We are pleased to offer NPPG benefits to our members as a bonus to CEN’s comprehensive member offerings.
San Diego, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) January 30, 2011
The Non-Profit Purchasing Group, (http://www.nonprofitpurchasinggroup.org), the only group purchasing organization dedicated exclusively to non-profit organizations nationwide, announced today that the Center for Excellence in Nonprofits (“CEN”) (http://www.cen.org) has made NPPG member benefits available to all CEN non-profit member organizations.
CEN serves non-profit leaders throughout Silicon Valley through exclusive member programs that build non-profit capacity at the highest levels of leadership. Molly Polidoroff, Executive Director, said: “We are pleased to offer NPPG benefits to our members as a bonus to CEN’s comprehensive member offerings.”
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 55 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 CEN, 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. CEN is the second association to take advantage of this opportunity. NPPG can establish a private label site for a new association within two weeks.
