Fundraising occurs throughout the year with the bulk of FAUSA’s charitable funds being raised at FAUSA's Annual Meeting and Getaway through our silent and live auctions, as well as our always popular quilt drawing.
The 2022 silent and live auctions took place during our hybrid in-person and virtual Annual Meeting/Getaway in Santa Fe, New Mexico. FAUSA members raised more than $23,000for FAUSA’s charitable projects, FAUSA’s largest total ever.
Our 2022 silent & live auction featured many items including mosaic micro-pendants, scarves, handbags, and even a Native American-designed dog collar. We also offered virtual cooking workshops and not to be missed were some delicious foodie specialties including artisan honey, various delectable, and a magnum of Cabernet Sauvignon.
You can start thinking now about donating your special items. Closer to the time of the Getaway in Nashville, there will be more information about donation possibilities on the website’s Getaway section in FUNdraising.

Your online shopping benefits FAUSA's philanthropy through iGive.com
You can shop online and, at the same time and AT NO ADDITIONAL cost, make a donation to FAUSA's philanthropic fund. FAUSA has registered as a “cause” through iGive, which currently has more than 2200 top retailers and services in its online “mall.” FAUSA invites its members to register with iGive and indicate “FAUSA” as their cause. It’s easy, and it’s free.
- Go to: http://www.iGive.com/FAUSA.
- Fill out the simple registration form and submit (remember to write down your password!)
- Once you have registered, enter the iGive.com website, log on and search the site for your favorite retailer or service. From there, click on the retailer’s link. After that, all you need to do is “shop 'til you drop”. A percentage of the purchase (before shipping and taxes) will be donated to FAUSA.
- Please note: If you enter the website using the basic iGive.com website address (and not from the link above), you will have to enter “FAUSA” as your cause.
