Promotional products retailer 4imprint donated $57,000 in in-kind grants during the second quarter of 2014. A total of 114 nonprofits and charities across the United States and Canada received promotional products grants through the promotional products distributor’s one by one® charitable giving program, which awards an in-kind gift to a nonprofit organization every business day. Among the donations: water bottles for the Limestone Cove Volunteer Fire Department in Unicoi, Tennessee and safety vests used for an event with the Niagara Falls Sunrise Rotary Club in Ontario.
Recipient organizations use $500 grants to purchase promotional products that help them generate awareness for their organizations, reach customers, promote events and thank key audiences. In addition to supporting these grant recipients, 4imprint also donates product samples to other charitable organizations to help advance their causes.
“It’s amazing to see the creativity these organizations use to spread the word about the important work they do,” said Kevin Lyons-Tarr, president and CEO, 4imprint. “Whether it’s through one by one grants or product sample donations, we are thrilled to play even a small role in helping them do good things in their communities.”

Any 501(c) 3 organization, registered Canadian charity, school or religious organization is encouraged to apply.

The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...
