ABA Foundation Live & Silent Auction, Purses for a Purpose

Each year the ABA Foundation awards $100,000 in scholarships to ABA members' dependents and future leaders of the industry. We fund the scholarship program through events at ABA's Marketplace including the Live & Silent Auctions, Purses for a Purpose Raffle and Afterglow event.

We are currently soliciting donations to help fund the 2022 scholarship year and are asking you to donate an item or package to this year's auctions.

By donating to the ABA Foundation, you will not only be supporting the next generation of leaders in our industry, but you are also promoting yourself in front of all delegates attending Marketplace. You will also receive recognition throughout ABA's publications, Marketplace publications and on ABA's social media. And your contribution is tax deductible.

Supporting the ABA Foundation is one of the best ways you can invest in your business, your employees, their families and our industry. Your donation has a tremendous impact on the families we support.
