The annual Natural Stone Institute Auction is going virtual for 2020. This Members Only benefit auction is a great way to showcase your products and raise money for the Natural Stone Foundation. The Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit charity governed by a board of trustees.  Its mission is to create, fund and/or support programs that directly educate the architecture and design community, consumers, and industry professionals about the features and benefits of natural stone. Support this mission by donating an item to be auctioned.  Foundation contributions are tax deductible as allowed by law and exclusively support the mission and programs of the Foundation.
