It’s that time of the year again! Whether you’re a student, teacher or parent the beginning of a new school year can be an exciting time. A fresh start requires new materials and supplies which can add up quite easily- but what do you do when you run out of funds to cover those costs? Brick fundraising is a simple solution.
What are some of the benefits of a brick fundraiser?
1. Unique Form of Fundraising
Most school fundraisers require you to become a salesman or to ask for donations, which ends up being more of a hassle than anything. As well, some fundraisers give ranked prizes to children based on how much money they earned – setting up majority of the children for disappointment. Brick fundraising is a more simple, stress-free process because it removes the competitive aspect out of fundraising.
2. Community Involvement
The fundraiser benefits many members of the community outside of the school. Businesses, for instance, get to advertise about themselves on the engraved brick and gain more exposure. Those looking for a special way to commemorate a lost loved one can now create a small brick memorial for them through a commemorative brick. There are also others who simply want to create an engraved brick for the fun of it! The opportunities are truly endless.
3. Making an Everlasting Impact
One of the many perks of purchasing a brick from a brick campaign is the fact that it lasts forever. For years to come, your brick will remain wherever the school decided to place it and can be cherished for years to come. Additionally, bricks can be added over the years to create new opportunities for those who were unable to participate in the past.
4. Enhances Appearance of Campus
Whether your brick project is placed in a garden, by a playground or simply in a walkway, it is guaranteed to enhance the appearance of the school. For all of those on the school’s campus, it is truly a pleasure to see and admire all of the engravings collectively.
