Auction Donation Inspirations

Help us have a successful auction with your donations!!

Donations are the most critical component of a successful auction. We use these gifts to raise the funds needed to support vital programs for Walnut Acres Elementary. Programs that are impacted each year include art, science, reading, theater, PE, and technology.

Do you or anyone you know have something great to donate?

Must have big ticket items!

    • Lodging near great cities or attractions

    • Tickets to area events

    • Limo Services

    • Pixar, Google, or Facebook tours

Who do you know?

    • The manager of a local restaurant? Next time you dine, ask them if they will donate.

    • An owner of a timeshare, cottage, cabin or condo? Let them know that by donating they qualify for a tax deduction.

    • The concierge or manager at a hotel you frequent for business will often donate 1-2 night stays.

Other donation opportunities!

    • Unused airline miles or hotel points

    • Unused gift cards

    • Wine, liquor, or spirits

Host a buy-in party!

A buy-in party is where several families or friends co-host a party or activity on a date of their choosing. You could “buy-in” or purchase a spot to attend.

    • Ladies Parties (spa party, themed cocktail party, game night party)

    • Men’s Party (sports, pool, ping-pong, poker)

    • Kid’s Party (tea party, sports day, swim party, movie night, 5th grade grad night)

Any and all donations are welcome!
