Pinhole Press pledges to donate $1,000 to Five 501(c)(3) organizations



Pinhole Press, a local eCommerce company specializing in personalized photo gifts, games and cards, has pledged to donate $1,000 to five not-for-profit organizations across the nation. 

The idea was born out of Pinhole Press's new fundraising program, which promises up to 50% gross profit on sales generated by registered schools and 501(c)(3) organizations. The model was designed to be simple - no order processing, no selling, no fundraising costs, no distributing orders, and no minimums. Any school or 501(c)(3) can register and needs to only have just one order placed by December 5th to be entered to win $1,000.

"Children are drawn to photos of the people they love, and become even more interested when it comes to seeing photos of themselves," says Pinhole Press Owner and CEO, Bill Gamble. "When we thought about where our personalized photo gifts and games could make the greatest impact, it made sense to start in the classroom. From there, we wanted to make a difference by making nonprofits and other organizations eligible for enrollment as well."

Local schools and 501(c)(3) organizations are encouraged to register for upcoming campaigns or reach out with any additional questions. To learn more, please email [email protected]
