Support artisans and help change the face of commerce.
Fundraising is open to agencies, NPOs, charitable or non-charitable organizations or independent "causes" that would like to receive donations through eCommerce sales. each Shop Merchant involved has the option to commit a percent of their sales to a good cause.
- Artisan commits to a “Cause” to donate %sales regularly, and post a banner-ad in their shop.
- Each artisan must be willing to run an eCommerce business of their own.
- The artisan prepares her/his work so ArtCommons can build a shop and provide support.
- A PayPal donation button is posted on an exclusive fundraising page to make %sale donations easy for shop merchants to do, and will also record the groups overall fundraising progress.
