If your team leadership has decided that it’s time to raise money for your organization, you may be charged with coming up with fundraising ideas for the group. Of course, there are many options for fundraising, but they don’t all fit every organization or cause. Here at Bricks R Us, we are proud of our Finished Brick Pavers — which have been utilized by a number of nonprofit and civic groups for fundraising purposes.
When people think of bricks, they think of plain, red blocks that make up the chimney or wall of a house. But there’s a lot more you can do with a brick!
At Bricks R Us, our finished brick pavers aren’t just plain, square-cut blocks. Known as the “pretty bricks,” finished brick pavers have beveled edges, smooth surfaces, and “spacers” to help your crew set the bricks evenly in a convenient sand base. Finished brick pavers are our most popular brick.
- 4 inches by 8 inches across, by 2.25 inches deep
- 8 inches by 8 inches across, by 2.25 inches deep
Although red is still the most popular color, we have 12 other shades that any fundraiser will find intriguing including: Ivory, Mulberry, Majestic, Dark Antique, and Sunset Red. Hover over any color for a close up look at the brick’s surface.
Combine different sizes and colors of bricks
Although some groups choose to build an entire plaza of 4×8 finished brick pavers, other groups enjoy mixing up colors, sizes, and even textures in order to create their display. Here are some examples:
- Use a lighter color brick in the center of a dark brick display to form a symbol or initial.
- Edge a concrete sidewalk with a double or triple row of bricks to beautify a space and give it new meaning.
- Edge a red brick walkway with a different color or size of brick — these should probably go for a higher donation rate!
Charges for a finished brick paver include the cost of the brick (depending on the size), engraving, and shipping inside the Continental United States.
