Four Reasons To Become A Business Supporter

 

Since its inception in 2016, the Nonprofit Center of the Berkshires has become THE go-to source for information, education, and communication for the Berkshire nonprofit sector. The Berkshire business support has been a considerable source of support for our rapid growth and is invaluable in helping us meet increasing demand for our services. We hope you will consider this opportunity to join the “Business Supporter” member category as a unique way to raise your visibility and support the nonprofit community as a whole.

“The Toole Agency has been fortunate to partner with NPC of the Berkshires for many years. As an NPC business member, we have had the opportunity to connect with many non-profits. NPC excels at showcasing their business members by providing “office hours” opportunities, energized programs (in-person and virtual), and the ability to have articles/white papers published. Liana and her staff are always professional and responsive. They are creative and always looking for new ways to connect business members with nonprofits to provide vital resources. We are thankful to be part of NPC, which has given our agency credibility as a resource for non-profits.” Kim Baker, Senior Account Executive

The NPC provides opportunities to get in front of nonprofits to promote your business:

 

  • Nonprofits call the NPC often for referrals – the more we know about our Business Supporters, the more we can connect you to the nonprofits needing your products or services

  • The NPC produces a NONPROFIT RESOURCE DIRECTORY annually to make sourcing easier for nonprofits – a great place to advertise your business
  • A Business-to-Nonprofit EXPO to connect nonprofits to business resources is coming whenever it is safe to resume in-person events
“I want to thank you for the multiple referrals you have given my business this year. You and the Nonprofit Center have more than covered the cost of advertising with both the Giving Back Guide and the Connections Magazine. Through you I have been able to help more nonprofits and I’ve made new contacts and lasting relationships. It has helped my bottom line, as well. And you can quote me on that.” Amy Chin/Database Consultant
