I specialize in fundraising for schools – because well, I’m the father of a beautiful, school-going daughter… but I’m available for just about any charitable organization, I’m a supporter of environmental issues, the arts, women’s causes, and I am a complete sucker for ANYTHING involving children

I won’t mince words with this – Not only do I typically raise more money than traditional auctioneers – but you and your guests will have more fun doing it. Period.

If you’re raising money for a school, organization or cause…any cause – you need me.

They say the “devil’s in the details”. No truer words were ever spoken, especially when it comes to fundraising.No organization “wildly exceeds their fundraising expectations” without planning. Keith Fox works with you, and your committee, helping you with a myriad of revenue generating ideas and concepts that will ensure success.

Keith Fox will help you focus on the fundraising components of the benefit auction event, item acquisition, audience development, additional revenue items, contractual agreements, timeline planning, script-writing, public relations, item order, and “Fund-A-Need” planning for maximum emotional impact.

Successful events don’t just “happen”. They’re carefully planned and professionally executed.  It’s rare that anyone can just “show up” the night of the event and hit a “home run”.  It doesn’t work that way, but I suppose that even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then.  But is that the kind of chance you want to take? Gone are the days an auctioneer can just get up and sell items to the highest bidder.

Remember, it’s not necessarily the money you make at the event – but the money that gets left in the room when you don’t hire a professional BAS auctioneer that offers consultation in the pre-planning process.

I am now more qualified than ever to help you raise funds for your organization having earned my Benefit Auctioneer Specialist (BAS) designation.

BAS is a two-part educational program which trains auction professionals to enhance their services to customers.  The BAS program is offered through the National Auctioneers Association (NAA) Education Institute and is taught by nationally recognized Auctioneers and professionals who serve the benefit auction industry.

Keith Fox is also a current member of the National Auctioneers Association.  (NAA).

Earning the BAS designation requires not only completion of the coursework, but also testing, submission of specialized reports and various experiential projects.

As a BAS graduate, I am among less than 275 of Auctioneers in the WORLD, and only about 25 in California with specialized training in benefit auctions.

I am currently the only auctioneer in this immediate area who holds the BAS designation.

Keith Fox is the only professionally trained, BAS Auctioneer in the US with over 30 years of unequaled entertainment experience. UNEQUALED.

Keith Fox has been in the entertainment industry since 1986.  Beginning as a Club DJ at famous nightclubs such as; Bobby McGee’s, Red Onion, Baxters, Club Xenon, California Black Angus Restaurants, and the Marriott Hotel in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah.  He was also the entertainment director for the San Francisco Airport Marriott Hotel.  Keith Fox has worked in clubs in Colorado, Utah, and California.

He was entertainer of the year for California Black Angus Restaurants.  Twice.  He was considered for offstage announcing of the Oscars and was the regional winner for the Game Show Networks “National Coast-To-Coast-Search-For-A-Host”, enabling him to host many pilot project game shows for major production studios.

He currently has two game show concepts registered with the Writers Guild.

Keith Fox has over 30 years of real world, “in-the-trenches-thinking-on-your-feet” MC/DJ, acting & improv experience. He has unparalleled experience in working with, and entertaining an incredibly diverse demographic of clientele.

He has attended prestigious acting & improvisation classes conducted by Howard Fine, Margie Haber and the AIA Actors Studio.  He has appeared on stage as “Sir Henry Baskerville” in “The Hound Of The Baskervilles”, and was the weatherman for a local cable news network, studying radio programming and production, and television programming and production at renowned Ohlone College in Fremont, CA.

Fun.  Shouldn’t it be fun? While some events require a reserved, elegant approach – others can be sassy, comedic or commanding – I believe it’s essential to have great material and dialogue to keep an audience entertained, and laughing. Auction attendees are also getting younger. With social media and busy lifestyles, they have shorter attention spans and are looking to be entertained.

I know what to say and when to say it – I know how hard to push and when to ease up, I know how to say things in just the right way to maximize people’s giving instincts – I approach what I do with a serious, yet light-hearted and professional approach.  I’m no comedian – but I get people to laugh, and laughter is truly the universal language, and often the key to people’s hearts.

You can see my “entertainment style” by checking out my videos here – I keep my videos simple and “true-to-performance”, by not making them too “slick” or overly “produced” or “stylized”, this way, you get a more honest representation of who I am and how I entertain and conduct an auction.

I won’t mince words with this, not only do I help raise more money than traditional “auctioneers”, but you and guests will have more fun doing it.

You want an ambassador – someone who will represent you and your cause and get everyone to “jump on board” and “rally” behind you.  Keith Fox goes way beyond just helping you raise funds – he gets people to “buy into” you, and your organization.  You need your guests to believe in your organization, become passionate, and believe in what you’re doing – this is what cultivates philanthropic giving.

You simply cannot get that from an auctioneer who just shows up the night of your event to “call bids” at your live auction event.  How could you?  Keith Fox gets to know you and your organization during the collaborative process – fully investing in you and your cause.  Your auctioneer needs to understand your mission so that your guests can understand your mission.  Ultimately, turning attendees into long-term donors.

As you are well aware of, non-profit organizations are always competing for funding. That means we need to work with you to keep YOUR donors focused on YOUR organization. There is now a whole new generation of donors is looking for more. They want to be part of a giving experience that all of their friends will be talking about and that they can post on social media.

I specialize in fundraising for schools – because well, I’m the father of a beautiful, school-going daughter… but I’m available for just about any charitable organization, I’m a supporter of environmental issues, the arts, women’s causes, and I am a complete sucker for ANYTHING involving children.
