Target Funding Group of Florida

Maureen and John Winter have provided advice, services and products to charity auctions for more than a decade. Thousands of nonprofit organizations have bought their books listen to their on-line seminars, and hundreds of organizations use their software.

Maureen Winter started participating in charity auctions in 1989 when she was asked to chair an auction at her children's private school. She embraced the challenge with great enthusiasm and the event was a great success. Subsequently she co-chaired another auction with Anne Connelly and that task created a bond between the two women that has lasted 25 years. They wanted to share their experience with other volunteers and co-authored "Going...Going...Gone", a 225 page comprehensive workbook on organizing a charity auction.

In 1996 she teamed with her husband to actively administrate fundraising auctions for schools and other charitable organizations. In the last 20 years they have participated in more than 450 auctions and helped those organizations create efficient, highly profitable and successful events resulting in the raising of more than $25,000,000.

John Winter enjoyed a career in insurance before devoting himself full-time to charity auctions. John organizes the newsletter, which has 28,000 subscribers, designs the AuctionCheckout Pro(now BidStation) software and combines with Maureen to author "The Winning Bidder Is" a 100 page detailed plan for a successful auction night. He implements all the computer operations at the auctions the firm is retained to manage.

They reside in West Palm Beach, Florida and manage auctions nationwide, and conduct monthly webinars on charity auctions.
