Adding photos to your fundraiser

Fundraisers with compelling images that relate to the cause you’re raising funds for can promote engagement from potential donors, which can lead to increased donations. If you don't have a specific photo you'd like to use, you can use these templates on Canva to create a unique visual for your fundraiser!

When considering what images to choose, ask yourself a few questions:

  • How does this image help tell my story?
  • What feelings does this image evoke?
  • What kind of image would inspire me to donate?

Once you’ve selected an image to include in your fundraiser, keep these tips in mind:

  • The photo size is recommended to be 720 x 405
  • You’ll want to use JPEG, PNG, or BMP as the file type
  • The file size should be smaller than 20 MB
  • Make sure your image is clear
  • If you’re using someone else’s image, consider whether you have the rights to use it
