4imprint® Announces $58,000 in In-Kind Grants and Donations to Nonprofits
(OSHKOSH, Wis.) – Through its one by one® charitable giving program, promotional products retailer 4imprint donated $58,000 in promotional items to more than 100 nonprofit organizations and charities throughout the United States and Canada in the second quarter of 2012.
The one by one program is a reflection of 4imprint’s commitment to customers and community. The one by one grants help charities generate awareness for their organizations, reach customers, promote events and thank key audiences, using $500 in-kind donations of promotional products. 4imprint also donates product samples to community organizations who don’t receive a one by one grant to help advance their cause.
“It’s inspiring to see the good things these organizations are doing to help others,” says Kevin Lyons-Tarr, president and CEO. “They have great stories to tell. We hope these grants will help them as they tell those stories.”
4imprint is accepting applications for its 2012 one by one program online at http://onebyone.4imprint.com. Any 501(c) 3 organization, registered Canadian charity, school or religious organization is encouraged to apply.
