I love the auction because of the wonderful fun it is to associate with people at the event and the revenue it generates for the school. Through the years it has been entertaining to occasionally surprise someone with a gift…maybe an odd gift like the Billy Goat purchased at the auction in the 1960’s and delivered to Clarence Birch…which was quite a surprise to him!

Cecil Binford

Quaker Village Auction Founder

Cecil Binford moved to Greenleaf from Haviland, Kansas in 1951. During his years at Friends Bible College, Cecil was involved in their annual benefit auction and witnessed the amazing success the college had with this event. So when he arrived in Greenleaf he brought his vision to the Academy and the Quaker Village Auction was born that year! Cecil was tremendously involved as a board member and supporter as well as working countless hours on behalf of GFA . He still makes his famous caramel corn each year for sale during the live auction. Cecil and Lois’s four children, many grandchildren, and great grandchildren are past and current students at GFA.

2017 WAS ANOTHER RECORD-BREAKING YEAR AT THE AUCTION!!!

What an amazing weekend we had at our 66th Annual Quaker Village Auction! Like always, our GFA community SHOWED UP and showed us SO MUCH LOVE! This year we raised $216,600!! Isn’t that just spectacular?!?! We beat our all-time record by a glorious $25,600! God is so good and continues to show Himself SO FAITHFUL to our school!

Every year, our annual Quaker Village Auction bridges the gap between our tuition revenue and our yearly, operating expenses. The success of this event makes it possible for GFA to keep tuition costs lower than any other accredited, Christian school in the Valley, and provides for annual scholarships and facilities expenses.

FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS, THANK YOU!

We have a $20,000/year Transportation fund we are building (there are Boise and Meridian kids who would come if they had Bus transportation) and a $10,000 Sound System update we need to complete in our Gymnasium (large events and fine arts presentations can’t be heard because of the current system and acoustics). If God moves you to champion either of these causes, please contact our Marketing Director, Amanda Taylor, for more information.
