Community and Charitable Giving
Team members are given paid time off to be used specifically for volunteering for a local charity or non-profit organisation of their choice. 4imprint is actively involved in its local communities in many other ways, for example in team sponsorships, student scholarships at local colleges, product donations for events such as fun runs, 5Ks and marathons, and encouragement of team members to participate on volunteer boards and committees.
Our North American business operates its “one by one®” charitable giving programme which reflects our culture and principles. Each business day we donate at least three $500 grants to non-profit organisations. These grants are to be used on promotional products to help spread the word, recruit volunteers or thank donors. In 2016, there were 3,395 applicants, with 767 grants awarded. The total value of “one by one®” grants awarded was $385,000, and on top of this we made more than 2,000 other donations of product to “one by one®” applicants, businesses, team members and customers in support of fundraising or charitable causes.
Our UK business has its own charitable giving initiative, “Helping Hand”, which also aims to use the power of promotional products in the support of a good cause.
