Last week we compared two art fundraising opportunities, Artsonia vs. Art to Remember. The responses and comments from everyone were amazing and very insightful! Many other great fundraising options were mentioned, so we took your ideas and suggestions and created The Ultimate Guide to Art Fundraisers.
Please use this chart as way to compare some of the best art fundraisers to help give our art budgets a little boost. These programs are designed to help art teachers supplement their budgets while at the same time promoting your program.
A few things that I do want to mention that we could not squeeze on this wonderful chart is the overwhelming response to Artsonia’s ability to build an art advocacy program by sharing students artwork with parents, grandparents, and community members through the online gallery. Many of you said that the reaction from students seeing their work shared with the world was priceless and worth the extra effort it took to upload all those photos.
Many of you also said that you did Artsonia and another program. You used Artsonia for the gallery feature and the other program (Art to Remember, Square 1 Art or Oringal Works- all somewhat similar) to have a one time fundraising event. Art to Remember, Square 1 and Original Works are, as one reader said, comparing apples to apples. Artsonia and Kids Art Festival are different types of fundraisers.
Check out the links below for more information about each of these programs.
The Ultimate Guide to Art Fundraisers will hopefully make my decision a little easier, and yours, too, if you’ve also been considering a fundraiser for next year. Many of you mentioned that a combination works best for you and your program, I’ll try to take your advice on this one. Thanks for all our your input and insight-Happy Fundraising!
