The WLIA Foundation has begun seeking items for the Online Silent Auction to be held during the 2021 WLIA Virtual Annual Conference from February, 15-19th. Every year the auction is held during the conference and the funds raised go toward higher education scholarships for students pursuing degrees in Geography, GIS and Geospatial Studies. Past years have enabled WLIA to provide three to four $1000.00 scholarships to students chosen from a pool of applicants.
Because the auction will be entirely online this year, it presents a new opportunity to contribute. We are asking donors to consider taking the extra step by either shipping the item to the winning bidder or providing a location and time for item pickup. WLIA will provide you with the winner’s mailing address after the auction or instruct the winners on where to pick up their item.
We’ve made it easy to donate online at the Charity Auction Today site. ***DONORS: Please note in the description field whether you will be shipping the item or scheduling a pickup.***
Can’t wait for the conference? Get a sneak peek at a few of the items already donated, here.
It’s for the kids!
