Say “thanks” to your donors, while incentivizing larger donations
Donors drive many important efforts for the good of their community. Because of this, it’s equally important to create opportunities for donor recognition. Your final brick installation—whether it’s a memorial, walkway, commemorative wall or garden installation—will give donors something to be proud of.
But we also offer many donor recognition programs as a way to say “thanks,” as well as incentivize donors to contribute to your campaign.
Here are some of our “program enhancers” aimed at recognizing the generosity of your donors:
Replica bricks for your donors
For the same cost as bricks designated for installation, we can provide your donors with a full-size replica of the laser engraved brick they purchased in conjunction with your fundraiser. This is a great opportunity for you to increase any given donors’ total contribution, while also giving them a keepsake they can proudly display at home or in the office.
These Replica Brick Pavers are full size (4×8 or 8×8), and exactly match the engraved brick designated for installation. Additionally, all Replica Brick Pavers come with rubber feet on the bottom, so your donor can exhibit their brick on a shelf, desk or table without scratching the surface of their furniture. Replica Brick display cases can also be purchased to beautifully display your custom engraved brick. Please contact Fundraising Brick for additional details.
Based on our 20 years of experience, we suggest pricing Replica Brick Pavers at approximately one-half the price of your engraved installation bricks. For example, if you are selling a 4X8 paver for $100.00, then the replica should be offered to the donor for $50.00. If you are selling the 8X8 paver for $250.00, then the replica should be offered to the donor for $125.00. This gives the donor a perception of value but still ensures that each brick is still profitable for your organization.
Certificates of authenticity
A certificate of authenticity can be mailed to your donors that purchased a brick paver for your organization. The certificate of authenticity confirms that a brick was purchased and installed to benefit your organization. The certificate looks great and can be proudly displayed in an 8×10 frame for everyone to see. Just speak with your Fundraising Brick representative to customize a certificate for your specific fundraising campaign.
You can offer your donors a small memorabilia of an exact replica of their brick. Mini Replicas can be engraved with the donor’s inscription, and used a way to recognize your donors as a thank you for their contributions or they can be used in conjunction with your fundraiser to help raise additional funds for your brick campaign.
Additionally, the mini bricks can be used as a business promotional item or they can be used as incentives or giveaways in conjunction with your fundraiser. The possibilities are endless.
Proudly display your mini brick for your family, friends, and co-workers to see. It can be used as a paperweight or add a magnet to the back and place it on your refrigerator or simply use it as a conversation piece. Mini bricks are available in two sizes 1X3X.75 or 3X3X.75 and come with four felt pads.
For your top-tier donors, it’s always nice to have a way to say “thank you” with a memento that commemorates their contributions to your fundraising campaign. Contact Fundraising Brick today to learn more about how a donor recognition program might work for you!
