American Legion Post 690 in Palatine, IL is the first to kick off their local post fundraiser utilizing Nonprofit Nest, a Concierge Fundraising company that supports all 501c Non-Profit and Charitable entities. Exclusively for the American Legion offering customized Local Post T-Shirts and Sweatshirts made from 100% American materials. By offering these customized apparel items to their members, each Post can now add a personalized touch to their fundraising efforts. With the purchase of these shirts, 23% of all proceeds will go directly back to the Post.
In addition to providing a unique fundraiser idea, Nonprofit Nest makes the process incredibly easy and stress-free for each Legion Post that decides to participate. The unique selling point of this program is that it doesn’t just run for one month or have an end date; it’s an ongoing initiative throughout the year. Nonprofit Nest handles everything, from creating an online store with custom designs specific to each post, taking orders and payments, printing the apparel and then shipping them directly to customers’ homes or businesses. Once all items are sold for that month, Nonprofit Nest then sends out a check directly to each Post for its portion of proceeds. This eliminates all the stress involved in fundraising which allows more time for the Post to focus on their individual projects.
“We selected Nonprofit Nest to run our fundraiser because it was easy. We didn’t have to pay anything upfront or store bulk buy shirts in bins like we used to. Nonprofit Nest offered an effective way for any American Legion Posts such as our Post to fundraise without having to worry about any extra hassles. It’s a no brainer” said Tom Seick, Post 690 Liaison. “Our members loved the quality of the items and that they had something custom for our Post. Our Executive Board loved that each item was made in America and that we can run this fundraiser with funds coming in each month all year long.”
