We Need Silent Auction Donations!

In honor of WTS Minnesota’s 30th Anniversary and the launch of Transportation YOU, please consider making a special contribution to our organization this year.  We are asking you to consider making a cash donation or donating an item or experience for the silent auction to be held at our 30th Anniversary Gala.

All proceeds collected from the silent auction will support WTS Minnesota’s educational programs, including Transportation YOU. We would be honored if you would support our educational programs and the launch of Transportation YOU by making a cash donation or donating an item or special skill to the silent auction. Ideas for auction items are:

  • Weekend vacation properties

Generous donors receive a tax-deductible benefit for every dollar contributed to the WTS Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization. Donors will receive recognition for their gift at the gala celebration event.
