Silent Auction

Foundation of the Texas Telephone Association – Silent Auction

The Foundation of the Texas Telephone Association is a non-profit organization, which provides scholarships for graduating high school seniors in Texas who are pursuing education at an institution of higher learning. Since 1993, the Foundation has provided more than $500,000 in scholarships to qualifying seniors. This endeavor is primarily funded through the Foundation’s Silent Auction, which is held at the annual TXConnect Membership Summit in San Antonio.  

The Silent Auction will take place on Tuesday, August 17, 2021. Bidding will open on Tuesday morning and end at 9:30 PM that evening with winners to be announced afterwards.  We are currently asking for items to be donated for the silent auction. 

Interested in Donating an Item?

To properly stock the shopping table, the Foundation is seeking 20-25 items to auction with a minimum retail value of at least $500, with our goal being to raise $20,000.  Any items or cash received to support the silent auction are fully tax deductible. 

With your generous donation, your company’s logo will be posted on the TTA website, the TXConnect Membership Summit on-site signage, and social media outlets.  

If you are interested in donating items, we’re collecting information via this form: https://alchetec.formstack.com/forms/txconnect_membership_summit_silent_auction_prize_submission.  

Please complete the form by July 1, 2021. Plan on dropping off your donated item(s) at the TXConnect Summit on Monday, August 16.
