This presentation is about how Custom Tile by XThings helps nonprofits accomplish their missions by creating fundraising murals. It explains the process and has examples of murals we have done.

Helping nonprofits with Fundraising Murals

Who We Are  Started in 2006  Was originally a side project making tile murals and accent tiles for homes and businesses  In 2009 a nonprofit approached us with the idea and in 2010 we did a few tile murals recognizing their donors  In 2013 a nonprofit consultant suggested we focus on not only making murals for nonprofits but also on raising the money for the nonprofits by getting sponsors for all of the

How It All Works  A nonprofit determines they need a certain amount of money for something  That amount determines how big the mural will need to be  For example, a nonprofit needs $50,000 to renovate part of their building  That means we need to plan a 100 square feet mural, composed of 100 12inch by 12inch tiles

How It All Works (continued)  We work with the nonprofit to raise $62,500  The money is collected by the nonprofit and then they pay Custom Tile  Custom Tile does not directly collect any money  The nonprofit keeps at least 80% of the proceeds – in our example $50,000

Some Examples This mural was done for a Meals on Wheels. In the Close-up shot on the next slide you can barely make out the sponsor names. In the extreme close-up on the slide after that you can easily see the sponsor names.

What If We Don’t Raise All The Money?  In our example the nonprofit needed $50,000 so we needed to raise $62,500 to maintain the 80% kept by the nonprofit that we want  If there was only enough interest to raise $50,000 we resize the mural to 80 tiles instead of 100, reducing the cost so the 80% is maintained  If more money is raised the mural size can be increased or a second mural can be created

Designed to be Low Risk  Ways we have designed the process to be low risk:  Money goes directly to nonprofit and then they pay Custom Tile  Mural is scaled to amount of money raised to keep 80% of money going to the nonprofit  80% of money going to the nonprofit is VERY high  Many fundraising companies keep 50% of the money raised.
