AHEAD 2015: Silent Auction Information

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 $100,000.00 in scholarships!

Please join us in this super-fun Conference activity while also contributing to a great cause! 

AHEAD members and Conference attendees are asked to donate quality items from their college or university, hometown, personally handcrafted items, or similar, to be bid on during the Conference. The proceeds from this silent auction are used exclusively for student and member scholarships. We would be proud to have an item from you, your college or university or your home town for the Silent Auction. We need your help to continue to make the Silent Auction a success!

Popular items from previous auctions: :

  • Baskets with regional edibles
  • Arts and crafts representing regional areas
  • Books relevant to disability issues
  • Get away trips
  • Gift cards to national stores/restaurants
  • College/University apparel
