Fundraising is an important step for most schools to subsidize budgets or fund special projects. Want to adopt flexible seating in the classroom? Let's set up a fundraiser. Want to fund a field trip? Fundraising to the rescue. Need a new specialty learning tool? Launch a fundraiser!
The problem is, fundraising can be difficult, time-consuming and slow. You do it because your school and the students benefit from the extra funds, but you probably often wonder if there's a better way. Fortunately, you do have unique fundraising options at your disposal. If you partner with Lifetouch for a Fall Picture Day, there is an exclusive fundraising opportunity to raise money all year long using a Shutterfly Storefront.
Creating a custom online Storefront for free
You don't have to be tech-savvy to create a custom URL that allows friends and family of students to order high-quality Shutterfly products that are customized with favorite images. In just a few simple steps, you'll create your Storefront, which can be directly accessed to order cool things like stationery, gifts, decor and more. Every item is special because it is personalized, which means it's great for any type of holiday gifts or celebrations, or when families simply want to order something one of a kind for themselves.
There are no upfront costs, fees or product markups when you create a unique Shutterfly Storefront. It’s free to launch and run your Storefront and the URL can easily be shared with parents, teachers, family, colleagues and friends to expand the fundraising potential. Add the URL to newsletters and promote on social media to remind people to order amazing items and help their school reach their fundraising goals.
Earn 8% of sales all year long
When anyone makes purchases on Shutterfly through your custom URL, 8% of the total goes directly to your school. There is no time limit and the URL can be active all year long. Does Grandma need a special gift for your daughter's upcoming recital? She's covered. A personalized tote for a soon-to-be graduate? There's something for that, too. No matter the occasion or the age of the recipient, there's a great gift for everyone.
Money raised adds up fast. Just 50 orders averaging $60 will bring in $240 to your school. If you get 200 orders at the same average cost per order, you will bring in $960 for the school. That's likely much more than a bake sale with certainly much less work, plus unlike limited-time fundraising events, your custom URL for your Storefront stays active as long as you'd like.
