Commemorative brick fundraising, in particular, can be ongoing depending on the type of installation project you choose to do. When you install your memorial bricks in a sand bed, you would be able to remove blank bricks and replace them with custom engraved bricks as you continue to sell them. This type of installation would allow you to continue your fundraising efforts for as long as you have blank bricks to replace. Your donors will appreciate the opportunity to have their own personalized memory brick and to be part of your project.

We help plan profitable brick campaigns and commemorative brick inscription ideas and would love to help you achieve a very special memorial brick program. Call us directly at 800-546-7993.

Commemorative Brick FAQs

Conducting a brick fundraiser involves several key steps. Initially, clarify the fundraising purpose, set specific goals, and determine the required amount of money for your project. Then, identify an appropriate location for the bricks, whether it’s a memorial area, a garden, a walkway, or even a wall. Afterward, establish pricing for the engraved bricks and define any customization options available. Following this, promote the fundraising within the community with press releases and flyers engaging potential donors by explaining its importance and encouraging brick purchases. Upon receiving orders, collaborate with a professional engraving service like Polar Engraving to personalize the bricks with donor names, logos, and messages. Lastly, place the engraved bricks in the designated area for public visibility and appreciation.

The tax deductibility of commemorative bricks can vary based on the tax laws in your region and the specific organization conducting the fundraiser. In many cases, brick donations to nonprofit organizations may be tax deductible. To ensure eligibility, it’s advisable to consult with the organization, an accountant and check local tax regulations.

Commemorative bricks often feature the names of donors, supporters, or loved ones being honored. Additional details may include dates, short messages, or symbols relevant to the cause or fundraiser.

To clean memorial bricks, use a soft-bristle brush or a cloth with mild soap and water. Gently scrub the surface to remove dirt or stains, don’t use high pressure washer. Avoid abrasive cleaners like bleach or materials that could damage the engraved text or design. Regular maintenance will help keep memorial bricks looking their best for years to come.

On a legacy brick or donation brick, you have the opportunity to leave a lasting message or tribute that holds personal significance. You can include the donor’s name or the name of the individual or organization being honored. In addition to names, you can add meaningful dates, such as birthdates or dates of achievement. Many donors also choose to include a heartfelt message, a short quote, or words of appreciation. The content you choose should reflect the purpose and sentiment behind the legacy brick, whether it’s to commemorate a loved one, celebrate an achievement, or contribute to a meaningful cause. It’s a chance to create a lasting impression and be recognized for your support and dedication to the cause.
