Frequently Asked Questions about USL's Annual Fund

Annual Auction

On Saturday February 20, 2016, University School will hold its Annual Auction at the Hobcaw Yacht Club. All members and supporters of the USL community are invited to join us for this event.

In the meantime, we need your support!  The fundraising efforts and auction proceeds play a critical role in sustaining USL’s mission and this is a community effort.  The USL student body has grown quickly, creating many needs to support our growth.  This year the auction proceeds will support our LOTC program, and we all understand the importance of this experience for our children, because the world is our classroom!

We will have fabulous food, great music and wonderful auction items! We are hoping that this will be our biggest auction ever!  We are asking that all USL families support USL in its fundraising efforts by soliciting or donating items for the auction.

Auction Items

We understand how busy daily life can be, but we are requesting that all USL families ask local businesses to donate goods, services or gift certificates. USL, through its many forms of service to the community, is an uplifting and positive presence.  Most businesses don't hesitate to make a contribution, in support of USL and its mission. Here is a flyer explaining sponsorship opportunities and guidance on soliciting items to support the Auction. 

The proceeds of the Annual Auction will support University School's mission. The Annual Auction depends on parents and friends to donate items. If you have an item you would like to donate, please download and complete a donation form. Donations are tax-deductible as permitted by law.
