|Materials for the Arts (MFTA) is a project of New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. MFTA allows private individuals donate everything from computers and furniture to fabric and office supplies. These donations are received at warehouse in Long Island City where non-profit recipient arts groups can take from over 60,000 items on their shelves.
Stone House Digital built a web-based inventory system that manages MFTAs entire process from donors to inventory to recipient group. Recipients can modify their contact info, make appointments online, and see what items they have received via a password protected member area. Donors have similar abilities.
Features of the system includes HTML output, formatted emails, dynamic graphics, barcodes, PDF invoices, and Microsoft Excel export. This project started in late 2003 and is ongoing.
