Nueva Annual Benefit Auction

The annual benefit auction is the only fundraising event of the year. The entire community comes together to raise over $1m each year for student financial assistance and professional development for faculty and staff.

This year’s theme, California Dreamin’ celebrates all that makes California the “Golden State”; our entrepreneurial spirit, cutting edge innovation, and all that is quintessentially California.

The auction includes an online auction, cocktail party reception and silent auction, and the big event: dinner, live auction and dancing to Yacht Rock band, The Windbreakers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should you support the auction?

Today at Nueva, 20% of students receive financial assistance. This means we are able to accept children who are the best fit for Nueva but may not have the resources to attend. The resulting socioeconomic diversity broadens every student's experience; every student benefits from your generosity.

Auction Inspires Community-Building and Donations of All Shapes and Sizes

Perhaps when you hear the word “auction" you think of a hushed room full of serious people holding paddles, bidding on mysterious artifacts. In true Nueva fashion, it should come to no surprise that the Annual Benefit Auction has transformed that model into an fun, inclusive, and community-driven fundraising event.

What makes a community? How is our school made better by every student, parent, and staff member here? In this video, originally shared at our annual auction, we reflect on the fabric of our community and the ways we all make each other stronger!
