Promotional Merchandise for Charities

Charities can only help people if they receive enough fundraising so brand awareness is vital. Promotional products work really well for charities as they can help to raise the profile of the charity and keep it in the mind of donors.

A great way for charities to raise the money they need is to fundraise by selling promotional products. Fundraising with branded merchandise works really well as donors feel they’re supporting the cause not only with their donation but also by helping to expose the charity further each time they re-use the branded product.

As cost is vital, here we’ve collated our favourite promotional items that don't cost a fortune but promise to build on brand awareness to support your charity.

Sweet Cups

Promotional sweet buckets are really popular with charities who support events such as marathons, triathlons and fitness events. Thank competitors who have raised vital funds for your charity with a well-deserved sugar rush. These little branded pots provide just enough to satisfy a sweet tooth!
