With both Earth Day and Arbor Day falling in April, it’s a good month to enjoy and support your community’s parks.
But not all parks are created equal. Some communities find their parks lacking and in need of improvements and expansion. That’s where a brick fundraising project can come in. Here at Bricks R Us, a brick engraving company, we’ve been helping clients with fundraising projects for more than 27 years. We love to see projects being used to help fund community parks and recreation projects.
An engraved brick project can be used to fund a variety of needed items for parks, including:
- Land purchase and development for use as a public park
- Purchase of playground equipment and accessories
- Landscaping design and services
- Covered pavilions and picnic areas
- Restroom facilities
- Fencing and gates
- Development of nature trails and walking paths
As you can see, there is no end to the ideas for parks and park improvements that can be funded through an engraved brick project. It’s really a perfect fit.
An engraved brick fundraiser can allow members of the community to show their support for the park. Supporters can have their names engraved on the bricks which can then be used to create a brick entranceway, a brick memorial wall, brick courtyard or brick path at the park. This will be a lasting tribute and memorial to those who helped to make the park and improvements possible.
To help generate extra buzz and success for your parks project, consider tying your fundraising project into Earth Day or Arbor Day. You could use environmentally friendly products and equipment to help furnish your park and host a tree planting ceremony once the park is ready to open. For more ideas, see the infographic here.
