Support the Albany Fund for Education and the students of the City School District of Albany – and find unique and wonderful gifts for friends, family, or even yourself – at the annual “Bids for Kids’ Sake” auction! Many thanks to the wonderful businesses and community members who supported the 2022 auction and helped AFE raise more than $10,000 to support music, grants, environmental education, and hunger prevention programming in our schools! Please look for their names on the list below and support them. And when you do, thank them for supporting the Albany Fund for Education! 

Missed the auction? You can still purchase AFE merchandise and Fund-A-Need items!

When you “buy” a Fund-A-Need item, you will receive a card describing the item purchased that you can give as a gift. Fund-A-Need items purchased by December 24 will be available for pick-up in Albany.  “They look lovely for gift giving!” 

Thank You 2022 Auction Donors!
