Silent auctions are quite popular among nonprofits, and for good reason. They’re a fun and engaging way for people to support your organization. More importantly, they tend to generate a lot of revenue


If you’ve decided to organize a silent auction at your next event, you’ll need to think about how you want people to bid on the items they’re interested in. You can invest in a mobile bidding platform, which many guests find convenient because they don’t have to leave their seats or line up to place a bid. 


That being said, if your guests aren’t very tech savvy, or you’re simply looking for a more traditional (and more affordable) bidding system, then bid sheets are probably your best option. 

In this article, we’ll go over everything you need to know about silent auction bid sheets including:

  • What is a Silent Auction Bid Sheet
  • What to Include on a Silent Auction Bid Sheet
  • How to Use a Silent Auction Bid Sheet
  • How to Organize a Silent Auction
  • PLUS, download your own FREE copy of our Silent Auction Bid Sheet Template below.


By the end, you’ll be well-equipped to create your own bid sheets and ensure that your silent auction is a success.
