2024 Silent Auction

Each year AHEAD awards scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students with disabilities nominated by AHEAD members, and to AHEAD members to advance their own academic study.  These $1000 scholarships are funded annually through fundraising activities, the most significant of which is the annual Silent Auction.  Since 2002 AHEAD members have raised, and AHEAD has provided, over $65,000.00 in scholarships!  

AHEAD members and Conference attendees are asked to donate items to be bid on during the Conference (see examples below).  The proceeds from this silent auction are used exclusively for student and member scholarships. We encourage your contributions to continue to make the Silent Auction a success!

Popular items from previous auctions:

  • Baskets with regional edibles (non-perishable only)
  • Arts and crafts representing regional areas        
  • Books relevant to disability issues
  • Get away trips
  • Gift cards to national stores/restaurants
