Engraved brick projects are the perfect solutions when you’re fundraising for hospitals and medical centers.
Not only is it an easy fundraiser that can help generate funds for needed projects, but it’s also a great way to allow the public to show their support for the work hospitals do in saving lives.
As a brick engraving company, we at Bricks R Us enjoy helping our clients find success with fundraisers. We’ve worked with hospitals, schools, colleges and others in creating specific engraved brick fundraising projects. We’re happy to share our knowledge and experience in the fundraising field with our clients and readers of our blog.
A great way to enlist public support for your campaign is to build it around a certain health topic or issue. For example, February is American Hearth Month, dedicated to raising awareness about heart disease and how people can prevent it. With one in four deaths caused by heart disease, it’s the leading cause of death for men and women in America. Take advantage of this type of national focus to help launch your campaign.
Focus on a Specific Project
People like to know what their donation is being used for so be specific about how the funds raised will be spent. Are you building a new maternity wing, a cardio wing, an Alzheimer’s care unit or parking garage? Be sure to include the focus in your marketing materials. It can help increase community support and donations.
Make it Public
Don’t hide your project way inside the hospital on an empty wall that gets little traffic. Look for ways to incorporate your project into public spaces at your hospital or medical center. Consider a brick courtyard at your entrance or a brick walkway leading from the parking lot. Everyone will see it as they enter and exit your building.
Build in Phases
You can build your engraved brick project in phases. Use a mix of regular bricks and engraved bricks to space it out for your first phase. Then fill in the sides and replace blank bricks as your project continues and expands.
