Auction for McGilvra Elementary


McGilvra Elementary turns 100 years old in 2014 and will be holding its biennial auction on Saturday, March 22nd at Showbox SODO. This is the largest fundraising event of the year, and the school hopes to have many alumni attend the auction with their current families.

McGilvra Elementary School

The money raised from the auction pays for programs that are not funded by Seattle Public Schools. These include the art teacher and supplies, reading and math teachers as well as their curriculum, a school counselor, teacher and library grants, and classroom tutors. With many classes having a 29:1 student teacher ratio, these programs are more essential than ever for our children. McGilvra would love your help. If you have an item or service you would like to donate, please do. Another way you can support McGilvra is to place an ad for your business in the auction catalog — over 300 people will be seeing it. You can also be an auction sponsor. All information is available on the auction website at You can download procurement, ad, and sponsor forms from the website. If you have further questions, please email [email protected].
