How do I get an organization that I'm involved in listed on the FundPhotos site?
If you are an administrator, board member or managing member of a charitable organization, the first step to getting your organization listed on the FundPhotos site is to complete our online Reward Share Program application form. The form takes about five minutes to complete and gives our team enough information to do an initial evaluation of your organization. In most cases, your organization will be notified within five days of submitting the online application form, if your organization has been conditionally approved. At that time, you will receive an invitation for your organization to join FundPhotos along with our Reward Share Agreement which must be signed by two administrators or board members from your organization.
How does FundPhotos decide on which organizations get listed on FundPhotos?
Using the information provided in the online application form, the FundPhotos team performs an evaluation of each organization. This evaluation includes, but is not limited to, evaluating the status of an organization including checking to make sure an organization is in good standing in the state which it registered, evaluating its mission, their web site (if available), etc. We may even arrange for an interview with the organization's president or board chair. FundPhotos reserves the right to deny any organization's listing on the FundPhotos site due to excessively stringent state requirements governing cause-marketing relationships such as organizations registered in the following states: Alabama, Illinois, and Massachusetts. For more information on state-specific regulatory requirements for cause marketing relationships, contact us at info@FundPhotos.com.
Is there a fee for an organization to be listed on the FundPhotos site?
No. FundPhotos does not charge a fee to organizations to be listed on the FundPhotos site. However, some states require that organizations engaging in a cause marketing fund-raising program submit a copy of the Reward Share Agreement to the state attorney general's office (CT, HI, MS, SC, NH, NJ) and may have filing fees (NJ*) for doing so. For more information contact info@FundPhotos.com.

Can I get information on how much my organization has been rewarded?
Yes. At the end of each month, the contact person named for each participating charitable organization (PCO) listed on the FundPhotos site will receive an email detailing the amount of total purchases made through FundPhotos and the calculated amount of the reward based on 5% of that total. Within a few days after that email, the PCO will receive a check for that amount. The contact person for the PCO can also request information about their reward from FundPhotos at any time by contacting FundPhotos at info@FundPhotos.com.
