Fund Raiser

Pam McGinnis Portraits Fundraising Package

Every community seems to have a building that they have restored and are proud of it, or that they have had to tear down and are sick about it. Possibly urban renewal may have changed the look of your Main Street, but you have fond childhood memories of the way it use to be.

Use that image and those cherished memories to raise funds for your community or restoration project by offering a memorable, signed and numbered limited edition art print.

My name is Pam McGinnis, and I am an artist from Carroll, Iowa. I have built a solid reputation for drawing highly detailed portraits and producing fine quality art prints. I would like to offer you this profitable custom-made fundraising opportunity. All you need to do is provide me with a clear photo of the image you would like to have drawn, and I can create an art print made specifically for your community or project. When matted, these art prints fit easily into a standard 11”x 14” frame – no need for custom framing.

This Art Print Fundraising Package is designed to provide you with a custom made work of art without the commitment of large volume purchasing. The beauty of this package is that you may decide to have, for example, 300 limited edition prints made, but you are not required to purchase all 300 prints. You purchase the original drawing and the first 50 prints. Later, if the demand is high, you may purchase more prints. You can buy small amounts and not get “stuck” with a lot of prints.

Fundraising success stories include the community of Templeton, Iowa, who celebrated their Quasquicentennial in 2007, and commissioned an art print which showed their Main Street as it looked in 1910. At a New Year’s Eve fundraising party, they auctioned their #1 print for $1000 and their #2 print for $750. Mt. Carmel, Iowa, will soon lose their school, built in 1909, but have commissioned me to do an art print in order to preserve its memory. They are currently taking advance orders and offering a discount to early birds.

Enclosed is a price breakdown and answers to some commonly asked questions. If you are curious to see other examples of my artwork, check out my website at

This fundraiser has proven very successful in several communities in Iowa. Call or e-mail me today to place your order. I am more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

What do you need from us?
I need a clear photo of one building or one scene to be drawn. (The above prices do not apply to composite drawings.) The selected photo will be subject to my approval. A good, clear photo will help me to draw fine details that create a memorable drawing. I would also like to consult with your committee to decide the sales potential and together we will determine the size of the limited edition.
