Mark your calendars: The Blue and Gold Benefit and Auction will take place online March 17 to 31, 2022, to support the APU Foundation. This year, the auction benefits the Educating Our Future fund honoring the legacy of Leah J. Peterson, a lifelong educator and an educational activist who served on the Board of Trustees at APU for more than 30 years.
So what is the APU Foundation?
In short, the APU Foundation (APUF), founded in 1994, operates exclusively for charitable and education purposes for the benefit of the university. APUF aids the funding of education programs that enhance the quality and diversity of education available at APU. In the most recent fiscal year, APUF contributed $721,000 to the university through its 32 donor-funded endowments, providing scholarships, endowed chairs and professorships for faculty, and capital for university facilities and departments.
The Blue & Gold Benefit and Auction is a great way to show your support for APUF and the future students of the university, the future leaders of Alaska. Items for bid include APU experience trips, popular restaurant packages, stay-cations, and more, all in support of the Alaska Pacific University Foundation. Bidding opens March 17 through the virtual event March 31, 6:30-7:30pm.
The virtual event features door prizes, music, raffle, and more. This year, we are excited to announce virtual table sponsorships for businesses, organizations, and family and friends who want to get in on the bidding together. Registration opens on March 1 – event registration and information available at www.alaskapacific.edu/APUFbenefit Bidding is open to anyone who registers. So bid high and bid often!
