Silent Auction

Foundation of the Texas Telephone Association – Silent Auction

The Foundation of the Texas Telephone Association (TTAF) is a 501c3 non-profit, which provides scholarships for graduating high school seniors in Texas who are pursuing education at an institution of higher learning. Since 1993, the TTAF has provided more than $500,000.00 in scholarships to qualifying seniors. This endeavor is primarily funded through the TTAF Silent Auction, which is held at the TXConnect Membership Summit, formerly known as the TTA annual convention.

The Foundation of the Texas Telephone Association Silent Auction will take place at the TXConnect Membership Summit starting on Tuesday, August 19. Bidding will end at 9:30 PM that evening and winners will be announced at 9:45 PM.

We are currently asking for items to be donated for the silent auction.

Interested in Donating an Item?

To properly stock the shopping table, TTA is seeking 20-25 items to auction with a minimum retail value of at least $500, with our goal being to raise $20,000. If $500 is outside of your budget, don’t worry! Any cash amounts received in the name of the silent auction will be combined, and an item will be collectively purchased and placed on the auction table. Please remember that any items, or cash received in the name of this silent auction, are fully tax deductible.

With your generous donation, your company’s logo will be posted on the TTA website, TXConnect Membership Summit on-site signage, and social media outlets. New this year, the Cash Cow award! A cash cow trophy will be awarded to the company whose donated item brings in the most funds.

If you are interested in donating, we’re collecting information via this form:

Please complete the form by July 20, 2020.
