2023 PSA Endowment Fund Silent Auction and Donations Request

After a two-year hiatus, the Silent Auction is back!

We look forward to welcoming you to the Pacific Sociological Association’s 94th Annual Conference in Bellevue, Washington, from March 30 to April 2, 2023. The Endowment Committee is proud to sponsor this Silent Auction initiative, the proceeds from which will provide Student Travel Grants to the PSA. Providing support to our graduate and undergraduate students is an ongoing commitment of the PSA, continuing in the pursuit of our mission to motivate and support the next generation of sociologists.

We ask you to consider contributing one or more items that will be up for bidding in the auction. Suggested items include candy, coffee, books, framed art, and hand-made clothing items. The items do not need to be expensive, but they should be small and portable. Use the link below to register your commitment to provide a Silent Auction item.

There will be designated auction tables in the registration area where items can be checked in. Auction-bid sheets will indicate the name of the donor and the minimum bid for each item. The bidding period will close on Saturday evening, and the items must be picked up and paid for by noon on Sunday. Winning bidders can pay by cash, check, or credit card.

Additionally, members may also support the Endowment Fund through an online donation to the PSA (e-store), easily available when renewing your PSA membership. Please help us increase funding towards Student Travel Grants Awards.

We look forward to seeing you at the conference, and we thank you for your continued support of the PSA Endowment Fund!
