Regardless of where you are located in the world, disasters might strike. One of the most recent natural disasters to take place was Hurricane Dorian. Locations such as the Abaco Islands in the Bahamas are in desperate need of help of rebuilding their community and are needing relief for those who lost countless belongings, their homes and loved ones. If you are wanting to raise money for those affected by a national disaster, a brick fundraiser is a simple and efficient way to do so.
Why a brick fundraising is the best way to raise money for humanitarian help?
- There are many humanitarian organizations that receive donations to help provide relief for victims of natural disasters and end up keeping a large chunk of the proceeds. With a brick fundraising, all of the proceeds will go to your organization aside from the cost of the engraved bricks. The money can then be directly allocated to those in need.
- One major incentive of participating in a brick fundraiser is that your donors get a personalized engraved brick. Whether your benefactors want to remember a loved one or are just wanting to create a fun, custom engraved brick, they will be able to do so while also helping a great cause.
- Lastly, if your organization decides to start a brick campaign to help those affected by a natural disaster, there is a possibility you can have a tax write off. While it is always better to give than to receive, this is a great benefit that allows you to give and receive at the same time. Please check with your local accountant or State to see what type of tax benefit you would be eligible for.
