GIVING BACK: Your Guide to Philanthropic Opportunities in the Berkshires

Each year the Nonprofit Center of the Berkshires publishes a Giving Back guide listing over 1,000 nonprofits by category, i.e. Arts & Culture, Housing, Youth & Education.  Listings are FREE for all Berkshire nonprofits.


Designed to connect nonprofits to people who want to “give back” either as volunteers or donors, the Giving Back guide has become an indispensable tool.


The Giving Back guide has grown every year as more nonprofits participate with full page profiles and more groups such as schools, giving circles, and leadership programs request the book.


Listing is based on nonprofits incorporated in Berkshire County and we also include organizations that may be incorporated somewhere else but offer programs in Berkshire County.


We are excited to announce a partnership with The Berkshire Eagle to distribute the 2022-23 Giving Back guide to 14,000 subscribers in October 2022.

2023-24 Giving Guide


The 2023/24 Giving Back guide will be shipped at the end of October.
At that time, you’ll be able to download a PDF of the entire 80 pages, or order a hard copy for $5 that includes postage.


You do not need a PayPal account to process payment. All credit card payments will process through PayPal, you are not required to have, or set up, a PayPal account.


Distribution via The Berkshire Eagle


This year we will partner with The Berkshire Eagle in distributing our full-color, glossy magazine style guide to 14,000 subscribers.


We know that newspaper subscribers are more civic-minded in general, and our mail date on a Saturday in October ensures the Giving Back guide will be in homes in time for year-end giving decisions.


The Berkshire Eagle is an award-winning newspaper that is locally-owned and offers robust coverage of the nonprofit sector.

Copies of the guide will be distributed in the Berkshires at coffee shops, libraries, schools and other community spaces. Read the digital version at this link >>
