Getting Started

Here’s how it works

Your school needs to build a new playground, for example, and you are placed in charge of fundraising for the project. After consulting with the architect or designer, you decide that selling engraved donor bricks will be the best means to achieve your goals. The bricks become the actual material of the pathways winding through the playground. The money raised supports the construction. Your donors buy the bricks as a connection to your project. There is a sense of ownership in the new playground. There is also the option for businesses to support it with a permanent public recognition — a win-win situation!

Organization

Assemble your team and assign duties to team members. Generate interest in your project, create brochures and order forms. Use our fundraising guide to assist you in getting started with these tasks. As you sell the bricks, you input the donor and inscription information into our exclusive project management system, BrixBase. When all of your donors and their inscriptions are recorded, Brixbase creates the lists we use to engrave your bricks. Once engraved, the bricks are hand-painted with a high quality and extremely durable paint. The bricks are carefully packed and shipped to your job site to be installed in your new playground.

Here are a few tools to help you start your campaign.
