Would You Like to Donate a Silent Auction Item/Package or Raffle Prize? 

We are very grateful for donations to our silent auctions and/or raffle prizes for our gala. Our supporters are your target customers!

Each donation will be considered on a case-by-case basis based on donations already received, and the likelihood that it will be purchased. Thank you!

We accept donations for the following auctions/raffle:

  • Gala Auction – Sunday, December 4, 2022 (Auction starts online one month prior to the gala for great visibility!)
  • Gala Raffle – Sunday, December 4, 2022
  • Holiday Auction – This year, combined with the gala auction
  • Mother’s Day Auction – Start Date April 10, 2022 (Auction starts online one month before Mother’s Day)

Auction Details:

 

Please note the following guidelines:

  • A large percentage of our supporters are plant-based/vegan, and our mission is plant-based. All items must be vegan/consistent with vegan values.
  • Preferred values of at least $500 for the Silent Auction, and $100 for the Raffle.
  • Minimum value of $100 for the Silent Auction (we accept a limited number of lower cost items, please inquire), and minimum value of $50 for the raffle (raffle items less than $100 may be combined with other items less than $100).
  • For the Silent Auction, we ask for you to both donate item/package AND ship physical item donations directly to the winner. We will notify you of the winner within 2 days of the end of the auction. For the raffle we ask that you ship the items to us. We will let you know where to ship. 
  • IF your donation can ONLY be redeemed by people in a local area, the local area should be a large city so that there is a good chance we have supporters there. Some examples are: restaurants meals, massages, local bakeries, local experiences.
  • We do not accept coaching sessions. Our years of experience has shown us that coaching sessions/private cooking lessons (unless with big name celebrities), and other similar experiences do not sell on our silent auctions. If you are a coach, we value your work and are sincerely grateful for your interest, however, we cannot accept these generous offers for our Silent Auctions or Raffles.
  • It is rare that we accept Items that require CHSF to make a payment for the silent auction item, but we are happy to hear your pitch if you have something that is truly unique and of interest to the vegan/plant-based community. Items that we may consider that fall under this category include trips and celebrity experiences. For these types of items, we have to require high minimums so that a majority of the total payment from our supporters actually supports our programs, rather than supporting a company that sells experiences. This makes it less likely to sell. 

 

To offer an auction item/package or raffle prize, contact the person who reached out to you or:

amie@healthyschoolfood.org

kelley@healthyschoolfood.org

 

Please include:

  • Item/package description.
  • Value.
  • Up to 4 images (one should be your company logo).
  • Confirmation that the product does not contain any animal products or involve any animal suffering.
  • For the silent auction, normally bidding begins at about 50% of value. This is typical for auctions. If that is a problem, please let us know what minimum you would require.
  • Any restrictions.

We will get back to you at our earliest convenience to confirm acceptance of your donation.  

 

Thank you for considering a donation! We look forward to hearing from you!
