GIVING BACK: Your Guide to Philanthropic Opportunities in the Berkshires

The Nonprofit Center published the 4th annual Giving Back Guide in November 2019. Thanks to our sponsors (Berkshire Bank, Feigenbaum Foundation, Dr. Robert C. & Tina Sohn Foundation), local advertisers, donors & nonprofit profiles 5,000 copies of “Giving Back” are distributed each year throughout Berkshire County.


The Giving Back guide lists 1,000+ Berkshire nonprofits by category, and is designed to connect these organizations to people who want to “give back” either as volunteers or donors. Listings are FREE for all Berkshire County nonprofits.


This annual publication also includes full-page profiles of nonprofits, articles, advertisements and more. Complimentary copies of the Giving Back guide are distributed throughout the county in popular community gathering places such as coffee shops, banks, markets, and restaurants.
