Join us as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the founding of JACCC and reflect on returning full circle, approaching the future with SHOSHIN (a “beginner’s mind”), and highlighting our distinguished honorees, the arts, culture, and community.
Our online silent auction and gala program is free and open to the public - however, we ask that you register (for free) to gain access to the online silent auction. Please note that for security reasons, GiveSmart requires separate registrations for each event. However, if you previously registered for our Virtual AutumnFest and/or forgot your login credentials, click here for instructions on how to sign in.
Please note that you must be 18 years and older to bid on our online auction packages, and 21 years and older to bid on any alcohol-related auction package.
The gala program will be available on Saturday, June 12 at 6 PM (PDT) through GiveSmart and JACCC Website and will remain available on all platforms after the event is over.
Anyone is able to make donations to JACCC at any time before or after June 12th by visiting our GiveSmart website.
If you’d like to participate in our Online Silent Auction, you can place bids anytime before it closes on Sunday, June 13 at 11:59 PM (PDT). If you have a maximum spending limit for an auction package, you can set an auto-bid that will automatically increase your bids against competitors until it reaches your maximum limit. If your maximum limit is outbid, you will be notified. For more information, check the FAQ below.
You will also be able to view the live-stream video after June 12 on Givesmart and our JACCC.org website.
To keep in compliance with COVID-19 regulations, we are only accepting checks by mail in addition to online credit card payments. Please make the check payable to ‘JACCC’ and in the memo, write in the sponsorship level or indicate it’s a donation. To make sure we receive the payment on-time, please send all checks before Monday, May 31, 2021.
If you are a sponsor or donating to JACCC, your contribution is tax-deductible (minus goods and services received). Auction packages won above the fair market value are tax-deductible in the amount of the difference. For federal income tax purposes you may be able to deduct the portion of your purchase price that exceeds the item’s fair market value (FMV), if you paid the excess with the intent to make a charitable contribution. Please note that transaction fees and taxes associated with your contribution are not tax-deductible. For any additional questions, please consult your tax advisor.
Acknowledgment letters and tax receipts will be mailed the week following the virtual program. You will also receive a receipt of your purchases automatically after payment on GiveSmart. To ensure your letter and receipt are correct, please make sure to double check the spelling of your name, address, and email.
There is no deadline for registration. We recommend that sponsors purchase their sponsorships by early April to ensure that we can fulfill your recognition benefits in the gala program and marketing materials.
Yes. Upon checking out, you have the option to opt into the 3.5% transaction fee for GiveSmart's credit card processing. By paying the transaction fee, you ensure more money goes to JACCC’s mission.

Yes, all bids are anonymous in GiveSmart. Our online auction's system is set to have all bidders as anonymous — if you see your name, it’s most likely that you’re seeing it because you are logged into your GiveSmart account. If you check the auction page in 'incognito' mode you'll see that you are definitely anonymous.
Please ask for assistance from our team by emailing email@example.com before Saturday, June 12 at 7 PM. For additional details, please click on this link for auction rules and regulations.
We encourage you to use at least two devices to stream the live gala program and bid in our online auction simultaneously, and recommend that you enable text notifications through GiveSmart for status updates regarding your bids. We'll also send out a link to all guests who want to simultaneously bid while watching the program.
