Time and Talent Auction

"In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well." Romans 12:6

This summer the women of Second are focusing our fundraising efforts on time and talent, rather than treasures. The Time and Talent Auction offers a new way to get engaged with your faith community AND raise funds for grants to local and international nonprofit organizations. Simply submit your “donation” online, then join the fun from August 22 through 29 by bidding on services offered by our members.

You might ask what a donation might be?  Well, the donations will be based on what you have to offer as a special talent or time you would like to give someone who is in need. We have a few great donations already, including Rev. Chris Henry offering the opportunity to suggest a text or topic for a Sunday sermon!

Here are some other suggestions:

  • Home-cooked meals for a busy family
  • Landscaping and gardening help
  • Handyman services
  • Dinner Party for 8
  • Live music for an outdoor gathering
  • Raking leaves in the Fall
  • Singing lessons – introduction or 3 sessions 
  • Technical computer assistance
  • Organize closet, basement, pantry, or workshop
  • Photography – family portrait
  • Petsitting or dog walking
  • Tutoring services

The possibilities are endless! What can you give this summer? The deadline for Time and Talent Auction submissions is August 15.

All proceeds from the auction go to fund mission grants to organizations such as Northside Food Pantry, SAWs Ramps, Umoja Partnership, and more! The Women@Second give more than $80,000 each year to support our mission partners.

Would you like to donate directly to fund Women@Second mission grants? Click here to go to Second's e-giving page and select "Women@Second Auction" in the drop-down menu.

We invite you to take your treasures to a worthy collection site (such as Mustard Seed, Thrifty Threads, Wheeler Mission, or Goodwill). We are not accepting donations of clothing or household goods at this time.
