4imprint® Donates Promotional Products to Hundreds of Charitable Organizations
Through its one by one® Program
(OSHKOSH, Wis.) – 4imprint donated $208,000 in promotional products to 416 charities, nonprofits and community organizations through its one by one charitable giving program in 2013. Organizations selected throughout the United States and Canada use the $500 in-kind promotional grants for a variety of charitable causes.
The promotional product uses are as diverse as the charities themselves. From a branded teddy bear for a children’s foundation in Canada to sport bottles that were handed out to a food bank in Utah, one by one recipients use the charitable promotional product grants for direct service to help people in need, fund-raising, team-building, word-of-mouth marketing and more.
“Year after year, these organizations continue to impress us with the work they are doing to improve lives and communities,” said 4imprint President Kevin Lyons-Tarr. “We’re humbled and honored to hear how organizations use these items to make a difference.”
In 2013, 416 organizations were awarded one by one grants from the 2,668 charitable organizations that applied. Among the recipients: 53 community causes near 4imprint headquarters in Oshkosh, Wis., including four recommended by associates who use paid volunteer time to support the organizations as well. An additional 1,720 applicants, fundraising organizations, charities and troops over seas received donated product samples to help in their efforts.
Any U.S. 501(c)3 organization, registered Canadian charity, school or religious organization can submit applications a minimum of two months before the items are needed, allowing time for applications to be processed and products to be delivered for scheduled events. Apply online for a 2014 one by one grant at https://onebyone.4imprint.com.
