Auctions as fundraisers
School auctions are a source of much needed funding and financial support for schools. Tuition traditionally does not cover all of the expenses of running a school, so the auction and the annual fund help cover the gap. Auctions are critical for funding essential items and they help maintain the school's ability to provide financial aid for many families. More than 40 percent of Seabury's student body receives some form of financial assistance, so auction proceeds are vitally important to Seabury's ability to reach an even greater number of families.
Our school auction also gives us an opportunity - faculty and staff, parents, friends, family and supporters - to come together for an evening of fun and community. It allows the Seabury community, writ large, to celebrate our children, their amazing ability to learn and our luck at having found a home for their unique ways of learning and being.
