Arrangements For Donations

Auction Items may be brought to the Conference Marketplace when you arrive at the conference. You will need to check your item in with the Marketplace Coordinator.

If you are not attending the conference, you may still donate an item for the auction. Please contact the NSN office for more information on how to donate your item(s).

Knowing in advance the item(s) you will be donating will help us know how many tables to rent from the hotel. Thank you in advance for considering contributing a donation to the National Storytelling Network’s Conference Silent Auction. The funds from the silent auction will help further NSN’s mission and goals.
