Auction for Climate Action

Auction for Climate Action is a voluntary initiative, generating donations by auctioning art & design for climate protection projects.

There are three ways in which donations can be generated:
1) There are several possibilities via live events, but especially live auctions.
2) Art can be presented at exhibitions in restaurants, doctor practices, salons, etc., with simultaneous online auctions through us.
3) Online auctions can take place again as soon as we have reached a certain size and visibility. These will mainly take place in the respective posts on Instagram. They will also be displayed here as (Instagram) posts (buttons below) and on Facebook and on LinkedIn so that others can also bid. There are various contact options for the creative contributors. so that others can bid as well, depending on the contact option of the of the artist or designer.

How does it work?

Artists or designers can offer a work of art or object for auction without any additional fees. The auctions through us give you the opportunity to bid for these works and „incidentally“ donate to our climate. Everyone can take part in the online auctions.

Everyone involved benefits from this form of auction! Works of art or design objects find a new home and the happy owners reimburse the financial costs (as stated or 10% of the bid, whichever is more) for the artists and donate to climate protection measures. The creators have the opportunity to make an even greater impact with their art and donate without financial means. The new owners will forever associate a special story with the artwork.

The bid is simply written to the artist in social media posts or by email. The bidder with the highest bid at the end makes the payment and receives the work. There are no further costs. Climate protection is a matter close to our hearts, which is why art & design is offered on a voluntary basis without any fees. The transaction takes place directly and without any detours between the creative creators and bidders. We are not involved in the process.

For all payments, please note the reference „AfCA, date of auction“ so that NGOs know it is auction proceeds. Thank you!

The general terms of use and data protection provisions apply.
