Thank you for your interest in supporting the auction industry through the Foundation. The Foundation has helped the auction industry in many ways. Because of the Foundation’s support, we enjoy many more opportunities in the auction industry today.
We have many gift options for you to consider (please see the list below). Best of all, you will know your gift will directly benefit the auction industry, and … as the Foundation is a 501 (c) 3, your gift may be tax deductible!
We appreciate every gift of any amount. Thanks for considering giving through the Foundation. Through you we can help fund the success of the auction profession from the rookie auctioneer to the veteran auctioneer!

Give in the Future
Memorial/Tribute: Enjoy the benefits of personalized, flexible charitable giving through a variety of methods and opportunities. Gifts can be assets of any kind, cash, stock, mutual fund shares, real estate, etc. You may create a lasting tribute to a loved one or respected colleague through a memorial gift. You may choose to establish a personal fund to create a family legacy of philanthropy; or you may take advantage of other planned giving vehicles to arrange a meaningful gift after providing for your heirs.
Planned Giving: Planned giving is finding ways to make charitable gifts now or after your lifetime while enjoying financial benefits for yourself. Planned gifts are sometimes referred to as “stop-and-think” gifts because they require some planning and, often, help from your professional advisors. Unlike cash donations, they are typically made from assets in your estate rather than disposable income, and come to fruition upon your death.
