Check back soon for more information!
Mount’s mission continues with the 2021 Auction!
As we prepare for Mount’s biggest fundraiser of the year, we reflect on our greatest asset: the Mount community. This community has weathered many storms over the years from a Great Depression to 9/11 and now a Global Pandemic. Mount Family: Stronger Together is the theme of this year’s virtual auction. We aim to highlight the many gifts we have
as individuals and the connections we have to each other and to the school we love.
The Mount Auction will begin on Saturday, May 8 and conclude on Monday, May 17, 2021. You will once again have the opportunity to support the academy, its students, and its legacy from the comfort and safety of your own home.
How You Can Help
Traditional ways to support the auction, such as sponsorship, advertisement, vacation home stays, item donation, and of course bidding during the event have not changed. This year we would also like to encourage our Mount Family to consider different ways to contribute.
Donate a Talent or Gift
Consider the mission of our academy and donate a talent or gift you might be able to share. Preparing taxes, estate planning, career advice, hosting an on-line wine tasting, creating a custom woodworking piece or knitted blanket, offering music lessons or landscaping services are merely some ideas of ways your talents can serve others and support the auction and our school. Your time and talents are tremendous assets and truly valued!
Be Together in Spirit
A new sponsorship provides an opportunity to be together in spirit. For a donation of $100.00+, you can submit a photo or Zoom video recording with your favorite Mounties to be featured during the week of the auction. Alumni are encouraged to reflect on the different groups they were part of during their time at Mount. Were you part of a play cast, a team, or a TC with whom you could reconnect? Chip in and submit a photo or video! Current students, families, teams, and music ensembles can submit a picture or video as well. We are hopeful you will use the auction as a chance to connect with the people who make Mount special while supporting our school.
Advertise your business and services to the greater Mount Community! This is a great way to get the word out about what you do while also connecting with a large group of people who want to support you and Mount at the same time. Ads will be included in the Mount Magazine (electronic), the Mount Auction Website, and Auction Software. Please submit all ad artwork by March 31 to Jennifer Sheytanian at email@example.com
Our success greatly depends on the generosity of our corporate sponsors and donors.
The Mount Saint Charles Academy Auction Fundraiser is an indispensable opportunity to have a direct impact on students and the experiences and opportunities that a Mount education offers. Funds from the auction support our students and school improvements.
In addition to acknowledge of your sponsorship on the website and on the auction site, Mount has a strong social media presence and following and your support will be appreciated, acknowledged and shared with our Mount family. Our electronic newsletters, alumni and family direct email campaigns reach over 600 current families in Northern Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts and over 10,000 alumni from across the country and globe.
