Project Details

What We Need
  • Final designs for a predetermined type of promotional apparel (e.g., t-shirts, hats, shorts, other swag) or merchandise (mugs, pens, tote bags, etc.) provided in the high-resolution format of the Organization's choice
  • Note: Printing and vendor sourcing is not included
Additional Details

We are starting a new volunteer appreciation program for our GIFT program. We need help designing a collectable pin that will represent one of the GIFT Grants we are able to award because members from the community volunteered a significant amount at our bingo fundraiser that makes these grants possible. We also need to design a lanyard so volunteers can collect and wear their pins while volunteering to also help connect the fundraiser to the non-profit and public school community it supports.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have the concept for these items and are ready to go, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have the art specifications from the vendor for these items, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $5,422 , allowing us to invest in our COACH program which supports people with intellectual & developmental disabilities who want to volunteer in the community in an inclusive way.

It is important for our volunteers to be able to see the impact of the time they invest at our bingo fundraiser. Every 4 months we award between $50,000 to $100,000 in GIFT Grants to local public school and nonprofit organizations that serve individuals on the VA Peninsula. Their efforts make this investment in the community possible.
