DONATION IDEAS AND INSPIRATIONS
We need your donations for the annual MP&MS auction! Every year, support and participation from our community for the silent, online and live auctions, as well as sponsorships and underwriting are required to make this event a success. No matter the shape or size of the contribution, we appreciate and applaud every time a parent gives.
“I don’t have anything to donate” you say? Don’t sell yourself short. Everyone frequents certain businesses and they are probably willing to make a donation if you ask. Do you have a fun hobby or special skill you could share? Do you work at a place someone might get excited about? Do you know someone else that does? Maybe you don’t have a vacation home to donate but have a parent or good friend that does. We bet you have more access to great things than you ever knew!
Ok,“What are you looking for?” you ask. “What would you love to bid on?” we reply. Here is a small sample of the many fantastic items we’ve received in the past(or wished for):
TRIPS AND GETAWAYS
Weekend getaways and trips, as well as luxurious travel destinations make up some of our most popular and profitable auction items. In addition to lodging and special destination activities, we need your airline miles and hotel points to put together truly memorable travel packages!
You can rest assured that we will not open bidding on your donated home to anyone outside the MP&MS community. Your property is in good hands.
Imagine those “once in a lifetime” events and experiences... Do you have access to private clubs, concerts, sporting events or the like? Do you know someone who knows someone who does?
We have many more examples and are limited only by your resources and creativity!
Each year, many of our extraordinary teachers are willing to donate their time and talent to offer us a student-friendly event or outing to auction. With your sponsorship support, we can make these memorable and priceless experiences for our kids.
From the restaurants and wineries you love, to the best spas and boutiques in your neighborhood, to your kids’ favorite hangouts, we are looking for you to approach your favorite community businesses to enlist their donation support. We can provide you with letters and donation forms to make it easy as pie.
The funds raised through this spirited event can only be realized through the generous donations and support of our parent and business communities. Please consider ways you might contribute.For questions regarding donations, please contact a member of our solicitations team:
