(OSHKOSH, Wis.) – In 2017, over 800 schools, non-profit organizations, religious groups and charitable projects received in-kind grants from 4imprint’s one by one grant program. Each business day throughout the year, 4imprint awarded two $500 promotional product grants, helping organizations large and small accomplish their goals.
Of the in-kind promotional products grants awarded in 2017, grants were given to 134 organizations in the fourth quarter. Among the fourth quarter recipients were:
- Secret Witness, a program that provides students with an anonymous way to report bullying and crimes, requested Javelin Pens with the organization’s phone number. The pens were given to a local school district to help students participate in violence prevention.
- The Bloom Again Foundation provides financial assistance to working women at the poverty level who must miss work due to cancer or other serious illness. The foundation requested Spiral Curve Notebooks to give away in their conference bags during their 2017 fundraiser, The Women’s Career Conference of Pasadena.
- Assistive Technology of Alaska, a group that provides adaptive and accessible devices, tools and software to people with disabilities, gave High Sierra® Elite Fly-By Laptop Backpacks to members of their team. The backpacks allow them to travel more easily, as the group works throughout all of Alaska, including villages where the only way in and out is via float plane.
“The scope of what these organizations are accomplishing is genuinely awe-inspiring,” said Kevin Lyons-Tarr, CEO, 4imprint. “Many of these organizations have been doing incredible work for years, or even decades, touching hundreds of lives. It’s heartwarming to see how promotional products can play a part in their success.”
In addition to awarding over 800 in-kind promotional products grants in 2017, 4imprint also donated preprinted product to 3,200 organizations doing charitable work in the United States and Canada and to troops overseas. The program is continually growing to three grants per day in 2018.
