Philadelphia Foundation


Event Photography


This project will save us $5,048 , allowing us to provide 20 classroom/field trip presentations to students on environmental stewardship, recycling, composting and related topics.

What We Need

  • A photographer who will attend the Organization's event to take photos
  • A set of professionally edited, high-resolution images delivered in a digital format suitable for web or print use
  • Note: The photographer needs to be available in the same geographical location as the Organization or be willing to travel at own expense

Nice To Have

Some video capability as well

How This Will Help

This event is our major fundraiser for the year (November 15, 5-9pm) - we use it to highlight our work and recognize environmental leaders. We use the photos from this event on our website, social media, and publications. Having high quality, professional photographs will help us engage with our members, supporters, and the larger community to share our story and mission to protect the environment and conserve natural resources.

What We Have In Place

We currently have a FB page with 2200 likes and instagram with 500+ followers which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a webpage with info about the event and the ability to provide any other information you need.

Fun Fact

PRC originated the Don't Be a Litterbug Campaign back in the 1950s. The Litterbug continues as our mascot and will be at the event.
