Raising money with a brick campaign is often embraced by donors to solidify a special memory for themselves or loved ones. All of us want to be recognized and remembered, and brick campaigns allow donors to support their favorite organizations while telling their story to the public.
Schools – Brick campaigns will suit both private and public schools. An engraved brick paver is even more special for high school seniors. Graduating from high school is probably the biggest moment in their lives so far, so buying a senior class brick paver for the school grounds allows graduates to tell their high school story before moving on.
Museums – You can always find museums with a number of constituents to support a brick campaign. These might include:
- Donors – After being a regular supporter of the museum for multiple years, or even decades, a major donor would definitely appreciate being remembered in a brick display on the property.
- Volunteers – Most museums have a core group of loyal volunteers. Oftentimes, these individuals have been around for many years and would also appreciate a brick.
- Affinity Groups – These folks have a connection to a particular museum or the items in the collection. At the Air Force Museum, bricks are purchased by members of the Air Force, retirees and family members of deceased members of the Air Force. At a local history museum, a history teacher might buy a brick because he supports a cause. A retired bus driver might choose to have his story told with a brick at a regional transportation museum.
Faith-Based Institution – Most people have very strong, long-time connections with their church, mosque, temple or synagogue. It’s where they were raised or where they raised their children. If your grandparents or great-grandparents were founding members of your church, you might want to create an engraved brick paver in their memory with the date of when they joined the church.
College and University – The majority of college graduates remember their university days with fondness. Many alumni would be happy to purchase an engraved brick paver to permanently mark their days at their alma mater, including membership in a on-campus organization, fraternity, sorority, or sports team.
