Our story began in 2016 when Jeremy, our founder, attended a black tie charity ball in London. He was the successful bidder of a holiday used in the live auction, and felt rather happy to have supported the charity whilst having a lovely holiday to look forward to! A few weeks later however, he discovered that the charity only received 40% of his winning bid.
The holiday had been supplied by a private auction company – and once they had paid the supplier back and taken their commission the charity only skimmed what was left.
From that day forward he vowed to find a way to make it easier for charities to source (and businesses to donate) the prizes they so badly need for their fundraising events. Charity Escapes came to life that evening on a napkin, and the rest as they say, is history!
Businesses can make their charitable giving more effective whilst enjoying additional sales & marketing benefits
Charities can use prizes at their event that truly benefit them & raise much needed funds
It’s a win-win for both and there is always a happy winning bidder!
