Getting Started

Here’s how it works

Your school needs to build a new playground, for example, and 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. Not only will they generate the funds needed to finance the project, the bricks become the actual material of the pathways winding through the playground. Engraved bricks also give members of the community a sense of ownership in the project. Local businesses can also have a permanent public recognition in your project — a win-win situation!

So, after researching fundraising with engraved bricks and pavers, you contact ENGRAVESTONE to get started.

You organize your fundraiser — assign duties to team members, generate interest in your project, create brochures and order forms. We have a fundraising guide that will 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 you have recorded all of your donors and their inscriptions, we create lists that 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.
