The Franciscan Connection has teamed up with Cafepress.com to offer our benefactors a new way to donate to our organization. CafePress.com is an online marketplace that offers sellers complete e-commerce services to independently create and sell a wide variety of products.
The Franciscan Connection raises funds by marking up the price of merchandise over the base price decided by CafePress.com. CafePress.com's base prices cover product creation, customer service, transaction management, returns/exchanges and online shop maintenance. The markup price over the base price is the funds raised by the Franciscan Connection.
In addition to monetary benefits, people who wear merchandise with the Franciscan Connection are promoting our organization to those they come in contact with. They become our street team!
