Silent Auction to Benefit Graduate Student Travel Fund

It is that exciting time of year again when we all convene for our Annual International Conference. I can’t wait to see you all again in Detroit at the end of October!

For our sixth year in a row, the C. R. Anderson Foundation will hold a Silent Auction to benefit the Graduate Student Travel Grants. Our graduate students bring fantastic ideas and energy to our organization. Receiving a travel grant certainly helped my entrance into this organization six years ago, and I am so happy to be here and contribute. This Silent Auction is very beneficial to the future of our organization.

If you would like to donate, please visit and fill in the donor information (which includes your name, your item title, a picture of your item, it’s value, and a starting bid - if necessary). Your donation to ABC affiliate, the C. R. Anderson Foundation, 501(c)(3), is deductible to the extent allowed by law.  Please contact Becky Crews ( if you have any questions.  If you are not coming to the conference, consider a gift certificate that you can email to me.

Any and all donations are welcome for the silent auction. Maybe you have a home that could be used for a weekend getaway. Or, maybe you have an artist friend who makes really unique items. Or, maybe you are the artist and would like to donate something you’ve created. Gift cards, books, tickets for sporting events, and university swag have all been popular donations in the past – any of these make great donations!
