According to Wikipedia
“Fundraising or fund raising (also known as “development”) is the process of gathering voluntary contributions of money or other resources, by requesting donations from individuals, businesses, charitable foundations, or governmental agencies (see also crowd funding). Although fundraising typically refers to efforts to gather money for non-profit organizations, it is sometimes used to refer to the identification and solicitation of investors or other sources of capital for for-profit enterprises.”
Crowd Funding Playing Cards
The bottom line is many (or most) of the organizations who approach us really do not have the funds to be able to create a custom product on any scale larger than a very small run. What we do is help your organization “crowd fund” or invite your patrons and the community to join in and help make a professional, quality souvenir. You see, here at Real Souvenir Publishing we create customized fundraising tools to help your organization raise funds in a fresh, new way. While we don’t do the fundraising for you, we do try to make it as easy as possible to reach out to patrons, keep organized, get your own “creative collectible” and in the long run…raise money.
