Donate An Item
Donating items to our auction catalog is a great way to support our fundraising efforts. We encourage you to be creative and invite our planners to participate in this opportunity. Why not consider providing lunch with your congressman; or providing a piece of art by a beloved artist; or extending a wine tour at a local Virginia winery? Of course hotel accommodations, airline tickets, transportation items, etc. are perennial winners.
MPI Potomac is the third largest MPI chapter in the world with over 750 members - 50% of whom represent the planner community (including association, corporate, government and independent planners), 45% of whom represent the supplier community and the remainder representing the student community.
MPI Potomac recognizes the value of its members who supply goods and services, and feel there should be additional benefits for those who help the chapter achieve its goals of superior professional development and networking opportunities.
Here are some reasons to consider a donation to the silent auction or providing a sponsorship:
- Proceeds received will also help augment the cost of professional development and other various member benefits of MPI Potomac
- You will receive recognition via Bidding For Good to over 300,000 online bidders and the evening of the event.

To submit an item donation to this auction, you will be asked to provide some information about the item you would like to donate, along with digital pictures of the item. If the donation has any restrictions we ask you elaborate on those in your posting. If your donation has an expiration date we ask to set the date for at the earliest April 25, 2018. Be sure to maximize your exposure and add pictures of the items, your company logo and website to your posting.
Once you post your donation, the auction committee will contact you by email after the item has been reviewed.
Please note: DO NOT SEND items to MPI Potomac. We will inform you of the winner and have you send the item directly to that winner after the auction.
