“The money we raise will go to your local hospital and make a difference.” John Hartman – COO, Children’s Miracle Network
ZERO-RISK, LONG-TERM, SUSTAINABLE FUNDING
Funding Innovations Easel Program is designed to provide charitable and humanitarian organizations with a zero-risk, long-term, sustainable source of funding. Our Easel Program allows individuals to purchase beautiful art & incredible collectables and support a worthy cause at the same time.
Partnering with Children’s Miracle Network, Funding Innovation raises hundreds of thousands of dollars every year for their awe-inspiring missions. The best part is that these completely discretionary funds are zero-risk and require zero-investment from Children’s Miracle Network.
**Your store will be credited and recognized for the funds raised!**

ZERO COSTS, ZERO RESOURCES
As our charitable and humanitarian partner list grows, so too grows our corporate partnerships, allowing for more easel locations and expanding the opportunities to give and make a real difference. The Easel Program runs nationwide across Canada, connecting people with a simple and effective medium and allowing them to participate in creating positive change.
CAN IT REALLY BE THAT EASY?
Here are some questions and answers from our meetings together:
Your Funding Innovation team will help you assess your location for best strategic placement and advise as to the optimal spot. You want a place that is easily accessible and visible to foot traffic and that will not impede flow.
We are all about the details so we track funds raised by individual location, by the benefiting hospital, and by group; both provincially and nationally.
We know you want to promote your support for your local children’s hospital under the umbrella of raising funds for the Children’s Miracle Network, so built into every easel there is a large display board that will predominantly display the logo and name of your local children’s hospital! We will also do more and more together, to continue to announce the impact of this initiative.
Absolutely. We encourage you to share on social media and are happy to help develop and format shareable materials. The easiest way is to take photographs and post to your channels. Tag us on our Funding Innovation Facebook page and use the hashtag #GAMECHANGER.
Funding Innovation changes art on a two-week schedule, so the longest a piece will be on display is two weeks.
The easel itself and all display pieces are fully insured by Funding Innovation and will quickly be replaced or repaired.
Funding Innovation uses distinct, high quality, Canadian made easels that make them highly recognizable. If the easel you are referring to is constructed of light coloured wood and doesn’t have our logo, it’s not ours.
Funding Innovation offers a wide variety of pieces for easel display and will rotate different ones through different locations at different times. We also track how well pieces are received in specific areas and work to deliver items that the market wants.
As of March, 2018, Funding Innovation is working with 105 small charities.
65% of net proceeds raised is guaranteed for ALL our charitable partners. FundingInnovation offers full and transparent disclosure and offers an audit to Children’s Miracle Network.
Funding Innovation offers $25 shipping, anywhere in Canada. When a bidder has been particularly generous to the charity, we like to give them complimentary shipping.
