Thank you so much for wanting to partner with me!
I created the Art for Compassion™ initiative on the basis of helping animals in need and the rescuers who take them under their care.
As outlined on my website, the main concept is to offer a custom, original painting for the winner of a raffle-type of fundraiser. The winner will get to pick between a custom Acrylic on canvas or Gouache on paper painting.
I am, however, open to other suggestions that you may have!
The application to partner form from my website asked you to provide a realistic goal amount to raise in funds that is attainable by your supporters. Your goal amount will help me to determine the painting size that I can provide. The goal amount to raise should be large enough (however, also realistic!) to raise as much money as possible. I try to work it out that my cost is only 1/3 of the total goal so that the remaining 2/3 of the balance goes entirely to your rescue/shelter! The winner is responsible to cover the shipping and insurance separately (please include this in the fundraiser's details!).
Our project will be featured on my website under the “Art for Compassion” menu and in the “Projects” area. Your organization’s logo will also be featured with a direct link embedded to direct traffic directly to your site! It will also be highlighted in my newsletter and on my social media pages (specifically, Facebook and Instagram) as well as on my blog.
In return, I require that the Rescue Groups/Shelters I partner with, promote the project through their social media pages, newletter and website including a direct link to my website. I will also provide flyers for adoption events - when one of your adopters commissions a painting, I will give your rescue group/shelter 10% of the revenue!
If this is still something you'd like to do, please e-mail your required logo file and proof of 5013(c) non-profit or no-kill status to "firstname.lastname@example.org".
I will provide you with a project agreement that simply outlines the details of our agreement that will need to be signed and returned before beginning our partnership.
Thank you so much! I'm looking very forward to doing something great together!
