Make a Donation to the CxO Auction


Can’t make it to the auction, but still want to contribute? Fear not! Donations are accepted here.

ChaTech’s mission is to connect the Chattanooga technology community and help drive economic growth across the region. To fulfill this purpose, ChaTech invests in the people who make it happen. In order to make these investments, we host our biggest fundraiser of the year, the CxO Auction.

What is the CxO Auction? The CxO Auction is a unique party to raise funds for ChaTech programs.  The event combines a fun dinner with the opportunity for technology service providers, hardware/software vendors and consultants to bid for a 2-hour meeting with each of 10 technology leaders from the area.

The tech leaders include chief information officers, chief information security officers and other C-Suite decision-makers—hence the generic title of CxO.  Representing some of the area’s largest companies and employers, the CxO’s are key consumers of tech-related products and services.

The highlight of the night is the fun—sometimes silly—and fast-paced auction of the 10 CxOs.  The CxO who raises the most money wins the title of The Big Cheese, complete with a 3-D printed cheese trophy.  We end the night with the opportunity for individuals and companies to make contributions to the ChaTech Scholarship Fund for the 2019 ChaTech Scholars.

We’ve set up this page for the organizations and individuals who want to make a donation at the auction, but cannot attend.
