Over the course of F.I.I.’s five-year partnership with the organization — which continues to expand — they’ve taken advantage of nearly every one of our merch and logistics services.
Jewish women are pioneers of labor unions in the United States, so it only makes sense that the NCJW so deeply values our ethical merch to outfit their modern-day activists and grow their supporter base.
Revenue Generation Through an Ecommerce Platform
The first project we completed for the NCJW was standing up an ecommerce store. Not only did we build the web store on the nonprofit’s behalf, we also sourced the wide variety of U.S.-made, ethical merch available for purchase. As with all of our products, this merch amplifies the nonprofit’s brand message.
The array of products — from crewnecks to fanny packs — feature the NCJW’s branding as well as messages specific to the organization’s various causes. And the merch rotates as the causes do. Supporters who purchase the merch are walking advertisements for the nonprofit’s important projects, and of course, they’re also helping to fund the critical work of the organization.
Making Merch Delivery Logistics Look Easy
We strategically centralized the inventory for the NCJW’s store in an ecommerce warehouse. We leverage this existing warehouse model to efficiently and accurately distribute NCJW merchandise to members and affiliates, as well as to synagogues and college campus Hillel centers.
Speaking of hairy logistical details, F.I.I. supported another recent NCJW campaign that engaged members across the country. The organization needed a poster and sticker pack (a gift box) delivered to every eligible recipient in time for Rosh Hashanah. By the numbers, 12 pieces of merch needed to be packaged and shipped to 500 different addresses. The F.I.I. team delivered all 6,000 items, on time and without a single error.
Merch Incentives Build Lists and Garner Online Donations
F.I.I. also developed smart merch incentive programs for NCJW. Combining social media ads with cool stickers used as merch incentives, the organization was able to raise funds and gather new contact info to grow their list. NCJW simply sent us the list of campaign donors, and F.I.I. took care of all the fulfillment.
