We would love to feature your programs across our platforms, but to do so we need images. Feel free to share photos or videos with us at any time. United Way uses these photos to help raise funds and awareness about your work. Most often we’ll include information about the agency and program featured, in addition to naming individuals if/where appropriate. For examples of the types of photos we use and where, see below.
Images that show individuals prominently are kept on file for 3 years, and generic photos without faces may be used for longer. Please ensure you have received appropriate permissions from those photographed to be shared with a third party.
Style: We can use a variety of images, including close-ups, group shots, candids, portraits. In the case of sensitive or vulnerable clients, we are happy to use images of staff or images that do not clearly identify a person. For examples of the types of photos we use, see below.
How: Please email firstname.lastname@example.org at any time with original photos attached (2MB or larger), not compressed or shrunk down. Note that images copied from websites or included in the body of emails are too small for us to use. While we can only receive 20 MB at a time, feel free to send multiple emails or use WeTransfer for multiple images or videos – it is a free service. Please direct to email@example.com.
Info to include: Please include the name of your organization, the name of the program if it is a program photo, and the occassion if relevant. Please also include as much info as you’re able about who is photographed (Are they staff, volunteers, and/or clients? Can we use their names?).
