Dynamic School Fundraising Ideas for Educational Empowerment

Tired of using the same candy sale year after year to support your school’s fundraising efforts? Try a brick fundraiser as a tool to achieve your financial goals. There are many ways a school can benefit from engraved bricks or tiles placed in a walkway, a wall, or a beautiful garden.

Engraved brick and tile projects for schools tend to fall under one of these main categories:

• Beautification projects
• School Pride
• Alumni Recognition
• Special Projects
• Community Fundraising

Beautification Projects:

Using engraved bricks and tiles can be used to improve the look of your school while also raising money. Engraved bricks and tiles can create walkways, patios, gardens, create walls, seating areas, and more. Engraved tiles can be used on interior or exterior walls to create beautiful memorials or donor recognition walls. They can be used to display your school mascot or school seal using tile or brick arrays. Brick or tile arrays are artwork that is engraved across multiple bricks or tiles put together like a jigsaw puzzle and make gorgeous centerpieces for any engraved brick fundraising project.

School Pride:

This type of project can be used for schools ranging from preschool all the way up to universities and colleges. If your fraternity or sorority is looking to raise money, an engraved brick or tile fundraising campaign is sure to be a success! This type of fundraiser allows the students, faculty, and staff to show off their school pride. Many schools allow students to not only have text engraved on the bricks and tiles, but they can also engrave clip art of the school’s mascot, custom artwork, or different sports and activities like band, dance, or drama clubs.

Alumni Recognition:

This type of project is very popular, especially with high schools and universities. Engraved bricks and tiles usually feature the student’s name graduation year may also include clip art or logos just like the school pride fundraisers. Any type of alumni organization can benefit from a brick or tile fundraising campaign; consider including past and present students and alumni.

Special Projects:

School fundraising with a purpose; our clients over the years have created fundraisers to raise money for building stadiums and outdoor classrooms, pay for uniforms for cheerleaders, football teams, and bands, funding for class trips. This type of engraved brick fundraising campaign can ease the cost for parents to come up with the fees associated with these activities.

Community Fundraising:

Schools giving back to the community help to foster and develop the involvement of students in charity from a young age. It is both a rewarding experience and helps to better the community; in turn, the community will also be more involved in giving back to the school. These types of community fundraising projects are great for the community as well as the school and students involved, everybody wins!
