Professional Photo Albums for Charity Galas

Professional Photo Albums for Charity Galas | Zookbinders

A professional photo album is a wonderful way to preserve any special occasions. While weddings, Mitzvahs, and portraits are traditionally showcased in photo albums, many other events and celebrations should have a physical copy to tell the story of the celebration.  In this blog, we will explore the opportunities to offer professional photo albums for charity galas. 


Tell The Story

Albums created from gala and philanthropic campaigns can showcase the cause, and provide a lasting memory for attendees, volunteers, and honorees. Professional photo albums can serve as a valuable fundraising tool, a way to thank sponsors and supporters.

Often images from a special event, like an award ceremony or gala, are used in a few social media posts and marketing pieces. Their usage is pretty sparse in relation to the impact of the efforts made to raise funds, create scholarships, and better the lives of others. Having professionally designed photo albums to memorialize the efforts and contributions of donors and stewards makes an excellent gift that can be viewed time and time again. 

Creating a unique professional photo album from a charity event not only preserves the memories of the occasion but also provides a tangible way to showcase the charity’s mission. The impact of stewardship can be strategically and emotionally documented through imagery. An album can focus on event highlights, the organization’s work, and how funds impact the ongoing projects.

Many Uses

If you are photographing award ceremonies, galas, or fundraising events, putting together a marketing piece on how albums can accompany photographic services is an excellent way to share the many uses of photo albums. In addition, adding these events to your calendar during slower seasons can find you extra revenue.  Feel free to copy-paste these suggestions! 


Photo Albums as Marketing Tools

Having a handcrafted professional photo album on display is a great conversation starter. Powerpoint presentations are great, but a physical book is an experience. Years of hard work could be represented by volumes of photo albums. 

  • Photo albums from philanthropic events can showcase a campaign’s success.
  • Albums provide a lasting personal memory for charity founders. 
  • Photo books can serve as a valuable fundraising tool.
  • Display albums can be used to raise awareness about the charity’s mission.
  • Photo albums can serve as a powerful tool for ongoing fundraising efforts and for building relationships with supporters and donors.
  • Sponsor logos and branding that are featured in the photo album is an added value to those vendors who support the organization.

Photo Albums as Gifts

Premium photo albums are a unique way to thank board members and donors. Their professional quality exceeds anything on the consumer market. 

Events happen quickly! An album stops time, and they make great keepsakes for honorees and volunteers alike. 

  • Gifting in Conjunctions with Recognition or Awards
  • Chairperson/President Gift
  • Legacy Donors or Member Thank You’s 
  • Award Recipient Keepsake

Photo Albums for Fundraising

Photo albums can also be used to generate revenue or add interest to a campaign,  or a special promotion. Pictures captured on a cell phone won’t compare to printed images bound in a leather album.
