Silent Auction

Each year, the silent auction is a very popular part of the annual conference, and serves as a vital fundraiser for VAM programming. It also serves to showcase the unique items from Virginia's many museums, historical societies, gardens, art museums and galleries, zoos, and nature centers.  


When thinking about possible donations, remember these tips:

  • Donations made to the VAM auction should carry a value of at least $25 so we can optimize our space in the exhibit hall and raise vital funds for VAM programming.
  • VAM reserves the right to group donations together to make the most appealing options available to our bidders.

If you have questions about VAM's 2018 silent auction, contact, or call the VAM office at 804.358.3170. Use the form below to let us know about your donation prior to conference time. Due to staff and volunteer constraints, we'll be unable to accept new donations onsite (that is, donations that come in without a donation form filled out ahead of time). Thanks for your understanding. 



The following title and description will be used on our silent auction sheet. Please give any restrictions or blackout dates for the donation. NEW! Minimum value: $25.

Please include a descriptive brochure, menu, or other promotional materials to be displayed with the item. We will try to display as much promotional material as possible with your donation. NEW! VAM reserves the right to combine items when appropriate for auction display and bidding.

Questions? Contact 804.358.3170 or email 

Remember, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, all donations to VAM are tax deductible.  Thank you for participating in the VAM Silent Auction. Your contribution will help raise funds that keep VAM programming and support affordable for museum professionals.

Thank You Conference 2018 Sponsors
