Nonprofit giveaways can help organizations accomplish everything from raising funds to raising awareness. Recently, four organizations that used nonprofit promotional items purchased with a 4imprint® one by one® grant shared their stories. If you’re looking for ways to use promotional giveaways, these heart-warming tales are sure to inspire you.
Since 1983, Dane County, Wisconsin-based Attic Angel Association has given more than $7 million to the greater Madison community, while also offering a complete continuum of care for seniors. This includes independent living, semi-independent living and assisted living facilities. As a recipient of a 4imprint one by one grant, Attic Angel Association ordered Value Grocery Totes for use at their Annual Attic Sale. It’s a fundraiser that fills two full-size indoor soccer fields. During the final hours of the sale, a $5 donation buys a tote, which attendees can fill with anything that fits. The event helps the group raise funds and move merchandise.
2. Creating interactive opportunities
The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) is committed to accelerating life-changing breakthroughs for Type 1 diabetes and its complications. The organization is the leading global funder of diabetes research. With its 4imprint one by one grant, the Illinois Chapter of JDRF ordered two promotional products—the Javelin Stylus Pen and the Sport Bottle with Push Pull Lid—to use as booth giveaways at the TypeOneNation Summit vendor fair. These nonprofit promotional items helped make the fair more interactive, as visitors received a passport card encouraging them to visit key JDRF booths. Attendees filled up the card by visiting vendors, and the first 200 to successfully complete the card could bring it back to the event welcome center for a free water bottle.
3. Spreading the word
Serrita Sydnor and Alica Cooper co-founded Butterfly Effect G2W to empower teen moms who were facing the challenges that go along with motherhood at a young age. They used their 4imprint one by one grant to order pens, water bottles and magnets in bright pink—the Butterfly Effect G2W’s brand color—to catch eyes at a community event. These nonprofit promotional items helped the organization increase brand awareness and expand their impact.
4. Increasing awareness
The Nikolas Ritschel Foundation raises money to grant wishes to young adults, aged 18 to 24, with cancer. To date, it has granted more than 72 wishes, including Walt Disney® family vacations, concerts, trips and more. With its 4imprint one by one grant, the Nikolas Ritschel Foundation ordered custom-printed headbands and custom-embroidered beanies for its annual fundraising race called “Nik’s Home Run.” The hats helped the organization increase awareness of its work.
