About the Silent Auction
The IFMA Education Foundation holds its Annual Silent Auction during IFMA’s Presidents Conference. We ask your help in providing donations for the Auction in order for this event to be as successful as possible! This is the Foundation’s largest fundraiser and a substantial amount of funds are raised through this Auction.
Please help by making a donation and show your support of the next generation of foodservice leaders! Donating a gift to the Foundation for display in the Silent Auction is a wonderful way to showcase your company’s quality products and services. In addition to generating funds for the Foundation, your generous auction donation will provide your company with advertising and exposure.
All donations need to be accompanied by a completed In-Kind Donation Form (below) and must be submitted with the item(s) by October 4, 2019. This event will not be successful without your help. Thank you for your willingness to get involved and help make a difference!
