We decided to leverage NPPG's existing vendor base to provide our members with the widest variety of service and supply offerings available to nonprofits.
San Diego, CA (Vocus) November 10, 2010
The Non-Profit Purchasing Group, (http://www.nonprofitpurchasinggroup.org), the only group purchasing organization dedicated exclusively to non-profit organizations nationwide, announced today that it has entered into a strategic partnership with the Alliance for Nevada Nonprofits (“ANN”) (http://www.alliancefornevadanonprofits.org). As of November 8, 2010, every nonprofit and sponsor member of ANN will have access to member benefits powered by NPPG.
ANN’s mission is to strengthen communities by increasing the influence and capacity of Nevada’s nonprofit sector. A key component of every state nonprofit association is to provide its members with cost savings to further each nonprofit’s mission. Phil Johncock, Interim Executive Director, said: “we decided to leverage NPPG’s existing vendor base to provide our members with the widest variety of service and supply offerings available to nonprofits. In addition to NPPG’s over 50 vendor partners, NPPG is working with us to allow Nevada service providers to offer their products and services at a discount to ANN’s members through a unique web-page on our site. With this partnership, we get the best of both worlds, and don’t need to use precious resources to build and maintain our own benefits program.”
NPPG CEO Dan Engel added: “We’ve worked very hard this year to provide non-profits nationwide with discounts from 10% to 55% on their most commonly purchased goods and services. We’ve grown from 21 vendor partners at launch to over 50 best-in-class vendor partners today and continue to add more monthly. We are committed to the non-profit sector and believe that through partnerships like the one with ANN, we can reach thousands more non-profits and enable them to stretch their hard-earned dollars.”
For many non-profit associations, federations and management service organizations, offering discounts and cost savings to their constituents (member organizations and chapters) through a group purchasing service is a great way to recruit and support their membership. Without the right scale, however, establishing and maintaining a group purchasing service can be expensive. This is where NPPG can help.
NPPG can create and maintain a private label version of its website that is branded to each association and will immediately open members to new savings and make the association’s branded website their one stop discount shopping destination. ANN is the first association to take advantage of this opportunity. NPPG is negotiating other such contracts and expects to announce contracts with associations that will bring its membership to over 10,000 by January 1, 2011. NPPG can establish a private label site within two weeks.
