The Future of Fundraising: How Smart Non-Profits Like CADCA are Raising Funds with Custom Apparel StorefrontsCategory: Storefronts
Just this month we unveiled our Customized Girl Storefront Program and we already have over 200 storefronts! We couldn’t be more thrilled with all of our storefront owners’ designs and the work they put into it their stores!
To celebrate and honor the hard work of our storefront owners, we will be featuring one Customized Girl storefront owner a month in a blog post dedicated to them and their designs! This month’s featured storefront owner is The Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America!
“Since 1992, CADCA has demonstrated that when all sectors of a community come together —social change happens. CADCA is the premier membership organization representing those working to make their communities safe, healthy and drug-free. We have members in every U.S. state and territory and working in 18 countries around the world.”
The CADCA Storefront was created so that the organization can sell tees and accessories printed with their designs as a fundraising effort.
When you purchase a CADCA tee from their storefront, they earn a royalty from the sale. That royalty is going towards the organization’s efforts to create drug-free communities across the world.
Customized Girl Storefronts are an easy way to raise funds for any non-profit organization. There are absolutely no start-up costs to open a storefront, nor will you ever pay a fee to maintain your storefront. Simply design the tees, tanks, sweatshirts, and accessories you’d like to sell for your organization, promote your storefront to volunteers and supporters, and collect the royalty earnings to use for upcoming events or general fundraising needs.
A storefront with Customized Girl is especially useful to non-profits for several reasons:
-Customized Girl offers full color printing. We can print a variety of colors that are in your logo or design. CADCA is taking advantage of our full color printing with their beautiful, colorful designs. Screen printers charge extra for each color, so if you wanted to place orders of smaller batches with this many colors, it simply wouldn’t be economical feasible. But we use state-of-the-art, direct-to-garment digital printers. And we can make it happen! Full color and no minimums.
-In a Customized Girl Storefront you can sequence designs. That is, move specific designs to the top of your page for upcoming events like 5k’s or specific community events.
-Your designs are always there, unless you remove them. This makes it super easy to hide designs for those specific events after the event has ended and change information for the next year’s.
-You have total control over your designs. CADCA has saved their designs on each color shirt that they want members to choose from. It’s easy to keep on trend with your organization’s current themes or events.
-Customization. Maybe you are designing shirts for your organization’s upcoming 5k. Your volunteers and runners can quickly and easily customize a tee or tank or performance shirt from your storefront to add their name or a number.
-We offer a wide array of accessories too, not just shirts. Design and sell tote bags, water bottles, iPhone cases, aprons, and more for your non-profit organization!
