Each year the NASPA hosts a Silent Auction to fundraise for future General Assembly scholarships. In 2017, over 90 items were donated, resulting in funding for five scholarships for future events. We couldn't have done it without all the generous donations and the enthusiastic bids of our conference participants.
Items included everything from books, coffee mugs, water bottles, sunglasses, tote bags, t-shirts, sweatshirts, yoga mats, and so much more! Let's make 2018 even better! No item is ever too small. All donated items will be available to bid on throughout the conference. If you have any questions about the items you want to donate, please contact us.
