Donate Auction Items

Wondering how you can support the EFCT without reaching into your wallet? From event tickets to one-of-a-kind vacations, we are always on the look-out for unique, alluring auction items to tempt our guests at our fundraisers. Do you own a vacation home/timeshare, or membership in a golf club or boat club that is the envy of all your friends? Do you have season tickets to major sporting events?   Or perhaps you know someone who might be willing to provide an auction item to a great cause and receive some free publicity with our guests in return.  The ideas are endless, but you alone might be the missing link to unique items, experiences and adventures! We ask that all donated auction items be new, unused, and with original packaging.  And remember, the value of your item or service is fully tax-deductible.

Suggested Items:
- Retail Gift Cards
- Vacation home/timeshare/hotel stays
- Sporting Event or Concert Tickets
- Autographed items/Memorabilia
- Clothing & Accessories
- Jewelry
- Home Décor
- Children’s items
