The annual NAME auction is one of the highlights of the conference…a chance to have fun, bid on unique aquatic-themed items donated by NAME members and local businesses, and raise money for our mini-grant and scholarship fund! All of the funds raised at our annual silent and live auction go to support educators with scholarships and mini-grants to help them share the wonders of the world of water.
This year, our auction will be virtual! While we are still working out the details, we are excited to debut this new way to raise funds that will help expand our audience and provide resources for our members.
Due to the online format of the auction this year, we will be focusing our efforts on collecting donations that can be emailed or easily mailed, like gift cards or certificates. If you or an organization you know would like to contribute to this cause, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
