Ways to support this year’s Auction:

  • Place your web-linked logo on our Silent Auction webpage for $50. Every time guests bid, they will notice your ad indicating support.
  • Consider making a $40 donation to PILS; after all, there is no cost to attend the event this year. (Tickets to attend in past years have been $40.)
  • Donate an item for silent auction. Fill out the donation form HERE. Gift cards are always a favorite and are easy to mail. The possibilities are endless—Boswell Books, Sendik’s, the Marquette Spirit Shop, Colectivo Coffee, Sobelmans, and the Milwaukee Public Market are a few local ideas. And, of course, there are mainstays like Uber, Netflix, and Starbucks.
  • Bid often on fantastic experiences and items—many of which you can enjoy from home.
  • Fund a fellow. A PILS Fellowship provides support of $4,800. Donating the equivalent of a summer fellowship is game-changing for a student.
