The WLIA Foundation has begun accepting items for the Online Silent Auction to be held during the 2021 WLIA Virtual Annual Conference. 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, we are asking donors to consider taking the extra step by either offering to ship the item to the winning bidder, or providing a location and time for item pickup. WLIA will be sure to get you the winner’s mailing address after the auction or instruct them where to pick up their item. Items like gift certificates and gift cards, that are easy to ship are especially welcome this year!
We’ve made it easy to donate online at the WLIA Online Auction site. Simply fill in the required fields, upload an image or two and submit! *Please note in the Description Field whether you will be shipping the item or scheduling a pickup.
