Online Silent Auction for Scholarships Opens Online
June 29, 2012
Using the services of the leading charity online auction company, BiddingforGood.com, the Education Board will conduct an online auction featuring various items donated by members and others interested in donating funds in support of the AACE International Scholarship Fund. Heading the auction fund raising effort will be Ann Marie Cox, a member of the Education Board who invites all members and interested parties to participate in the online auction.
“Our online auction offers such items such as timeshares, vacation homes rentals, sports memorabilia, wine, travel vouchers and similar items. The items donated are described online in detail and anyone with Internet access may bid,” Cox explained. Cox noted that because AACE International is a 501-c-3 organization, most donations will be eligible to be considered a charitable contribution depending upon the individual’s unique tax situation. Individuals should consult their tax adviser for details.
Approximately 20 items will also be available for a silent auction to be held in conjunction with Annual Meeting July 8-11 in San Antonio, TX. The silent auction will use the last online bid for the item as the starting bid and will close at 8:00 pm on Tuesday, July 10 during the Tuesday Night Toast.
