2020 Auction

2020 Haring Center Fundraiser & Auction

Each year, auction fundraising efforts support the baseline budget for the next fiscal year. This determines how many classrooms we can operate in September and is vital to providing services to our families. The deficit resulting from the COVID-19 crisis and the inability to hold our 2020 auction in-person puts the 2020-21 academic year in jeopardy.  In order to avoid this and continue serving the same number of children and families through our EEU programs, the Haring Center needs to close a total gap of $900,000

Our fundraising efforts are essential, now more than ever, for the Haring Center, our staff and the families we serve. While we hoped to celebrate with you in person on May 16, we are adapting to the current moment. The 2020 Haring Center Fundraiser and Auction will now be online –  join us May 11-16, 2020 and help us close the gap!

During that time, we’ll hear from our Haring Center Director Ilene Schwartz, EEU Principal Chris Matsumoto, and our wonderful community members about the incredible work happening at the Haring Center in the face of this international crisis. You can explore the virtual website and donate now! Bidding opens May 11.
