Annual Benefit Auction

Save the date for this year's benefit auction!

May 1, 2021

Stay tuned for more information and the theme announcement.


Each spring, our community comes together to have fun and show its support for Nueva! Enlivened by a fun theme (past themes include California Streamin’, The 80’s, and Yellow Brick Road), the auction has costumes, food and wine, one-of-a-kind items and experiences for purchase, and opportunities to make tax-deductible Fund-A-Need contributions.

The annual benefit auction raises crucial funds for financial assistance for students. We are proud of our efforts to make a Nueva education accessible to all, enabling us to provide financial assistance to approximately 20 percent of our student body.

Hear more about the transformational impact of financial assistance from parent of alumni Brenda Beck.

Even a global pandemic couldn't keep the Nueva community from a great party! When COVID-19 forced us to cancel the April 4 benefit auction just a few weeks before it was scheduled to take place, our auction committee rallied and hosted Nueva’s first-ever virtual benefit auction, rechristened California Streamin’.

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!
