Every business day, distributor 4imprint awards two $500 in-kind promotional products grants through its one by one charitable program to help a wide variety of organizations raise funds, reward and recruit volunteers, educate the community and raise awareness of the good work they do. During this year’s third quarter, the Oshkosh, Wisconsin-based company awarded grants to 206 charitable organizations.

“It is both heartwarming and inspirational to see the creative new ways non-profit organizations are making a difference in the lives of others,” says CEO Kevin Lyons-Tarr. “For each of these one by one recipient organizations, promotional products have served a valuable role in spreading the word about their organization, raising much needed funds or just opening the door to conversation. one by one recipients are using promotional items to start the conversations that make their good work possible.”


Among the third-quarter grant recipients:

  • Mission Services of Hamilton, Ontario, received a supply of custom seed packets as a thank-you and takeaway gift for attendees of the Violence Against Women Shelter—Inasmuch House 50th anniversary dinner.
  • ATRA, Airedale Terrier Rescue and Adoption of Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, selected custom pet tags, sticky notes and power clips as thank-you gifts for its volunteers.
  • NC Therapeutic Riding Center chose stuffed animals in custom printed apparel as gifts for its youth clients with disabilities.

In addition, 4imprint donated product samples to organizations doing charitable work in the United States and Canada, as well as to troops overseas. Since the charitable giving program was started in 2006, it has benefited more than 5,000 nonprofit organizations. See a full list of the 2017 third-quarter recipients here
