Catholic schools are on a mission: to educate their students in the Catholic faith as well as to provide them with the knowledge and skills that will help these young people go on to live productive and happy lives. Catholic school fundraisers are an important part of fulfilling that mission.
Yet, unlike public schools, Catholic schools receive no funding from tax dollars and all income must come from tuition, the school’s parish, diocese, archdiocese, religious institute, or – rarely – from a Catholic university. Fundraising efforts, therefore, are paramount to a school’s fiscal health.
Whether your Catholic school needs extra monies to bolster the curriculum, to provide school field trips, or to add extracurricular activities such as sports or music, art or theater classes, parents, teachers and administrators think of fundraising constantly.
Original Works’ Catholic School fundraising programs are those in which your students create original works of art which we then place on coffee mugs, mouse pads, magnets, etc. Your students’ parents and friends can then purchase one or more of these items. Our fundraising program is one of the most – yes, we’ll say it again – original fundraising ideas available today in America.
(Other companies may now offer this program, but Original Works was the first to introduce this concept, in 1989).
How Original Works Works for Catholic School Fundraisers
If you’d like to hold one of our artwork fundraisers for your Catholic School, it starts by having your students create their masterpiece (we can offer ideas and even lesson plans for your faculty members). We then reproduce the artwork on a variety of items such as (in addition to those named above), t-shirts, tote bags, ceramic tiles, journals, even pendant necklaces.
