Recognizing that schools need additional financial support and a creative way to raise funds, Giving Studio provides a better fundraising alternative to support the local community through both fundraising AND sales. Local artisans provide goods to sell through a market provided by the school, and participating schools earn funds from 20% of the sales of high-quality, handmade goods. It’s giving forward and giving back!
Giving Studio was launched in 2013 and has taken off with the support of local schools, artists, and loyal customers. Werremeyer developed a beautiful brand and launched a responsive website at givingstudio.com. An online marketplace, social media strategy, on-site signage, and an annual sales catalog support this unique sales program.
To date, Giving Studio has given over $5,000 back to participating schools. This is a great accomplishment for a company that just began two years ago.
