Bethesda, Md. (March 5, 2015) – The de Chantal Dukes have found a new way to help family and fans purchase school spirit custom apparel while raising money for the school. After a few months partnering with Rokkitwear, an athletic apparel company, St. Jane de Chantal Catholic School has raised more than $1,600.
Typically, school fundraisers have included raffles, events and a lot of upfront work and expense. In particular, managing the inventory required to sell apparel and other branded items was always difficult and costly. But now, Rokkitwear guarantees a minimum of 15% of all spirit wear revenue to the school.
St. Jane de Chantal decided to switch gears and work with Rokkitwear after learning about them online. Rokkitwear is a unique e-commerce platform that takes the burden and expense of inventory and sales off the schools with a program that is offered at no cost to the school.
Now, Rokkitwear handles everything. Customers can choose from thousands of designs using the official De Chantal logos. And Rokkitwear accepts single piece, on-demand orders. Local fans just need to visit www.dechantal.org and follow the link to the Spirit Wear store to order everything from sweatshirts and t-shirts to outerwear and performance wear. Orders are filled and shipped within five days.
So far, the response has been great and the school looks forward to continued success.
Susan Myers, President of the Home and School Association, said, “People love the designs, the number of items to choose from and the great color options.”
Rokkitwear is an official provider of high school apparel licensed by the Licensing Resource Group and National Federation of State High School Associations. As the first officially licensed online spirit wear provider recognized by the NFSH and LRG, Rokkitwear guarantees a royalty payment to each school on every sale of such school’s spirit wear. Through rokkitwear.com, the company’s state-of-the-art e-commerce storefront, Rokkitwear is helping schools, booster clubs, organizations and sports teams raise additional needed funds while managing and administering school spirit wear programs.
