Why is it important for shelters to merchandise?

Selling merchandise certainly isn't a substitute for charitable donations, however, it can accentuate donations and provide an alternative method to funding shelter and rescue organizations.

  • Selling Merchandise gives donors something tangible in return
  • By offering a variety of different items a wider range of supporters can be appealed to
  • Branded merchandise can serve as an advertisement for the shelter or rescue
  • Merchandise can serve as a way to stimulate donations and encourage donations
