Save The Date
We will hold a silent auction to benefit our “sister” organization, the New Mexico Foundation for Women Entrepreneurs (NMFWE), at our May 21 DINNER meeting. NMFWE is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation.
This year we are asking that each donated item have a value of at least $25. We are also doing something new, if you donate an item that has a value of $100 or more.
If you donate an item that has a value of $100 or more, you will get a 30-second spot to tell about the item you’ve donated at the May meeting. (The $100 value has to be on a single item not a combination of two or three items.) We also accept cash donations in lieu of an auction item.
Your items can be brought to the May meeting, but please get them there by 4:30 p.m. so we can have everything set up before our members and guests arrive to start bidding.
All of the funds that are raised at the silent auction go directly to the foundation to be used for education, training, scholarships and loans for women entrepreneurs. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by tax law.
This is a great way to promote your business or an associate’s business, and it is also a good time to purchase gifts. Items that usually sell well include:
- gift certificates for lunches/dinners
- tickets to events
- rounds of golf
- sports memorabilia
- hotel and vacation packages
- airline tickets,
- jewelry and unusual clothing items
- spa services
- original artwork.
To donate auction items or cash, please complete the Auction Donor Form (Word Doc; 200K) and return it by mail, email, or fax as indicated on the form. For questions regarding the auction, email Roberta Salas.
Thank you for supporting our philanthropic efforts!
