Could you use a fundraiser that has multiple income streams, is member-driven, and showcases pets and companion animals?
Here it is! Our Photo Contest service allows you to use a web-based platform to manage a photo contest for your members and other contacts. They submit photos of their pet or companion animal through the internet to your program. These pictures are voted on (for a fee) by your members and their associates, creating a “bidding” atmosphere. The winning pictures (determined by the most votes) may be included in a calendar, or winning animals can win prize packages or other donated items. This creates multiple revenue streams: A submission fee for sending in each photo (determined by you), each “vote” is a donation of a set amount (i.e., $1.00), and revenue from calendar sales if you choose to produce one.
We’ve worked with Humane Societies across the United States. The Sioux Falls Humane Society has just completed their 3rd Photo Contest Calendar campaign, and has had fantastic results. In the past 2 years, they raised over $50,000 using this system. Heidi Hunter, Director of Development at the Sioux Falls Humane Society has this to say. “Factor 360 built a custom Photo Contest piece to assist with on-line donations. Site visitors are able to submit photos and vote directly on our site. When the on-line contest was finished, they also provide graphic design talent by completing the calendar lay out. The Contest has become our second largest fundraiser of the year.”
We also partnered with the Humane Society of the United States on their 2009 National Spay Day program. This raised over $500,000 for them. More info on that can be found at http://photocontest.humanesociety.org/
