4imprint Awards 222 First Quarter Promotional Products Grants
Distributor 4imprint (UPIC: 4imprint) has presented more than 200 charitable organizations in the U.S. and Canada with promotional products grants to support awareness, fundraising, volunteer recruitment and retention, education and betterment projects in the first quarter of 2016 as part of its one by one program.
The in-kind gifts are the first announced under the Oshkosh, Wisconsin-based company’s expanded one by one charitable program, which now awards two organizations with $500 promotional product grants each business day.
“One of my favorite things is seeing one by one recipients use promotional products to accomplish goals,” says Kevin Lyons-Tarr, CEO of 4imprint. “They’re doing incredible work—often on shoestring budgets—so it’s fun to see promotional products give them a little extra edge with donors, volunteers and program participants.”
First-quarter grant recipients include The Humane Society of Greater Kansas City, which ordered imprinted round reflector lights to put on pet collars to encourage their clients to walk their dogs; Also-Known-As, Inc., a nonprofit that reconnects international adoptees to their cultures through cooking, ordered logoed aprons to commemorate its 20th anniversary; and The Community Healthcare Network used imprinted vivid color measure-up cup sets to help individuals living with diabetes improve their health. 4imprint also donated product samples to organizations doing charitable work in the U.S. and Canada as well as troops overseas.
Since 2006, 4imprint’s one by one program has supported nonprofits with IRS-approved 501(c)3 status or Canadian-registered charities, religious organizations and accredited schools. Over the program’s history, the promotional products retailer has awarded $2,216,000 in promotional products grants to nonprofit organizations.
