Partnering With Schools
We build strong relationships between our schools and local owners and between our national operations and our apparel suppliers. Let us play the lead role in developing, managing or expanding an optimized uniform program for your school.
Our goals include:
- Reducing the time administrators spend on enforcement and discipline
- Keeping parents happy with our superior retail service
- Giving students a uniform they are proud to wear
Educational Outfitters gives back a percentage of every dollar earned from our partner schools. This way we can directly contribute toward much-needed academic resources, technology, facilities, playgrounds and student scholarships every year. We also work with schools to create other exciting fundraising opportunities with items including custom embroidered shirts and outerwear, screen printed T-shirts, tackle twill lettered spirit wear and custom logo promotional products.
Our franchise owners are working to be major contributors in their local communities and beyond. In addition to donating financially to their partner schools, they are donating quality clothing to Catholic Charities and other non-profit and faith-based organizations, serving on Chambers of Commerce, coaching local youth teams, serving in local churches and ministries, and volunteering in local schools. Woven throughout the fabric of our company is the desire to serve and creatively reach individuals and communities in need.
In all we do as a local and national business, giving and serving are an important part of Who We Are.
Growing Our Giving
As Educational Outfitters has pioneered a new level of partnership with schools and customer service for families, our hope is to pioneer a new level of giving and community service in our industry domestically and globally. As we grow our business, we are committed growing our giving. We want to partner with our schools, families, and suppliers and do more together than we can do on our own.
Our company purpose is to seek, serve and honor God as a business and to have a multiplying impact on the lives our company touches. These lives are found in our local neighborhoods, in our domestic suppliers’ manufacturing and fulfillment facilities, in the developing world communities of our importing vendors, and through the charitable organizations we support. Do you have the desire to creatively give and serve with us? We want to hear from you! Contact us and let’s explore how to make a difference together.
The Educational Outfitters Adoption Fund
There are over 145 million orphans in the world today. Each year many thousands are being adopted and finding families, but too many more are being passed over because they have special needs. Placing a child with special needs into a forever family is a much harder proposition than placing a healthy child. For more information about our fund, click here.
Continuing or Updating Your Established School Uniform Policy
If your school is looking to continue its established uniform program, we can match it or work with you to enhance, update or expand your approved dress code. We have done this successfully and seamlessly with hundreds of schools across the country. And beyond a core uniform program, we can provide team wear, gym wear, fleeces and jackets, spirit wear, and booster items – all sporting your esteemed school name and logo. Find a retail location near you and discover the possibilities!
Developing a New School Uniform Program
When developing a new uniform program, you need a trusted expert to help along the way. Not a single school that introduces a new uniform program ever abandons it. It is proven that school uniforms have a transforming impact on student attitudes and the academic environment.
We have worked with numerous schools to accomplish their missions by helping establish a uniform policy that:
- Eliminates peer pressure and competition
- Creates a safe, focused academic atmosphere
- Fosters unity among diverse student populations
- Increases school spirit
- Promotes a school in its community
- Promotes a student’s true identity so they feel great about themselves
- Eliminates morning hassles and delays for students and parents
- Saves families money
- Contributes to school revenues
Educational Outfitters has a deep understanding of school uniform program development. It requires the excellent planning, communication and logistics management best provided by a local owner and member of your community. You also need champions within the school’s administration and parents, and we are the committed uniform provider to see it through successfully. Let us play a lead role in winning over your teachers, parents, and students. It won’t be hard to prove the transforming benefits of school uniforms. Your nearest Educational Outfitters franchise owner can show you how!
