BE A FUNDRAISER
The individuals leading our fundraising efforts for Photo Start have accomplished some truly remarkable feats and continue to brainstorm fresh ideas regularly.
What action will you take?
By clicking on “I want to fundraise for this” you can create your peer-to-peer fundraising page and share your page with your family and friends and ask them to support your efforts. Your support will work to empower under-resourced young people to imagine, create, and choose their future.
The possibilities for fundraising are endless! Looking for some inspiration? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org and let’s create magic together.

Become a corporate Sponsor
By collaborating with Photo Start, you can inspire today’s youth to grow up to be tomorrow’s leaders and make the world a better place for everyone. By demonstrating your dedication to our cause, you not only enhance your brand’s recognition and public image, but you also motivate your staff. Regardless of the size of your business, we collaborate with you to develop a strategic partnership plan that represents your corporate objectives and has a greater impact on more areas.
Here are some ways your business can participate and make a difference:
- EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT: Encourage your employees to get involved and make a difference by connecting them with Photo Start through fundraising, workplace giving, matching gifts, learning experiences, and service days. This will not only foster a sense of community but also multiply the impact of employee giving.
- CAUSE-RELATED MARKETING: By utilizing cause-related marketing, you can raise brand recognition, boost sales, and demonstrate your commitment to social responsibility. You can accomplish this by setting initiatives like arranging fundraising events for clients, promoting donations with purchase programs, and donating a percentage of revenues to Photo Start.
- EVENT SPONSORSHIP: By supporting an event, you may connect with fresh, interested audiences and foster a sense of community for our cause.
- IN-KIND SPONSORSHIP: Donate goods or services, such as cameras, cell phones, and tablets, that we need to operate our programs.
- PHILANTHROPIC GRANTS: Contribute philanthropic grants to Photo Start to help with general operational costs or special projects.
- FIELD PROGRAM SPONSORSHIP: Join forces with our team to support one of our innovative programs and have a significant influence on the ground.
- STRATEGIC SPONSORSHIP: A strategic partnership combines long-term corporate generosity with multi-year collaborative program development to have a lasting impact. Such collaborations can entail supporting trial projects and developing new initiatives.
- EMPLOYER MATCHING: Match donations that your employees make to Photo Start.
Our global sponsors help us reach more people, have a bigger impact in the areas we work in, and give more communities access to initiatives that can change their lives.
If you are interested in a partnership opportunity, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
A photography class is just not possible without cameras, lenses and related gear. 100% of our tools are donated – and not limited to cameras and accessories; we also need iPads, smartphones, laptops, and audio/video tech. Your “outdated” gear can sustain a Photo Start program for many years!
Leave a Legacy
By leaving a bequest, you leave a living legacy. A bequest allows you to continue to make a valuable contribution for decades to come.
Should you wish to leave a legacy, please contact email@example.com for further information.
Facilitate a program
Our goal is to offer sustainable solutions to local partners, empowering student participants to share their stories and make a positive impact in their communities. Our adaptable programs give partners the freedom to choose how they want to implement the program, whether in person, online, or a combination of both.
We also provide a licensed alternative, allowing partners to independently utilize our Photo Start curriculum. We understand that each organization has unique needs, so we offer a range of spending options, including a free programming option, to accommodate those requirements. If you’re interested in bringing a Photo Start program to your organization, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
