The Electrical Industries Charity has designed a new fundraising platform providing an easy and fun way to fundraise, ‘One brick at a time’.

sidebar bricksRaise the Roof, is a great new concept which provides all our individual fundraisers with a unique opportunity to raise funds with an engraved brick to inspire supporters as an alternative way to attract donations to our worthy cause.

Not only is selling personalised bricks incredibly fun, it’s a permanent way to thank sponsors for their donations and a proven way to generate vital funds. Whether you want to commemorate an individual or personalise your bricks with the names of your donors and sponsors, there’s no other fundraising method that provides such an emotional connection between our projects and our donors.

Our Challenge for a Cause, the Caz Dickinson fundraising appeal requires a house to be built to cater for Caz’s unique long-term needs and a home for the family too. You can help us raise the roof for Caz and her family with a personalized brick that allows our donors to literally put their names on this very special project. This means that our engraved bricks will serve as long lasting tributes to you, your sponsors and donors and your engraving will stay intact as long as the brick does.

Best of all, engraved bricks create a way to show current and potential donors visible and measureable fundraising success.

The power of brick fundraising campaigns?

Our raise the roof campaign helps support the emotional attachment our donors have to our cause and the personalised brick engraving acts as a tangible reward, encouraging many more supporters to give to our fundraising challenge.

Engraving your name into stone isn’t a modern concept. Throughout history, humans have felt the need and desire to leave some form of legacy by carving names and images into rock. When our donors buy a brick they’re making a proud community statement and publicly declaring that they’ve donated to our cause giving an overwhelming positive feeling for everyone involved.

So why not get involved and help raise the roof on our good cause’s just one brick at a time.
