Fund Raiser Challenge Coins

Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

Fund raisers help businesses, schools, churches, non-profit organizations, and clubs solicit donations for worthy causes.  We can make your event that much more successful through the creation and sales of custom challenge coins.  Few mementos get the type of reaction that custom coins get.  In fact, they’ve been a symbol of hope, pride, and recognition since World War I.

Custom fundraiser coins grab people’s attention and get them interested in what you have to offer.  People are more apt to purchase a coin if they know the proceeds are going to help a good cause.  If you want to boost your fundraising effort this year, you can do so easily with custom challenge coins.

We create coins in all sizes, shapes, styles, and colors.  Here are a few of the ways you can make your order of fundraising challenge coins stand out in a crowd:

Creating Custom Challenge Coins to Help Disaster Victims

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Disasters strike when they’re least expected.  Take the recent onslaught of wildfires plaguing Colorado.  Disaster relief efforts are needed to help communities rebuild.  One of the fastest and most successful ways to raise funds for families in your neighborhood and city is by creating custom lapel pins to sell to others.  Part or all of the proceeds can be used to help rebuild homes as well as provide medical care, clothing, and necessary services to families.

Custom challenge coins make the perfect fundraising item for a number of different reasons.  First and foremost, the coins are durable and long lasting.  They are not the type of item that gets easily destroyed and thrown away.

Next, custom coins are personal.  They have emblems, images, and messages incorporated in their designs.  This allows the purchaser of the coin to know where it came from and what was done to help others in need.  It also can provide the purchaser with additional contact information like an email address, phone number or website URL.

Last but not least, custom challenge coins are meaningful.  Since World War I, challenge coins have been used to honor exceptional individuals.  Imagine how grateful your customers will feel that they can be part of an age old tradition.  Custom challenge coins are highly regarded because of their close military ties.

Golden West Humanitarian Foundation Commissions Custom Challenge Coin to Help with Fundraising

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

The Golden West Humanitarian Foundation has a mission. They want to safeguard the lives and livelihoods of men, women and children residing in areas contaminated with landmines and unexploded ordnance. They do just that through the development of innovative and practical materials and technologies designed to combat life-threatening munitions. Through the values of innovation, forethought, partnership, appropriateness, impact, and affordability, the foundation is successful.

The challenge coin featured in this blog was made with fundraising in mind. Groups and foundations like the one mentioned above need money in order to operate. The main source of funding that they receive comes from private donations. These coins are given to individuals or companies that contribute a certain amount of time and money year in and year out to a cause. The thank you gifts are impressive and help secure future donations.

Challenge coins are meaningful and valued by anyone who receives one. They are not discarded like certificates or other types of paper awards. Many recipients of challenge coins proudly display them in a prominent location like a display case in their home or in their office on a desk or bookshelf. This allows others to see their award and also gives them a safe place to store their collectible.

By including the website on the actual coin, the donor can easily get back in touch with the foundation the next time he/she would like to make a donation. This is a plus for the charity or organization in question. Information like this is important and can be included on either the front or the back side of the challenge coin.

Three of the quadrants featured on one of the sides of the custom coin shows areas that the foundation focuses on. The other side of the coin has the foundation logo stamped proudly in the center with the website wrapped neatly around the bottom of the coin. Details like this make the award relevant and meaningful. That’s what makes custom made products so spectacular. They reflect the personality and values of the groups and foundations that create them.

Custom Challenge Coins Designed to Raise Money for ALS Make Great Fundraisers

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a form of motor neuron disease.  It is caused by the degeneration of neurons located in the ventral horn of the spinal cord and the cortical neurons that provide their afferent input. The condition is often called Lou Gehrig’s disease in North America because the famous New York Yankees baseball player was diagnosed with it in 1939.

Challenge Coins For Donations

Custom challenge coins designed to raise money to fight ALS are often sold at fundraisers.  People wanting to show support for a charity or non-profit purchase the coins in lieu of giving a donation.  The group sponsoring the event then dictates how much of a profit it needs to successfully provide services to the people suffering from Lou Gehrig’s disease as well as their families.

High Perceived Value Makes Coins Desirable

Because the cost is low compared to the perceived value of the coins, these items are ideal for fundraising.  The more custom coins your group purchases, the less the price per coin costs.  This helps maximize your profits and make your fundraising attempts very successful.

A Logo or a Motto Helps Others Get to Know Your Group or Organization

Fundraising coins are also great because they can represent the foundation you are trying to help by incorporating the national logo or motto of the coins as well as the foundation’s official colors.  This helps people recognize your group and acknowledge the efforts that you have been making to support people with ALS.  If you want to make a bold statement, custom challenge coins are the way to go.

Sequential Numbering Increases Collectible Nature of Custom Coins

Other great fundraising coins we have done in past were sequentially numbered so that you could create a since of exclusivity and urgency for your donors to act because there are only x amount of coins that will be made.  People respond well to “collector’s items”.  Because the coins are limited, many members of your community will want to get their hands on one.
