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.


We are excited to announce a new partnership with Berkshire Magazine to print and mail the 2021-22 Giving Back guide to over 13,000 subscribers in September 2021.

NEW format & EXPANDED distribution via Berkshire Magazine

Given the societal changes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Giving Back guide transitioned in 2020 to a new format & distribution model to directly reach prospective donors & volunteers where they are – at home. We are excited to announce a new partnership with Berkshire Magazine to print and mail the 2021-22 Giving Back guide with their fall issue in September 2021. The Giving Back guide is the same size as the magazine and mailed to 13,600 subscribers.


The profile of Berkshire Magazine’s readership is a desired target audience for the Giving Back guide, with annual household income of $125,000+ throughout the county and neighboring communities, well educated, affluent, home owners with disposable income, median age 45 to 55, slightly more female than male.


Due to page count limitations, we included 100 nonprofit profiles available on a first-come, first-served basis. As always, every Berkshire nonprofit is included free in the comprehensive directory organized by category.
