Promotional Products Retailer 4imprint® Charitable Giving Tops $200,000 in 2012
(OSHKOSH, Wis.) –4imprint donated $201,000 in promotional items through its one by one®charitable giving program in 2012. The one by one program is just one way promotional products retailer 4imprint gives back as it sets out to give at least one $500 grant to one organization each business day. The program donates in-kind gifts to charitable causes throughout the United States and Canada as well as to troops stationed overseas.
The one by one program helped a wide range of organizations in the last year, providing unique products branded for their cause. From backpacks for an orphanage in Texas or easy-to-grab mugs for a guide dog training organization in New York, all one by one recipients used their promotional products to make an impact.
“The organizations that benefit from these donations are doing incredible work,” notes 4imprint president Kevin Lyons-Tarr. “We’re inspired by the important work they do and honored to play a small part in their marketing, team-building and outreach efforts.”
In 2012, charitable organizations submitted more than 2,425 one by one applications, with 402 organizations receiving $500 worth of product donations. Recipients included 52 community causes near 4imprint’s headquarters in Oshkosh, Wis. Additionally, 4imprint donated 1,559 product samples to help other applicants with their efforts. As 2012 closed, the one by one program approached nearly $1,000,000 in charitable gifts since its 2005 launch.
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 in time for scheduled events.
