For over four decades, cultural organizations across the U.S. have been raising funds by giving their donors and visitors a unique keepsake that they can take home as a token of remembrance. They use their custom keepsakes as a way to generate revenue, increase donations, raise awareness, commemorate special events or anniversaries, and thank their donors, employees, and volunteers. Each year, these organizations return to create a new annual keepsake program by creating another meaningful design that helps them to highlight what’s unique about their organization. These annuity programs have ultimately helped organizations to build annual collectors who continue to support their mission year after year.
With some many meaningful ideas within this broad industry, the design concepts are endless, but here are some common ideas to help you get started: Unique artifact(s), buildings, statues, photographs, logo, iconic event in history, a well-known figure, etc.
We have the honor of partnering with hundreds of both big and small organizations each year. Here are just a few you may be familiar with: Smithsonian, National Corvette Museum, Polynesian Cultural Center, Virginia Museum of History & Culture, National Baseball Hall of Fame, George Washington Masonic National Memorial, National World War II Museum, Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, The MET, and so many more!
