* Helping Hands from PRAC
True Patriot Love Foundation ~ check out our Opportunities page
Frequently we receive requests from organizations asking for donations from our members. It is not PRAC's policy to send requests to members, but as some members may choose to support different causes, we provide this list for them.
When you request donated artwork we know you have a plan to promote the event/ raffle in order for you to raise the most funds, so please include:
- where the donation will be published/promoted (how the artist will be promoted/acknowledged)
- do you issue a tax receipt
- is it a 50/50 sharing of funds raised
- what percentage of the value will the minimum bid be set at?
- will you supply the artist with the name of the purchaser?
- will there be a free event ticket for the artist?
Our artists are most generous and we look forward helping both you and the artist benefit from your partnership.
