Auction Items

The complete 2015 Benefit Auction catalog will be online on April 20. Feel free to browse last year’s catalog (see below) for ideas and inspiration.



Tax Deductibility

Items donated to the Benefit Auction are tax-deductible according to the tax basis (not the fair market value). In general, if the total charitable deduction claimed for non-cash property exceeds $500, the taxpayer must file IRS Form 8283. For property valued at more than $5,000, a written appraisal may be required.

For items and services purchased at the Benefit Auction, any amount paid that exceeds the fair market value may be tax-deductible. Reservation fees and raffle tickets are not tax-deductible. Please consult your tax advisor for more details or advice.
