Every Berkshire nonprofit is listed free in this annual directory, 5000 copies of which are distributed free throughout the county. Make sure your contact information is up-to-date HERE. If you would like a full-page profile to increase awareness of your organization, NPC members pay only $80 (nonmembers pay $130).

Technical assistance is offered by the hour or on a project basis. Having an experienced advisor with extensive nonprofit background, familiar with local funders, and adept at marketing, management & planning provides real value for the money. If we don’t have the expertise in house, we’ll connect you to the right consultant. NPC members pay $50/hour for assistance.
The NPC regularly shares member posts. If you need outside assistance, we have several wonderful social media experts who can create Social Media programs for you at affordable rates. Call (413) 645-3151 for more information.
We have a team of volunteers willing to review, comment and proofread your grant applications or reports.
