4. Promote Your Business

The Berkshire nonprofit sector is huge — 1,000+ nonprofits (the highest per capita in the Commonwealth). We spend money! And we need lots of products and services.

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 publishes an annual giving guide  – a targeted place to remind nonprofits of your expertise through advertising (Business Supporters receive discounts on ad opportunities).
  • 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 in the fall of 2020.

We know you get a lot of asks from nonprofits. Becoming a Business Supporter of the Nonprofit Center leverages all those donations by showing the community that you applaud ALL the good work being done by nonprofits and that you support the entire sector. Your generosity will be acknowledged across so many platforms there will be no question that your business plays an important role in Berkshire philanthropy.


The NPC produces a NONPROFIT RESOURCE GUIDE, online and in print, to make sourcing easier for nonprofits – a great place to advertise your business.
