What is the Online Auction?

This year’s online auction will be from March 16-March 21st. Packed with a variety of items for the home, dining and travel opportunities as well as kids, camps activities and family fun, there’s always something for everyone. Last year this event raised more than $80K for our schools and we rely on this revenue to help us reach our year-end fundraising goal.

How do I view and bid on items?  

You will need to set up an account with Give Smart, our auction software before the auction opens at noon on March 16th, so you can be ready to bid right away. Once your account is confirmed you can preview the Online Auction Catalog items.

What are Sign Up Parties?

Parents volunteer to plan and host a variety of parties and your ticket price raises money for SPARK. These parent-hosted events range from hiking, yoga, and biking to cooking, painting, and cocktailing. Spots for parties are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Prices to attend the parties vary, depending on the time of day and activity. All of the money collected from the sign-ups are passed on to SPARK, so they not only raise money for the Foundation but also allow you to meet more families and make new friends! Whether it’s a big bash like a ping pong tournament or a smaller gathering like a hike up Mt. Tam we’ve got something for everyone.

SPARK tip: These events can sell out very quickly, so get online as soon as the auction opens at noon on March 16th.

What are Grade Level Baskets?

Grade Level Baskets were lovingly curated by each school’s grade level lead and items were generously donated by families. The baskets are so incredible that we’re saving a few to feature at the in-person spring soiree on April 23!

What is the Paddle Raise?

Every year at our event, we ask guests to raise their paddles to fund the gap so we can reach our fundraising goal. This is a critical component of our fundraising and you can participate whether you attend the event or not!
