4imprint Donates $46,000 In-Kind to Charities in Third Quarter
Promotional products retailer 4imprint multiplied the momentum of its one by one(R) charitable giving program in the third quarter, awarding a total of $46,000 in in-kind grants to 92 U.S. and Canadian charities.
Through one by one(R), the Oshkosh, Wis.-based company awards $500 in imprinted products each business day to eligible non-profit organizations. The organizations use these promotional products to build awareness, raise money, thank volunteers or provide for those in need, effectively multiplying their impact far beyond their $500 value.
A downturn in the economy makes these grants all the more important.
"We know that non-profit organizations feel the pinch when times get tough. Demand for services may rise while donations may fall off," said Kevin Lyons-Tarr, 4imprint president. "We hope these in-kind grants help ease that strain so these wonderful organizations can continue do the critical work they do."
