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.
4imprint is a major sponsor of the Oshkosh-based Wisconsin Herd, the NBA G League affiliate of the Milwaukee Bucks NBA team. The recent establishment of the team and construction of an arena in Oshkosh was a significant achievement for the local community, and we were pleased to help not only financially but also through donation of uniforms for employees, promotional items and support for other special events.
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 2018, there were 3,662 applicants, with 1,076 grants awarded. The total value of “one by one®” grants awarded was more than $500,000.
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 good causes.
