Pam McGinnis Portraits
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 www.pammcginnis.com.
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

What do you need from us?

decide the sales potential and together we will determine the
size of the limited edition.
