Greetings from the 622 Education Foundation!

The 622 Education Foundation is planning our annual silent auction.  As you may know, the Foundation generates and distributes resources to our district schools to create, enrich, and expand programs that enhance the quality of education in our community. District 622 includes Maplewood, North Saint Paul, Oakdale, Landfall and parts of Woodbury and Lake Elmo (  

We impact our community via our Angel Fund, which supports students and families most in need, and our new Award of Excellence that recognizes students beyond their GPA and class ranking for how they enrich their communities.  By December 2021, within a month after last year’s auction, we provided over 100 $50 gift cards for our district social workers to help families in need, 115 pairs of winter boots, 70 winter hats and snow pants to share with our 622 families. In May 2022, we hosted 2 celebration events for outstanding graduating seniors across the district for our new Award of Excellence program.  

We would like to invite you to participate in our silent auction event by donating an item, gift basket, or  gift certificate from your business.  The online auction will be held November 11th to November 15th. In exchange for your donation, we would be delighted to promote your organization as an event participant on our Foundation’s website, on the silent auction site (, and on the Foundation’s social media pages.

In last year’s second annual virtual auction, we:

Raised $17,401.20, exceeding our goal of $12,622.  This year we hope to raise $20,622! 
Garnered over 25,000 unique page views of donated items.  This year’s goal is 30,000!
Presented over 200 items from local businesses, restaurants, and artisans to promote to our local community. This year we hope to grow that number--Join us!  
Auction donations/baskets can be dropped off at the 622 District Center, picked up from your location, or mailed to the address below. Donation deadline is November 8th by 4pm. 

Thank you for considering this request!
