Our 5th Annual Online Auction will be held November 1 – 10, 2021.
SOON YOU WILL BE ABLE TO VISIT OUR AUCTION PROMOTION PAGE for our press release, advertisements, slides, flyer etc.
Through the pandemic, our Granite State Ambassador certified volunteers spent their time watching videos, going on virtual tours, attending lectures and programs, and reading featured articles to learn about 500+ businesses and organizations throughout the state so they would be ready to get back out to the welcome centers. Currently we are at about half of our usual staffing levels and anxiously awaiting the day when we are at full strength again – and hoping our organization has the support to hang in until this is all over with. We know times are tough right now and we truly appreciate any donations to our fundraising auction.
Planning is now underway for our Fifth Annual Online Holiday Experience NH Auction, and we are asking for your participation. Your support is essential for us to continue to grow as the welcoming face of New Hampshire. Funds raised with the auction will go towards enhancing our GSA volunteers experience and knowledge, and will help support front-line customer service training programs throughout the state.
New Hampshire Granite State Ambassadors, Inc. (NHGSA) is a 501(c)3 NH nonprofit, which is proudly celebrating 25 amazing years of service to NH’s tourism industry. Our incredibly dedicated Granite State Ambassadors generally volunteer over 20,000 hours annually – hours spent warmly welcoming, and providing needed assistance and information to New Hampshire guests. The quality, long lasting impressions that our GSAs make on NH guests and residents is invaluable – at SO many levels, and their commitment and enthusiasm would be difficult to replace.
Here is how you can help…
Please donate an item to our Online Holiday Experience NH Auction. It can be an physical item, an “experience”, a gift certificate for goods or services – be creative – the possibilities are endless! This is a great opportunity to showcase your business or organization!
NHGSA will aggressively promote the Auction through press releases, online media, our website, our partners, cable access channels, and through emails. EVERY item donated will have a mention on our Facebook page, with a link to the donating business/organization. Through the online auction website, there will be a listing of your item, along with a photograph, donor information and link to your website.
The Auction will run online from November 1 – 10, 2021. Remember – your donation will not only benefit NHGSA, it is a marketing tool for your business or organization. Our GSAs, industry partners, and their family and friends are our top bidders – meaning this is “front-line, word-of-mouth marketing” for your business/organization! The auction is taking place just as the holiday shopping season is getting started. It is our hope that our publicity may prompt those bidders who did not win to seek out your items/services directly!
Please note: We will arrange for your item to be picked up by one of our volunteers if the item cannot be mailed. Items cannot be dropped off at our Mast Road address. This address is actually our finance officer’s office. We don’t have a physical office.
