Prideraiser Merch Information
🆕 New for 2022, visit the Prideraiser Merch Store to place all orders. And, for the first time ever, scarves will be made available directly to fans- check back on May 20.
While Prideraiser has merch available to promote your Prideraiser campaign, we are not in the merch business. From time to time, merch is made available, at our cost plus a small markup to pay for server/SMS costs, to the organizers of our local campaigns for further distribution to the public in ways that suit the needs of each campaign. Of note, the preferred method to raise funds for a local organization is the Prideraiser pledge model, not from merch sales.
Approved Prideraiser merch distribution methods include:
- Visual promotion by campaign admins/capos/social media
- Selling at a markup and donating the profit to a LGBTQ beneficiary
- As a gift for high-dollar or other donors or partners
(Ask if you have another idea.)
Prideraiser merch can be requested by visiting the Prideraiser Merch Store.
Bulk Merchandise Requests
In certain circumstances, SGs may request bulk orders of 25+ printed scarves and/or 50+ knit scarves (the minimums set by our supplier, subject to change) to be used within the guidelines of this merch policy. Bulk orders will be shipped directly to your SG at a cost per unit lower than the wholesale or retail price. Reach out to a Prideraiser volunteer on Slack if your SG would like to make a special bulk order request and we will try to accomodate it.
Supporters Group Co-Branded Merchandise
Prideraiser may supply graphics and allow partner SGs to make their own co-branded merchandise to be sold as a fundraiser for your Prideraiser charity partner. Perfunctory approval of the design by the Prideraiser admin team is required. However, we recommend against this approach without careful consideration of the logistical and budgetary challenges. In short, it’s bitten us in the butt before, and we don’t want our partner SGs to over-extend themselves and have a bad experience with Prideraiser.
Prideraiser Merch Store
🆕 New for 2022, visit the Prideraiser Merch Store to place all orders. Supporters groups organizing a local Prideraiser campaign will have early access to the store to purchase items at reduced wholesale pricing, to be used according to the Prideraiser.org Merch Policy. Fans may purchase Prideraiser merch directly from the Prideraiser.org merch store, but may prefer to check with their local supporters group first, as merch acquired from SGs may be at a different price or with proceeds benefiting a local campaign beneficiary. Proceeds from the sale of Prideraiser merchandise are used to cover some of the costs incurred in operating Prideraiser.org. Your purchase is not a tax-deductible donation.
