child event photography pricing?

I take photos for fun, and I love taking photos of my kids. I end up getting shots of other people's kids just because I can. For example, my little kid is playing in a soccer league right now, so I'm trying to capture good action shots of him and the kids going after the ball.

Since there are lots of working pros in NYC trying to make a living, I feel bad just giving this stuff away. I'm sure it would normally cost you good money to get photos like this from a pro.

Since these are actually pretty decent photos, I was thinking I could use the photos to raise money for our local schools or something.

Could anyone advise on how to price stuff like this? I'm not looking to make any money off of my photos, but I thought I would charge a fair price for it as a school fundraiser.

I haven't done any post processing, I just deleted all the OOF pictures. The parents will select the ones they want.

I was thinking I could charge for either 1080 or 4K or original res digital photos which they'll probably share on Facebook and keep for posterity. What do people usually charge for digital photos of kids in event photography?

Here's a set:
