Since 2002, GRAMMY Charities has held year-round VIP experience and memorabilia auctions to support their charities, The GRAMMY Foundation® and MusiCares Foundation®. Top artists from every decade and category are represented and draw bidders from around the world. The charities depend upon Matchfire (previously Kompolt) to handle these valuable items with extreme care from the time they are picked up from GRAMMY Headquarters in Los Angeles to the time they reach their new owner. To date, total proceeds for the charities are almost $5 million.
