An Auction Fundraiser Reimagined

Would you believe that today’s children spend up to 44 hours per week in front of a screen and less than 10 minutes outdoors? Yikes! Dedicated to experiential education, sustainable agriculture, environmental stewardship and a whole lot of fun, Stratford is committed to reversing this trend and welcomes nearly 16,000 children, volunteers, and our community to spark joy and connection with nature, their food and each other. 

The demand for Stratford has never been greater, and we’re excited to fuel our mission with our signature fundraising event and celebration – Enchanted Evening. This evening of generosity brings together individuals and organizations from all over central Ohio for a lively evening celebrating the impact of our mission while fueling the work of the future.

Stratford recognizes the urgent need for children, adults, and families to spend time together fostering relationships and making memories. We want to encourage our community to increase their collection of memories through an experience and consumable based live and silent auction.  Donating an auction package means making memories while fueling our mission!  Would you be willing to donate a special experience to help our cause? Please complete the commitment form below and return it to us by July 25th.
