Silent Auction

Silent Auction 2016

Did you know that one of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy’s biggest annual fundraising activities is also one of its most fun events for members? The silent auction at our annual conference gives attendees the chance to take home rare Wright memorabilia, original artwork and photography, unique collectible items, exclusive tours of private homes, overnight stays at Wright sites across the country, brand-new and out-of-print books, and much more, all while supporting the Conservancy’s year-round efforts to preserve the legacy of Wright and protect his remaining structures.

Last year, thanks to the generosity of our donors and bidders, the silent auction featured more than 170 items and was one of the most financially successfully auctions we’ve had in the last 10 years. This year, we’re seeking your help to make it even better. All auction items will be on display throughout the conference, and final bidding will be held at our gala dinner and Wright Spirit Awards ceremony on Nov. 5. This year we are also working toward having select items available for online bidding by the entire membership.

The success of our auction—and the important financial contribution it presents for the Conservancy—depends on people like you, who’ve donated items and experiences in the past. Won’t you please help us in our efforts by donating a unique item or tour experience again this year? If you have something that appeals to lovers of architecture and design, we’d love to include it in the auction.

All proceeds from the auction support our mission of preserving Wright’s remaining structures. Your donation will be recognized in the auction catalog distributed to all attendees and after the auction you will receive a written acknowledgment of your donation for tax purposes. For details on how to donate please download the donation form. The completed form should be mailed with your item(s) to the address listed by Thursday, Sept. 1.

Thank you for contributing to our silent auction!
