A New Idea in Fundraising
Giving Studio provides quality artisan goods for school fundraising sales. We offer the goods on a website with sale pages tailored specifically to your school and provide many exclusive, handcrafted, quality gifts and home goods that are unique, smart and stylish. Each season we create new collections of wonderful items we’ve discovered.
Our mission is to give organizations a new and better way of fundraising that is easy, fun and saves time. By offering convenient ordering and delivery options for our products, out-of-town friends and family can still support local schools, businesses and charities.
Your school provides a sale ambassador or two, who are the school representatives for each sale and Giving Studio provides the promotional materials, website, goods and delivery. We have also made fundraising easier and safer — with our online ordering features and delivery options. Kids can still participate in the selling process. Working with you, the sale and deliveries are scheduled to provide the maximum profits to the school.
Giving Studio is a new idea in fundraising – turning school fundraisers into an enjoyable shopping and gift giving experience. By giving back to our schools and charities while supporting our local artists and craftsmen, we make a difference in our community. Giving Studio makes everyone feel better about fundraising. The results? Higher sales and more goodwill.
