Silent Auction

The Howard Bowers Fund Silent Auction at CCMA is our biggest fundraiser of the year.  Funds raised at the auction are used to provide scholarships to professional conferences and for training and education grants for food co-ops.

We invite you to support the fund by making a donation to the auction today.

Donated items range from co-op t-shirts, reusable shopping bags, gift baskets and “swag” items, to complimentary registrations to the top co-op conferences.  Consider a donation that showcases your co-op, and we’ll be proud to advertise your contribution on the CCMA and CDF websites and our social media.

Contributing to the Bowers auction at CCMA is a great way to advertise your cooperative while supporting the 5th and 6th cooperative principles.

Donated items can be sent to:

Carolina Cooperative Enterprise
C/0 Teia Evans – CCMA Silent Auction
68 TW Alexander Drive
Durham, NC 27709

Please use the link below to tell us about your planned donation and how you’d like to arrange delivery.  (Be sure to include a picture so we can promote your contribution and your co-op!)
