National Principal’s Conference 2017: PixFunder Is Helping Schools Fund Raise With Something Parents Really Want
Parents, grandparents, guardians, Aunt Lucy and everyone at the office is pretty much tired of $9 rolls of wrapping paper, $20 popcorn tubs, World’s Finest Chocolate Bars and magazines, but every new fangled way to fundraise is either really complicated, or something parents, and families just won’t need. Until now.
PixFunder is a Chattanooga based startup that is helping schools raise funds using something parents really want and everyone will contribute to.
Picture this, it’s the big Friday night football game, or the opening night of the school play. Hundreds of parents are taking pictures of everything. Heck, Mr. Jones just got that 40 mega pixel super DSLR camera and shot 3,000 pics before half time. Now suppose you went to the bathroom just as your kid made the winning touch down, did that double reverse flip off the cheerleader pyramid or had the line of his or her career in the school play. Where are you going to get that photo?
Community members, school parents, etc can create a PixFunder account and upload all of their pics for an event. Then, other parents and community members, heck maybe the local newspaper can go through the archives and pic the photos they want to print. PixFunder charges for the print and 50% of the cost goes right back to the school. It’s an easy way to supplement fundraising all year long.
PixFunder is part Getty Images, part crowdfunding, part crowd sourcing and even part Cafe Press. Pix Funder can allow schools to sell anything with an image on it and make money. Then, PixFunder does the leg work for you. There couldn’t be an easier arrangement, and of course parents, grand parents, family members and more are going to buy prints from PixFunder because it’s convenient and it’s helping students.
