Please consider donating an item to the Children's Fund of School Psychology Silent Auction at the 2016 MSPA Midwinter Conference!
Any item donations would, of course, be welcomed. Last year, items included books, assessment and intervention materials, region or university themed baskets, discounted training opportunities, homemade crafts, signed baseballs and much, much more. Below is a list of those who contributed items to the 2015 Auction. Thanks to their generosity, through the winning bids at the auction, MSPA was able to donate over $850 to the Children’s Fund last year! Please consider joining them this year in helping the Children’s Fund support the needs of children and families in Minnesota and across the country.

Children's Fund of School Psychology, Inc. is a nationwide organization and a recognized 501(c)(3) charitable organization that offers personal grants and advocates mental health care for children. For more than 35 years, we have made it our goal to provide various types of grants to schools and school personnel to help children with their basic needs.
The Children's Fund is a tax-exempt, non-profit, independent charity. The Fund accepts and disburses monies for charitable purposes that are consistent with the Fund's priorities. These include:
- Advocating for the essential rights and welfare of all children and youth;
- Embracing individual and group differences in children and youth based upon gender and diverse ethnic, cultural, language, and experiential backgrounds;
- Promoting learning environments which facilitate optimal development; and
- Producing effective interventions that address both learning and social/emotional issues that impede a child's success and happiness.
