The Marlin Art Guarantee: Profits


Marlin Art agrees to pay your organization a specified cash amount OR

a substantial percentage of the total, whichever is greater!


Since 1969, Marlin Art has enabled organizations across the United States to make money while having fun.  Great times and great profits go hand-in-hand with a Marlin fundraising art auction.

Thousands of nonprofit organizations have benefited from the success of a Marlin Art fundraising art auction.    Here is how...

  • Commission from auction sales or our minimum guarantee (see below).

  • Commissions throughout the year from artwork purchased throughout the year- on location at our Deer Park headquarters, on the phone, or on our new webstore (launching Summer 2015) 

  • Your organization receives 100% of the profits from all ticket sales.

  • Your organization receives 100% of the profits from ad sales.

  • Your organization receives 100% of the profits from patron & benefactor programs.

  • Your organization receives 100% of the profits from all donated  and raffle items.  Marlin will auction a limited number of donated items provided by your organization at no additional fee.  

  • Marlin Art will donate a beautifully framed piece of artwork that can be used as either a raffle or a door prize at the auction- your organization keeps 100% of all proceeds from the raffle.

  • Marlin provides a full range of auction services including catalogues, bidding numbers, receipts, and hardware to hang the art.
