Are you looking for a unique and profitable fundraiser for your school, church, or nonprofit? If so, consider an engraved bricks fundraiser! This type of fundraiser is growing in popularity because it is a fun and easy way to raise money.
In this blog post, we will discuss different tips for running a successful engraved bricks fundraiser.
Form a fundraising committee
Create a committee that will be responsible for planning and executing the fundraiser. Get people who are organized and have experience with fundraisers, as well as excited about taking on this task since this attitude will help get your fundraiser off the ground. Many nonprofit organizations have staff who specialize in fundraising, so it’s a good idea to start looking for team members from there.
Set clear goals and timelines
Make sure the fundraising committee starts by clearly defining their goals and timelines for reaching those goals. By doing so, you can determine how much money you need to raise, how many bricks you need to sell, and how fast you need to sell them. You’ll also know when you should have accomplished certain tasks, such as scouting engraved bricks suppliers, determining the selling prices, and sending out donor letters.
When setting goals, it’s best to create SMART goals:
For example, a SMART goal for an engraved bricks fundraiser could be to sell 500 bricks in two months. This is specific (you know exactly how many bricks need to be sold), measurable (you can track how many have been sold), achievable (500 bricks is a reasonable number to sell in two months), relevant (engraved bricks are necessary for the fundraiser), and timely (two months is a reasonable amount of time to sell 500 bricks).
Compare engraved bricks suppliers
It is important to choose a reputable and reliable engraved brick company to work with. There are many suppliers out there that offer brick fundraising services, but not all of them are created equal. Do your research and read reviews before selecting a company to partner with. Otherwise, you may end up with subpar products that will reflect poorly on your organization.
Finalize your fundraising method
There are many ways to raise funds using engraved bricks. Many fundraising campaigns sell bricks per piece. The Meals On Wheels of Tarrant County, for instance, sells bricks for around $100 to $500 per piece, depending on the size. The Garibaldi-Meucci Museum, on the other hand, prices each brick at $100 to $750.
You may also opt to auction engraved bricks to the highest bidder, or offer them as a thank you gift for donations of a certain amount. You can also use engraved bricks as prizes for donors who give a certain amount of money. Choose the method that will work best for your organization and your donor base.
Promote your fundraiser
Get the word out about your fundraiser. Be sure to promote it through multiple channels like social media, email, flyers, and personal contact. The more people you can reach, the better your chances of success.
Thank your donors
Once the fundraiser is over, it is important to thank your donors. A simple “thank you” goes a long way and will show your donors that their contribution is appreciated. This can be done with a letter, an email, or even a phone call.
By following these tips, you will surely have a successful campaign that raises the most money possible for your cause. Good luck and happy fundraising!
