A printer can help to raise both funds and awareness alike (2017/12/12)

Not-for-profit organizations serve an important purpose in their communities. They provide support and assistance to people in need, offer community programming and improve the overall quality of life for many people. These groups usually depend on donations and other funding from the public, and a well-crafted fundraising event can help them to help even more. A local printing company will be able to assist them in their efforts.

When planning a fundraiser, it makes sense to consider the time of year. For instance, April is Autism Awareness Month, so this would be a good time of year for a group that helps people with an autism spectrum disorder to host an event. Once the date has been chosen, it’s time to select promotional products that will help to market the event to the public, and also ones that can be used as “swag” during the function itself.

A printing services provider will have lots of small items that can be handed out during a fundraising event, making it easy for an organization to find one that is a good match for its needs and budget. One thing to keep in mind is that if an item is helpful to a person, they will be more likely to use it, and this greatly increases its promotional power. Customized awareness bracelets, car magnets, portable cellphone chargers, and clothing that has been printed with a not-for-profit’s logo or other branding can all be good choices that are likely to be appreciated and used by the recipient.

In the not-for-profit world, marketing is about more than just raising money; it’s also about raising awareness. Printing companies can offer a full selection of items that can be customized to suit almost any funding campaign.
