How You Can Help


The success of our auction is due to the generosity of school families who obtain and donate nearly 100% of our offerings. We can’t make it happen with your support!! 


Here are some ways you can get involved:


 - Donate to the Class Basket 

Every grade level has a Class Basket that will be featured in the Silent Auction. We encourage every family to donate, at the very least, to the Class Basket.  This is an extremely important part of the Silent Auction and one of the biggest draws. Very specific baskets are being put together with the help of Class Basket Collectors for each grade. Look for emails from your Class Basket Collector with information on how to donate, what your basket theme is and how you might help! Keep in mind, that the Gala and Silent Auction is not only our biggest fundraising event of the year, but a great source of pride for our children! You may donate to class baskets using the links available below under "Class Basket Donation Links."


- Consider donating an item or service directly to the auction!

Do you provide a service or have access to something that would make a nice offering at the Silent Auction…a cabin, tickets to sporting events, backstage passes or private tour…. doing taxes, landscape services, financial planning, interior design?  Consider donating your time or expertise as an item for the silent auction. 


- Obtain donations outside the South Bay

While the Silent Auction team has canvassed many of the local businesses on behalf of the school, we would love to have your support in bringing in donations from outside our community.  Suggestions include a favorite hotel or bed and breakfast that you frequent up or down the coast, a place you go for dinner when you do business in Orange County or San Diego, or even a favorite broker, banker, insurance or real estate agent that you have worked with over the years, who might be willing to sponsor or donate.  Many businesses are happy to get the advertising, help out a non-profit organization, and connect with potential new clients.


For your convenience, we have included a solicitation letter, and both donation and sponsorship forms, below. You may provide these forms to potential donors. More letters and donor forms are available in the school office. Many thanks for your consideration and generous support!
