COVID-19 has us all tossing our development plans out the window. How do we pivot our events and what are the key elements of a successful online auction? Join us as Freddie Silveria shares his experience on successful auctions AND how to meet your fundraising goals using virtual fundraising.


Freddie Silveria is a professional fundraising strategist and auctioneer. In five years, FSA Auctions has fundraised millions for 50+ events annually. Since COVID, FSA has pivoted quickly to virtual fundraising events that have been high quality productions and resulted in great successes for organization missions. FSA Auctions has fundraised over $500,000 with virtual fundraising events since COVID. FSA Auctions has met or increased prior years fundraising totals by as much as 135% and 200% increases! Clients include: Make-a-Wish Foundation, Salvation Army, CASA, Trinity Center and more.

Freddie cares deeply about facilitating an experience for supporters to make a difference for our organizations. He is 1 of 30 auctioneers in California to earn his Benefit Auctioneer Specialist designation and a graduate from the Worldwide College of Auctioneering and Saint Mary’s College of California.
