CLEVELAND, OHIO (April 20, 2020) – Proforma is pleased to announce a free fundraising program for local organizations that need help or want to help their employees or community. Through Proforma’s proprietary online Popup stores, local organizations like restaurants, retailers, non-profits and more can sell branded merchandise to raise money.
A Proforma Affiliate Owner of Proforma Printing and Promotion, William M. Resnick, has already helped a local restaurant accomplish a fundraising effort to support and feed their surrounding community. Through Proforma’s Community Fundraising Program, Resnick was able to provide a free online fundraising store that resulted in over $6,000 in merchandise sales for the restaurant.
“It’s incredible to see the impact our Affiliate Owners are making with this program,” said Proforma Chief Executive Officer Vera Muzzillo. “Bill’s story is a prime example of why we love what we do here at Proforma. In launching this program, we feel that many Affiliate Owners will be able to provide the necessary products and solutions to help local organizations thrive and support their own communities during these times and beyond.”
The Community Fundraising Program provides Affiliate Owners a way to utilize Proforma’s eCommerce solution platform, ProStores, to create a free online storefront for organizations’ local fundraising initiatives. By creating an online storefront, local restaurants, retailers and other organizations can easily sell their own branded merchandise to raise money and continue generating revenue to support their businesses, their employees and their local communities in need.
“This is a great example of how Proforma’s $15 million dollar investment in technology can help our Affiliate Owners differentiate themselves in the market,” said Proforma Chief Technology Officer Brian Carothers. “Our proprietary Popup store technology and its integration with our ProVision business management technology platform uniquely enables Proforma to seamlessly, easily and efficiently support these types of programs.”
