Donations requested by October 30.

Our most popular fundraiser is BACK! Our fall online auction will be November 4-11, 2017. Proceeds from the online auction will provide a major funding source for our advocacy during the 2018 Kentucky legislative session.

This is a great opportunity to get statewide (and beyond!) exposure for your business while helping out a phenomenal cause. Each listing will contain photos of your donation and/or business logo in addition to your page/website/contact info to draw even more business! We will also do donor shout-outs across various social media platforms.

Auction donations should be new or newly made and can take a variety of forms from goods to services. Examples include handmade goods; jewelry; gift certificates to a local business, restaurant, or for services; “birthy” items; baby gear; or whatever type of product you provide.  Items do not have to pertain to women, babies, or birth, but it is fine if they do! Every donation helps us get closer to our goal of improving birth options in Kentucky. Direct Marketing, handmade, purchased items…any and all donations welcome! See below for examples of past auction items.
