Why this is great for contributors
Much of the time, when you choose brick fundraising, you're asking for contributions to your large project and offering to permanently recognize the contribution. In many ways, this can work in the same way as a sponsorship. When businesses and individuals contribute to the total cost of your project, you essentially offer them special thanks in a place where potentially hundreds of others will see it.
Plus, when people contribute to this kind of project, they are looking for the gratification of having done something good - and maybe a little free advertising - but not much else. They aren't buying a product. Many people who contribute to this kind of fundraiser often enjoy the different price options that they have, which offers flexibility to contribute only what's affordable and still have the chance to see their message on a brick.
Why this is great for your organization
Whether you're building a playground or an entire building, brick fundraising is a special way to pull in some major contributors and allow your organization to reap most of the profits. You can choose certain bricks according to the contribution level, but most of them cost much less than you might think. This allows you to profit more and offer free advertising to your contributors for life.
The different price points on bricks or pavers can be really wonderful for your organization, because there will be some major contributors. These are usually businesses which know that with the potential for lifetime advertising, the brick will pay for itself over time. When it's added to the tax benefits of donating money to a fundraiser, brick fundraising will prove to be an economically sound donation in a not so sound economy.
How to do it
When it comes to brick fundraisers, you might not know where to start. There are many fundraising companies who can help you with this, or you can simply find a stone or brick company which specializes in this sort of thing. Much of the time, when you are building something, if you discuss your desires with the project manager, they can line you up with the proper people.
Here are some tips to get you going so you can have the best experience with brick fundraising possible:
If you're looking for a way to generate a potentially large profit for your organization, then brick fundraising might be just what you need to get the financing your organization really needs.
All the best!
