Last Call to Donate to the 2016 AGO Silent Auction

The American Guild of Organists will be conducting its second biennial Silent Auction in connection with the AGO National Convention. We welcome your participation! The auction will be exclusively online from June 13–24 at and will be open to everyone, not just AGO members. Proceeds will benefit the AGO Annual Fund, which supports educational programming for youth and adults.

Do you have something you, your business, or your chapter could donate to the cause?

Your gift could be mileage and/or travel rewards; a time share; concert/theatre/sporting event tickets; a recital, lesson, masterclass, or an organ crawl; CD recordings or books; a convention registration; a membership to your favorite museum or a visit to your local zoo. Another option would be to donate a gift certificate from a local business or restaurant you frequent. Just about any gift you make will qualify for a charitable tax deduction for its fair market value.

Here is how you can participate:

Send us a brief description and digital image of the item you wish to donate or an image that is symbolic of it. E-mail this to me at Let us know the “fair market value” of your gift, your suggested minimum bid and/or reserve amount. The reserve amount is the lowest bid we would accept for your item. If the reserve is not met, the item does not sell. After the auction closes, I will send you the name and contact information of the winning bidder, then you will mail/ship your item at your own expense to the winner unless local pickup is required.

Please respond by Friday, June 10, if you plan to make a donation. If you have already made a donation, thank you!
