Calgary, A.B., Canada (Vocus/PRWEB) January 13, 2011
The Non-Profit Purchasing Group of Canada announced today that non-profit organizations and charities nationwide have an opportunity to save money on their everyday purchases of products and services through a discounted website at http://www.nppg.ca.
“With the current tough economic conditions, donations to most non-profit organizations in Canada have been declining for the past two years,” said NPPG Canada President Alex Golin. “After the first year, many groups simply tightened their belts, but now with a second straight slow year, a lot of non-profits are having to take a serious look at either cutting back their programs or laying off people. To a large organization, downsizing may be an option, but for many of the over 200,000 small to midsize non-profits in Canada, their only option would be to no longer open their doors to help those in need.”
NPPG Canada is a Group Purchasing Organization that has negotiated discounts and savings on products that charities need and services that non-profits use. Products like office and shipping supplies, water and energy-efficient equipment, fundraising and database management software all help non-profits become more cost-effective in their roles within their communities. In addition, background checks, anti-microbial paint, and online employee survey tools all help keep an organization and their volunteers safe and happy. For a nominal membership fee (as low as $9.99/month), access is given to an extensive list of vendor partners that can offer their discounted products and services, and that means that NPPG Canada members have lots of opportunity to reduce their expenditures. The money that they would save every year could go a long way to keep programs running and services strong. The website also provides people with an opportunity to buy gift memberships and donate them to their favourite non-profit, ultimately giving charities far more than the initial amount!
