Benefit Auctioneer Specialist “Fundraising. Starts with FUN!”
To love what you do and feel that it matters--how could anything be more fun? ~ Katharine Graham (1917-2001), Publisher, The Washington Post
Capitalizing on her 12 years of experience as an executive director of a statewide nonprofit organization, fundraiser, event consultant, trainer, facilitator and public speaking coach led Gayle Stallings to create FUNauctions, a professional auction and event management company based in Austin, Texas.
Gayle specializes in benefit auctions and has completed courses to receive the National Auctioneers Association Education Institute's Benefit Auctioneer Specialist (BAS) designation. Less than 1% of Auctioneers throughout North America hold the BAS designation.
“Nothing is more FUN to me than waking up every morning and loving everything about the benefit auction business.What better way to combine all of my passions, expertise, and enthusiasm and put the FUN back into FUNdraising.”
Gayle understands how non-profit organization directors, staff and volunteers think when it comes to undertaking a benefit and charity auction. She knows how crucial the success of the annual gala and fundraiser is to the organization’s bottom line. She knows from her years of experience as an event consultant you can never plan too much or too far ahead.
Gayle is a graduate of the Texas Auction Academy and is member of the National Auctioneers Association and Texas Auctioneers Association. She graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Journalism from the University of Texas at Tyler.
