Silent Auction for Scholarships
The USC Aiken Alumni Council is asking you to lend a hand to help raise scholarship funds for current and future students. During the Third Leg of the Triple Crown – Pacers and Polo -- the Alumni Board sponsors a Silent Auction. This is an exciting event (held in late March or early April) that annually raises money exclusively for student scholarships. We are asking you or your organization to donate an item, service, or a gift certificate that we could auction off to the highest bidder.
It is a fun and easy way for you to support scholarships for USC Aiken students.
And best of all it is a wonderful tax deduction! After you donate, you will receive a gift in kind letter for tax deduction based on the retail value of your item or service. Furthermore, you will get recognition on the Silent Auction publicity materials.
