Commemorative bricks do more than build walls, pathways, and buildings. They can also build a sense of community and cement the relationships with that community. Just as each of the memorial brick inscriptions honor an individual, the collective effect of the memorial is to reflect a community and all that it respects and values. Such community buildings, memorial walls, commemorative brick pavers, and other installations become powerful symbols. They indicate the solid bedrock on which a strong community is built.
When funding such projects, engage both public and private entities within the community. Many locals are motivated to give back because they want to see their community thrive. Consider also reaching out to non-residents who may feel ties to the project, whether it’s because of the people involved or the cause that it honors.
One of the challenges, of course, is that the current economy has increased competition among non-profits for donor dollars. As a result, community groups often have a core group of members whose primary focus is on yearly fundraising efforts. If you are a member of such a fundraising group, you already know that you have been charged with a very important task.
We at Fundraising Brick can help you make your memorial wall fundraiser a success. Based on our many years of experience, we can confirm that fundraising campaigns need to be meaningful to your donors and supporters, profitable, and capable of sustaining donations year after year.
An engraved brick fundraising event meets all of those requirements. Engraved brick or tile fundraising has become increasingly popular because profitability levels can be scalable to your specific organization’s funding needs. Begin the process by asking and answering plenty of questions:
This will help your group determine the scope and timeline of the project. For example, it’s important to know upfront whether your goal is to raise a few thousand dollars on a limited-scale project, or to generate hundreds of thousands of dollars on a more ambitious installation or structure. In any event, Fundraising Brick can facilitate the effort. For example, in situations where annual recurring donations are desired, we can assist with coordinating brick or tile re-orders to ensure repeated ordering periods are available for your donors.
Throughout your fundraising campaign, be sure to provide your donors with incentives to give—and give again. One of the most effective ways to do this is by sharing one or more visuals, such as an artist’s perspective. This can inspire donors by reminding them of the goal. Our website features many superb visuals that showcase the beauty of our engraved brick pavers, memorial brick walls, tile wall installations, and other laser engraved products.
Other points to emphasize during fundraising are the durability and weather-resistance of our commemorative bricks and tiles. The process of laser etching ensures that the application of each inscription will be permanent. Fundraising Brick backs this up with a lifetime guarantee. In the unlikely event that a defect occurs, we will fix it or replace it.
Our products are suitable for almost every type of memorial site. Bricks and tiles can be used for interior or exterior installations. Due to our advanced laser capabilities, there are countless options for the designs, fonts, clipart, and logos that we can inscribe into the bricks. We create authentically customized pieces that donors love and fundraisers are proud to promote.
