Giving Back to the Community

Donations to Non-Profits

Over the past ten years, Dwyer Photography has donated gift certificates to charities in the Boston area totaling over a quarter of a million dollars. These gift certificates have ranged from $400 to $1,200. Non-profits are welcome to use these however they want i.e. between silent and live auctions. If you are a non-profit and would like a gift certificate, or know of a non-profit that offers auctions as part of its fund-raising mix, Dwyer would welcome your inquiry (781) 326-8916.

Dwyer also occasionally donates photography services to non-profits e.g. Save Venice and Music Worcester. The only two qualifications is that it must not be for something that in the past a professional photographer was hired for (don’t want to take bread out of the mouths of those of us feeding our families through photography), and you must explain whatever plan you have to actually use the photos.
