Gala 2019: Small is All Auction is LIVE!

This is your chance to place early bids for Brooklyn Free School's Annual Gala Auction!

All of our auction items have been donated by local businesses, partners, sponsors, and our extended Brooklyn Free School community. Their generosity makes events like the Gala and our yearly fundraisers possible.

EARLY BIDDING: When you find an item you'd like, you can simply bid on the item OR choose the 'buy now' option to secure that item right away.

FINAL BIDDING: Come to the Gala to place your final bids, or enter a 'proxy bid' and we will bid on your behalf at the event.

Your bids make an immediate impact on this amazing learning community located in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. All money raised from the auction goes into our Annual Fund. The BFS Annual Fund subsidizes tuition for 90% of attending students and makes it possible for Brooklyn Free School to continue serving a diverse student body and maintain a strong teaching staff.
