One of the best things about Fundraising Brick as a fundraising concept is that it is so flexible. Unlike some types of fundraisers that only work for schools or only work for sports teams, Fundraising Brick can be used to generate needed cash flow for nearly any group. Take a look at five groups that have successfully used (and/or still do use) Fundraising Brick as a cornerstone of their fundraising campaigns.
St. Louis Muny at Forest Park – The Muny is a large outdoor theater. Since it offers many youth programs, even to disadvantaged youth in the city, the theater does not support itself except with the help of donations including the Fundraising Brick program. The Muny has created a brick plaza where hundreds of individuals have inscribed bricks with their memorable moments. Not only has this been profitable for the organization, but it has also created something amazing that visitors will cherish for years to come.
Northwest Alabama Habitat for Humanity – Bricks purchased from the Fundraising Brick campaign for Habitat for Humanity Northwest Alabama helps with the homebuilding efforts and with the challenge of building an office for this group. The bricks themselves are being used in a walkway for the new office.
Special Olympics of Texas – The Special Olympics of Texas found themselves coming up short of the needed funds to complete their new headquarters. They have turned to Fundraising Brick to help raise these additional dollars. The bricks will be installed in the “walk of champions” at the entrance to the building when it is completed.
Stray Rescue – Building an animal shelter is a job that never ends. There always seems to be the need for a new addition or additional items for the animals. Stray Rescue uses Fundraising Brick as a way to earn money for ongoing shelter needs. The tribute bricks are installed in a walkway near the shelter—serving as a beautiful memorial to all those who love animals.
BMW Car Club of America – Sponsoring a teen driver safety program, a conservation program and a national archives and museum is a big task. However, fundraising is much easier for BMW Car Club of America because they chose Fundraising Brick as a partner for their fundraising efforts. This is a natural partnership and a great way for this club to earn additional funding for these big projects.
