SAF National Convention – Raffle

My name is Katelynn Martinez, I’m a member of the Society of American Foresters (SAF) Colorado/Wyoming Chapter and this year I’ve volunteered to run the Silent Auction and Raffle at SAF National Convention 2024 that will be held in Loveland, CO, September 17-20. I’m reaching out to encourage your members to donate items for this year’s auction & raffle!

What you are Supporting

All funds raised from the Silent Auction and Raffle are split equally between SAF Foresters Fund and Kurt Gottschalk Science Fund. These two funds support SAF’s granting programs, which offer funds to projects conducted by SAF local units and to projects that support the transfer of knowledge through research, enhanced technological application, and diverse continuing education activities. Your donation to the Silent Auction and Raffle directly supports SAF’s members, diverse programs, and mission! 

How You Can Help

You can support SAF’s granting programs by donating an item to the 2024 Silent Auction and Raffle. Items can range from gift certificates, artwork, books, apparel, tools, food baskets, to handmade items, trips, and more. Please fill out the attached form with your donated item, including item description and your contact details. 

Many of our participants will be flying to the event, so items that can be packed or carried easily onto a plane are encouraged.

To entice a little friendly competition, we will be awarding a prize to the chapter that donates the item with the highest ending bid, as well as the chapter that donates the item with the greatest number of bids! In addition to a prize, these chapters will be recognized at the National Convention closing ceremonies!

Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions!  I can be reached at or (303) 250-4126, Monday through Friday.

Thank you for your support of the Foresters Fund and Kurt Gottschalk Science Fund and SAF!
