“Truly a Class Act! I highly recommend Rick and his team for anyone looking to take their event to another level. I have used Rick Miller and his auctioneer business “Fund Your Org” for over 6 years now, and I am always impressed on the success he helps my non-profit organization achieve at our events.  I highly recommend.”

“We’ve been working with Rick and the Fund Your Org team for several years and they have helped to maximize the fundraising success of the Red Ribbon Gala. We particularly appreciate the personal approach and extra effort Rick takes with our event to learn our mission and donors. We highly recommend their services!”

“Fund Your Org was recommended to us by another person who had worked with them in a different city. We were very skeptical after having little success with another consulting group. After meeting with Rick we knew we really needed his expertise during our live auction. We received so much more than a great auctioneer. We are definitely continuing our relationship with Fund Your Org and expect our next event will be even better!

Review written on the behalf of YWCA OKC – 2018 Purple Sash Gala

“WOW! This is an excellent company with years of experience. From the first day we started working with them, they devoted their time and expertise to make our event a success. They were so great at what they do, they doubled our earnings and surpassed the goal we set! Looking forward to working with them again next year and many years to come!”

– AMANDA JONES at AMICA Rockwall

“I was put in charge of our organization’s Emerald Ball gala live auction three years ago. We had used livestock auctioneers in the past, with varying results and occasional last-minute no-shows. I did a search on Google for “Tulsa charity auctioneers” and up popped Rick Miller’s name. I filled out a contact form and the next day, talked to him on the phone for quite a while about our event and goals. We’ve used Fund Your Org and their auctioneer Jerry Shannon for three years now with significantly better results every year. The team has been helpful in getting us on the road to using auction software for payment, and we plan to expand next year to online bidding. Most profitable Google search I’ve ever done!”

“Rick is truly a master of his craft. He is an innovative fundraising professional who brings unique resources to every event and organization he is working to raise money for.

– AUTUMN WORTEN–NEW HOPE OKLAHOMA

“Rick and the team at Fund Your Org has been great to work with!
What I love about working with Fund Your Org is that they don’t come to the table with a “one-size fits all” approach. Every time we work together there is a customized strategy built to help the non-profit where I work exceed our goal expectations. They have taught us to push ourselves as it pertains to our fundraising and provide excellent professional development opportunities!”

– KENT BERRY, COMMUNITY HIGHER ED

“I’ve worked with Rick and his team on events for 4 years and they are great! He and his team are fantastic at raising money for our non-profit organization and very reliable and dependable! He is fun and entertaining and great at making a live auction run smoothly and keep the guests involved!”

– BECKY STANFORD, TULSA CHILDREN’S MUSEUM, ELECTRIC LIME GALA

“The team at Fund Your Org were masterful at facilitating a fundraising event for one of our clients. Our client loved the results they achieved and signed again for next year.”

– CLARENCE FISHER

“Rick Miller and his team at Fund Your Org have taken fundraising to a whole new level! Through strategic planning, consulting, and creativity, he creates an enthusiasm around your mission that surpasses expectations and makes giving a possible option for everyone at your event.”

– ASHLEY AHLERT, FT. SMITH CHILDREN’S EMERGENCY SHELTER

“Using the Fund Your Org team benefited us in many ways, primarily helping us develop a clear picture of what we were presenting to our guests and increasing the net profit. Walking in we had a vision but there were many holes, what-ifs, and inexperience in certain areas. Partnering with FYO allowed us to construct the perfect event with a team to answer questions and guide us to a better finished product. There is no question that our partnership led to success, the Live Auction/Live Ask numbers alone prove that it was the best decision we could have been made for our organization. We are a smaller non-profit, it would have been easy to snag up a free or less expensive auctioneer and not invest in a professional team… But we would not have had near the success, polish, professionalism, excitement, support, knowledge, or talent. Our first event not only sold out, we beat our fundraising goal by $30,000 and had three new sponsors reach out to us the following day- ready to sign up for next year. Rick & Lyndsey were the dream team and we plan to have them in our corner annually, without question.

If you are on the fence about using Fund Your Org, I urge you to stop and consider the potential income you might be turning away. Their auction team is the best in town, you *will* make up the financial cost in the long run. They are amazing at what they do and can draw donors from a room like nothing I have ever seen before. If you’re STILL on the fence, call me. <3”

– NATALIE ALEXANDER, Founder of Hearts of SteelL

“I have been exposed to Fund Your Org as a client with various organization’s major fundraising events hosting 250-750 people.  The engagement of the Fund Your Org team from the initiation of the event planning has always positively impacted the financial success of the “night of” fundraising activities.  With the experienced staff and strong leadership this team of professionals will seamlessly guide you to achieve maximum results.”

– TINA PARKHILL

“Rick is passionate about helping organizations raise as much as possible for their cause, and he has the expertise to match it. His enthusiasm is contagious.”

– ANGIE MATHIS–JA Mathis/Rumbledrum

“Rick has been very helpful in assisting us in refining our approach to our annual event. He has numerous contacts within the community which facilitates ease of enhanced audience involvement. The last two years have been our most profitable in the 7 years that we have been hosting an annual fundraising event allowing us to increase our programming and outreach to vulnerable populations in the Tulsa area. Looking forward to another great event this fall!”

– JANET DUVALL, TULSA GLASS BLOWING SCHOOL

“Rick is an incredible person who cares deeply about raising money for charity. If you are in fundraising or hosting a fundraising event, give Rick a call. He will help you take your event to a completely new level!”

– CHRIS JENNINGS–CHARITY BOOSTER

Rick Miller and the team at Fund Your Org helped us DOUBLE our revenue at our annual Harvest Dinner fundraising event for Tulsa Farmers Market! Can’t imagine working with anyone else! Highly recommended!

– PENNI SHELTON, TULSA FARMER’S MARKET

“I’ve used Rick for 3 years and he has taken our gala to another level, his expertise and professionalism is unmatched. I feel that Rick truly cares about our cause, he’s the first auctioneer I’ve used that has toured our agency, to see what we did firsthand. I would tell anyone and I have, hire Fund an Org, you will not regret it.”

– SANDRA THORTON, STREET SCHOOL

Rick and his staff do a great job maximizing opportunities that elevate your live auction!
