Title: READ THIS FIRST!

Did you know that the Genesee Valley Audubon Society (GVAS) has a nonprofit account on eBay (http://donations.ebay.com/charity/charity.jsp?NP_ID=34234)? The proceeds from its auctions and sales are used to help fund Rfalconcam.

Rfalconcam plans to auction off or sell various donated collectibles through the GVAS account. Announcements of these activities will be posted here on the Fundraising board.

Since GVAS is a registered nonprofit on eBay, any eBay seller can elect to give a portion of their proceeds to GVAS. When listing an item on eBay, the seller simply selects GVAS from the list of eBay Giving Works Nonprofits and chooses the percentage of the selling price to donate. (This is a charitable contribution and may be tax-deductible.)  In addition, the seller receives a credit for the listing fees. See how it works (http://www.ebaygivingworks.com/about-howitworks.html).

Any forum member who sells an item on eBay and donates a portion of the proceeds to GVAS may announce that item on this board. The member's auction/sale gets additional visibility and Rfalconcam gets additional financial support. It's a win-win situation!
