HIPOW | Happiness is Paying Our Way


HIPOW Auction 

October 11 & 12



Monroe Foundation, Inc. is a 501 c(3) non-profit organization. The sole purpose of the Foundation is to support and advance the goals and programs of the Catholic Schools of Fairbanks.

For almost 45 years, Monroe Foundation, Inc. has hosted the annual HIPOW Auction. HIPOW stands for Happiness is Paying Our Way.  HIPOW  brings together students, parents, alumni, teachers, volunteers, and many other members of the community for two fun-filled nights of silent and oral auctions. The event supports the Catholic Schools of Fairbanks.

The HIPOW auction is possible due to donations from generous individuals and businesses in the Fairbanks community and all over the country. The business community has been especially generous to HIPOW. More than 65% of the auction donations come from area businesses through cash gifts, sponsorships and catalog ads.

Over 2000 items will be available at the auction, this is everything from paintings, vehicles, tools, toys, jewlery, appliances, gift certificates, travel, unique experiences, vacaction packages, games, household furnishings, antiques, Alaskan art, and so much more. 

Thank you to our sponsors who have been with us year after year and make this event possible.  Please visit their businesses and thank them with your patronage.
