Charity fundraisers are particularly common, and brick engraving can help for generosity events; brick programs should explain to the donors the fund usage after the engraving is complete. Transparency is necessary for a good campaign, as people like to know what they are donating towards.

Which ideas are good for long-term projects that require funding over time?

Most of the time, brick fundraisers continue over a period of time either because the target has not been reached, or because it is a long-term project which requires resources for maintenance. 

Usually, when the bricks are installed in sand, it is easy to replace them; blank bricks can be used for the initial setup, and as donors and sponsors buy the engraved bricks, the blanks can be taken out and replaced with the engraved pavers. This keeps the fundraiser going on, allowing the organizations to continue raising capital for their objectives.

More and more engraved brick ideas are being used to boost a brick campaign and awareness in the community for projects like universities, animal refuges, zoos, etc. This is one great way to begin to raise funds as you know exactly how the money is being used.

Human beings have always been obsessed with leaving a trace like cave painting, constructing monuments, and creating art; pavers engraving is another great way to do it, leaving your mark for years.
