About Our Auction

Welcome to the Vamos Outdoors Project Fundraising Auction. Vamos Outdoors Project (VOP) builds community by creating access to environmental education. This fundraiser provides funds for us to send Latinx and English Language Learner youth on summer backpacking trips in the Cascades. Proceeds from this auction also support our mountain biking program in partnership with WMBC, our swimming program with the YMCA, and our climbing program at VITAL climbing gym. The Latinx population is underserved in outdoor programming, especially the migrant farmworker community, and this fundraiser goes a long way to provide empowering experiences for youth in Whatcom County.

For this auction, we are thrilled to offer dozens of gift certificates, gear, artwork, activities, services, toys, food and more, supplied almost exclusively by local business owners! Below is a little information about the auction itself:
- Items are listed with a current/starting bid price, as well as a Buy-It-Now price. The value of the item is also listed.
- A few items have multiple duplicate items available. In those cases, there is simply a Buy-It-Now price.
- If an item gets a new high bid in the final moments of the auction, bidding time will be extended for 3 minutes, repeating for each additional bid. Max 30 minute extension.

If you aren't interested in bidding on an item, there is a link for direct donations, or you can sponsor students through scholarships. Look for "Vamos Scholarships" in the categories.

Thanks to all of our donors for supporting Vamos Outdoors Project!
