How our project support works

Project support from photos purchased in our gallery

Our photographers support our projects with at least 30% of their revenue. However, many of our artists donate a higher percentage, even up to 100%. In addition, Photocircle also supports each project with 6% of the net sales price. Because of this, project support can vary between 10% and 50% of the total sales price.

Project support when printing customs photos

When you print your custom photos at our photo lab, Photocircle will support the social project you have selected with 6% of the net sales price. For us, it is important you know the donation is deducted from our revenue and not put on top of the price. This is because we are committed to doing good while still offering you premium quality products at fair prices.
