"Don Martin has been an integral part of our fundraising events for the past 11 years. His energetic and humorous style really captivates and draws in our fundraising patrons. For our event committee, his insight into the way the evening should flow has helped to increase our overall event donations. We look forward to many more years of events with Don Martin."
“Get the most out of your auction and direct appeal with Don Martin. We gross over $400,000 and Don knocks it out of the park for us."
"Don has a lighthearted and fun personality that serves him well when he is working a crowd. But he also works hard to tie the auction to the mission of the event and the needs of the organization. Event attendees are swept along by his energy, but never forget the cause that they are supporting. With Don’s help, we raised more than $310,000 with our live and paddle auctions at our 2014 event."
"We depend on our annual fundraising gala for nearly 30% of our public support fundraising revenues. Our auctioneer keeps the night’s festivities fun and interactive, and at the same time they do an amazing job sharing the emotional impact of our clients’ stories, helping to touch heartstrings and get people bidding. Martin Auctioneering is definitely a big part of our fundraising success!”
"Don has provided us exceptional auctioneering services, as well as being a terrific entertainer, for over
24 years. Puttin’ on the Leash would not be the same without him!"
"Because of Don’s engaging personality, huge heart, and incredible talents as an emcee and auctioneer, our fundraiser has grown every single year. When Covid-19 struck, Don was the first person we called when it came to planning our first-ever virtual gala and largest fundraiser of the year. Don is a trusted and key partner to our organization – he embraced the challenge, supported our direction, and went above and beyond to share his expertise ahead of time while creatively thinking through ideas and solutions to ensure a successful event. On event night, the production company experienced some technical difficulties – an emcee’s worst nightmare! Don embraced it all like the true professional he is, kept our viewers engaged, and carried us through without missing a beat. We exceeded our fundraising goal by $50,000, and that is thanks to Don’s ability to make sincere connections with viewers and the way he genuinely communicates the importance of our mission while asking for support. He is one in a million and his skills truly shined. Forget that he was across the country…Don was absolutely “there” with us and all of our supporters when we needed him most."
