Lock In Your Bid. The Ending Hunger Online Auction Is Live

The annual online auction to benefit the Campaign for Ending Hunger is officially open. Thanks to the incredible generosity of our credit union family, we have over 70 items up for grabs. This year’s auction has it all including gift cards, concert and baseball tickets, camping gear, baskets, and more! Credit union staff, League and Synergent employees, and friends and families of our teams are welcome to participate in this important fundraiser to benefit Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger.

How It Works

On any personal device, (for example your smartphone, computer, or tablet) go to https://campaignforendinghunger.org/auction.

Click Auction to view all items up for bid.

If you find an item you like, select it. From here you can BID on the item or WATCH the item. Certain items have a BUY NOW feature.

If you choose to bid on, watch, or buy an item, you will be prompted to create an account.

  • Step 1: Enter your email address and create a password.
    • If you bid on an item during our last auction, you may already have an account. If you have forgotten your login information, click SIGN IN, enter your email address, and then click “forgot your password.”
  • Step 2: Enter your first and last name and your mobile phone number.
    • Once you have completed these steps, you will receive a text message containing a link that will automatically direct you to the auction website on your mobile device. If you do not want to view and/or bid on items using your mobile device, go to https://campaignforendinghunger.org/auction using your computer or tablet. SIGN IN using your email address and password.
  • Step 3: You will be prompted to provide a credit card number if you BID or BUY NOW.
  • Step 4: After submitting a bid, you will be prompted to set a MAX BID. If you enter a max bid, the auction platform (OneCause®) will automatically bid on your behalf using the bid increments you provided.

If you are outbid on an item, you will receive a text message. Alternatively, you can always check on the status of your bid by navigating to the YOUR ACTIVITY tab. After the auction closes at 2:45 pm on May 13, be sure to check if you are the highest bidder.

Collecting Your Auction Item(s)

If you placed a winning bid, you can collect your item(s) on May 13 at the League’s Annual Convention at the Holiday Inn By the Bay between 3:30 – 4:30 pm. You also can arrange to pick up your item(s) at the League’s office. To arrange a pick-up, please email Jen Burke at jburke@mainecul.org. If you do not live in the Greater Portland area and will not be attending Convention, your items will be mailed to you by May 31.

Remember to bid high and often! Money raised will help Maine credit unions continue feeding our neighbors in need.
