The Kentucky Home Birth Coalition is excited to announce our second online fundraising auction November 15 – 22, 2014.  OnlineAuction2Proceeds from the online auction will provide a major funding source for our advocacy activities during the 2015 Kentucky legislative session.  One of our major goals is to hire a lobbyist to assist in our efforts to pass legislation that would see Kentucky issue licenses to Certified Professional Midwives.  Our 2013 auction was extremely successful and raised over $3,000.

As a supporter of birthing options, we are proud to invite you to take a leading role in this fundraiser by donating an item to be auctioned.  Auction donation items 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.

To make a donation, please visit our Auction Page with the following information, no later than October 1:

  • Photos of item(s) to be donated

  • Description of item (please include location if donating a gift certificate to a local business)
