Change Happens Together Instagram Auctions

Seneca holds multiple Change Happens Together Instagram auctions throughout the year. The auction is held entirely on our @change_happens_together Instagram account and features items from local businesses and artists. The goal is to raise funds for our services while celebrating local makers and creators. 100% of proceeds support Seneca's Central Coast programs.

Auction items are donated by local businesses and artists, and during the auction, each item is posted to our Change Happens Together Instagram account silent auction-style. To bid on an item, simply comment your bid amount in the comment section of the item post. The highest bidder at the end of the auction wins! Paying for the item(s) you win is fast, simple, and secure through our online donation page.

Want to donate or sponsor an auction item?
Partnering with us by donating/sponsoring an auction item exposes your brand to a new local audience and helps support our foster care services. We accept all kinds of items, from small goods or services to trips and experiences! To donate/sponsor an item, email [email protected]. And if you know of a brand/business that might be interested in donating or sponsoring an item, please pass this info along to them!

To see past auctions and get an idea of how it works and what's involved, visit the Instagram page where the auction takes place.
