Families » Auction


The SOF Annual Auction is one of our main fundraisers throughout the year. In the past it has been an in person event at a restaurant. In recent years it has been an online only event. School of the Future’s auction is sponsored by its Parents’ Association, and all donations are tax deductible.

You can participate in this event by joining the Auction Committee, soliciting goods and services and offering your own, bidding on items, and encouraging friends and family to do the same. Family involvement is key to achieving our goals, and your contributions of any size will make a difference.

Reach out to us with any questions - [email protected].
