Instructions: How to Donate & What to Expect... Important Information for Artists
All charitable donations to be auctioned on Charitybuzz must be submitted in full by the date noted above.
DO NOT COMPLETE THIS FORM IF YOUR ARTWORK IS NOT VALUED AT $1000 OR HIGHER
Your donation is not complete until all documents are submitted; all documents must be submitted simultaneously.
A complete donation is 2 parts and entails:
a) completing this form in full, noting the donation percentage and if it has a reserve. If you fail to provide this information, your donation will be considered at 100% to the charity.
b) this form must also be sent with the artist bio, .jpeg of the work,* W9 form and certificate of authorship (if available). EMAIL IT ALL TO RONNETTE@ARTISTSWRITERSGAME.ORG or upload the documents to this form.
c) uploading the information to Charitybuzz and filling out ALL information requested.
The subject should adhere to this format: A&W 2017 [YOUR NAME] CB DONOR FORM
If everything is in order, you should receive a confirmation email. The link to the donation page can be located on the Artists and Writers website: AWGame.org. There should be a link to the Charitybuzz page. If you have any problems uploading, please email us.
After your donation is uploaded on the web and we receive all the necessary forms, people will bid on your artwork. When the auction ends, allow 60 days to receive an email stating if your piece sold, who it was sold to, and the final bid on your artwork.
Note: Charitybuzz takes 20% of all final bid with a minimum of $200 per item if it sells below $1000.
Donations of 50%: You will receive a check for half the amount of the final bid after Charitybuzz’s fee.**
Eg. If the final bid is $1000, Charitybuzz will take $200 and your check will be written for $400 – half of the remaining bid.
Please allow up to 75 days from the close of the auction to receive this check. All checks will be sent to the mailing address written on page 1, unless otherwise noted.
In an effort to attain as much support for our charities as possible, Artists and Writers reserves the right to hold artwork during multiple phases of the online auction – up to 6 months – unless otherwise stated by the donor. I.e., we want your work to sell as much as you do. In the event your piece doesn’t sell and the auction is extended, we will retain the work in an attempt to have it bid upon.
