can't afford it. A supporter of the local humane society, children's hospital or food bank may want to help but doesn't have the extra funds. But they may have assets that can be sold to generate cash to donate.
That's where Pearce & Associates comes in. They plan to use their experience, knowledge, staff, network and ability to store, market and sell these donated items within a short window of time. For 39 years, Pearce & Associates has helped seniors downsize and estate executors, farmers and thousands of small business owners liquidate their assets. They work with some of the nation's largest corporations including AT&T, SPIRE, Alabama Power, KBR International and the U.S. Bankruptcy Courts selling shopping centers, land, homes, fleet vehicles, collector cars, firearms, private collections, military surplus, yachts and manufacturing facilities.
"Even if the individual doesn't want to use our firm to market and sell the assets, we want people to change their mindset about charitable giving," said Pearce. "If you don't have cash to give, think about an item donation or sell something and then send the cash to the charity."
