United Way of the Coalfield and your local agencies greatly appreciate your donations, whether you are donating items to auction and/or bidding on auctions listed below. Please know that your bid must be higher than the current bid. All devices/browsers may not be up-to-date to the current bid if not refreshed but the auction will not allow for a lower bid to be taken so the system will provide you with the required bid amount to place the next bid.

4. This auction works like the following example:
- John enters a Maximum Bid of $20 on an auction with a starting bid of $10.
- John is currently winning the auction at $10, the starting bid.
- Mary places her Maximum Bid of $40, but since John had bid only up to $20 he is now beaten by Mary’s bid.
- The current bid is now $20 with Mary winning.
- John decides to bid $30, the most he is willing to pay, and enters it.
- Since Mary had entered $40 as her Maximum Bid her current bid price will increase to match John’s Maximum Bid of $30.
- Therefore the current bid now goes up to $30, and Mary continues to win.
- The auction closes soon at $30 with Mary winning. Mary then will go to the DONATE button on the United Way of the Coalfield homepage and pay for her auction item (NOTE: any donations higher than the actual winning bid are welcomed)
