A Little Bit About Us
Founded in 1989 by Carol Newlin, Original Works was born from a mother’s desire to showcase her child’s creativity through fundraisers for schools and other groups. Today that desire is stronger than ever, driving us to continue to create and deliver inspired school fundraising programs and quality products that celebrate each child’s artistic accomplishments.
As their favorite quick and easy fundraiser of the year, from hands-on school curriculum art projects to online fundraising programs, schools get excited about Original Works – not just as a fundraiser, but as a completely unique experience built on:
- Customer Focus – Designed with our educational communities, families and children in mind, we place a special emphasis on student accomplishment and self-esteem.
- Simplicity – Streamlined designs and easy to follow procedures result in art fundraising ideas and programs that require minimal volunteer time and administrative effort.
- Quality – Our focus on people, innovation and process improvement leads to quality experiences and success for all of our customers.
- Passion – We do what we love and love what we do. Our passion for children, art and education drives us to continue to develop fun, simple and educational school fundraising programs.

What We Do
At Original Works, we know firsthand that parents and teachers who are often put in charge of fundraising activities simply don’t have the time to reinvent the wheel in order to come up with unique school fundraiser ideas. The need for virtual fundraising for schools has become critical. This is where we can help, by facilitating innovative and profitable fundraisers for schools, preschools, private schools and other groups that remove the burden from overworked teachers and parents.
