How charities can use promotional products
Friday, 26, Aug 2011 11:01
By their very nature, charities perform a range of good deeds, from providing food to the world's poorest people to encouraging children to read.
Such efforts typically require significant financial backing and as they are often reliant on public and corporate donations, charities should always consider the most effective ways of raising funds for their cause.
One means of attracting donors is by using promotional products, and by coming to 4imprint you can get a wide range of printed items featuring your charity's name, logo and other details at fantastic prices.
Using branded items for your charitable organisation
Regardless of the size of your charity or the reasons why you are looking to raise money, promotional gifts printed with your logo, charity name or particular cause can be a great way of boosting awareness.
Whether you're launching a special campaign or initiative or simply wish to remind people of the work you do, these products can prove to be an effective marketing tool.
Indeed, you might want to put contact details for your charity on to your goods in order to provide an easy way for potential donors to get in touch and make a donation.
Alternatively, if you have face-to-face fundraisers who encourage shoppers on the high street to become regular donors or your charity raises money by selling second-hand goods or is lobbying at a festival or some other event, it may be a good idea to invest in promotional clothing for volunteers and staff.
If volunteers and staff wear printed T-shirts, it will be easier for members of the public to recognise your organisation and cause; furthermore it may give them the reassurance to donate money to your cause.
Of course, it is just as important for charities to retain existing donors as attract new ones, particularly in the current economic climate.
As a way of showing supporters that you appreciate their efforts and are keen for them to continue to give, why not send them a gift as a token of thanks? This could include anything from pens to bookmarks - and with your charity's name and logo on it, the recipient should be reminded of the work you do.
