4imprint Makes $127,000 Difference with one by one™ Program
(OSHKOSH, Wis.) – The best time to give is when others need it most. During 2009, a year of economic trepidation and tightened funding for many nonprofit organizations, promotional products retailer 4imprint contributed to the sustainability and growth of 254 charities, donating $127,000 in-kind via its one by one™ philanthropic giving program.
For every business day of the year, 4imprint donated $500 worth of promotional products to deserving U.S. and Canadian charities. More than 1,780 one by one™ applications were submitted for the 2009 grants. In addition to the 254 grant recipients, 4imprint awarded another 754 nonprofits with sample-product donations and offered a minimum 10 percent discount to organizations that applied but did not receive the grant.
4imprint’s one by one™ program marked its fourth year of success in 2009, offering in-kind donations to help eligible charities in boosting awareness for their organizations, reaching customers, promoting events, thanking key audiences and much more.
“The one by one™ program helps nonprofits stretch their budgets and make more out of the resources they have,” explains Kevin Lyons-Tarr, 4imprint president. “We’re just happy to be a part of the great work they’re doing every day.”
The promotional products retailer also reached out to its local communities over the past year, awarding 48 donations to nonprofits in the immediate surrounding area of its headquarters in Oshkosh, Wis.
4imprint is currently accepting applications for its 2010 one by one™ program online at http://onebyone.4imprint.com. Any 501(c) 3 organization, registered Canadian charity, school or religious organizations are encouraged to apply. Interested organizations are asked that applications be submitted a minimum of 2 months before items will be needed for use.
