Fundraising made simple: Earn commission with an easy online Shutterfly store
Fundraising is an important step for most churches to fund special projects or unforeseen expenses. Want to send your members on a mission trip? Let's set up a fundraiser. Want to fund repairs on your building? Fundraising to the rescue. Need new supplies for your church staff? Launch a fundraiser!
The problem is, fundraising can be difficult, time consuming and slow. You do it because your church and the members benefit from the extra funds, but you probably often wonder if there's a better way. Fortunately, you do have unique fundraising option at your disposal. If host a Lifetouch photography event between now and December 31, 2019, there is an exclusive fundraising opportunity to raise money 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 your members 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 staff, families and friends to expand the fundraising potential. Add the URL to bulletins and promote on social media to remind people to order amazing items and help their church reach their fundraising goals.
Earn 8% of sales
When anyone makes purchases on Shutterfly through your custom URL, 8% of the total goes directly to your church. There is no 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 $960 for the church. That's likely much more than a bake sale and certainly much less work, plus unlike limited-time fundraising events, your custom URL for your Storefront stays active for as long as you'd like.
