Non-Profits to Receive Immediate Savings on National Name Brand Goods and Services

SAN DIEGO, Jan. 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Non-Profit Purchasing Group, the first group purchasing organization dedicated exclusively to non-profit organizations, announced today that non-profits nationwide can now begin saving on their everyday purchases through a discounted shopping Web site at www.nonprofitpurchasinggroup.org.

"NPPG is the only one-stop discounted shopping site for non-profits," said CEO Dan Engel. "We have negotiated discounts with name brand national vendors based upon the purchasing power of thousands of non-profit organizations. Through our Web site, non-profits have immediate access to savings online and in retail outlets. Now it is easy for non-profits of any size, with or without employees, to save on their most commonly purchased goods and services."

NPPG's Web site features a savings calculator that demonstrates how quickly a non-profit would recoup the nominal membership fee. There is even a downloadable executive/board member presentation to present to key decision makers in an organization. "We want access to savings to be simple, and that's what makes our Web site unique," added Engel.

Initial vendors include national name brands such as Office Depot, Standard Register, PR Newswire, Constant Contact, Intuit, SurveyMonkey, Stamps.com, BoardSource, GoToMeeting.com, Pre-employ.com, Hertz, Hyatt Hotels and Empire Promotional Products. NPPG also provides discounts to other important non-profit fundraising and other research tools such as GrantStation, NOZAsearch.com and NTEN (the Nonprofit Technology Network). In addition, discounts are provided by renowned service providers in such fields as law, graphic design, strategic communications and public relations, web design and search engine optimization. Over time, NPPG intends to add more service providers with non-profit expertise in every major metropolitan area.

"We became a vendor partner with NPPG because we believe that all non-profits should benefit from the same types of discounts available to large corporations," explained Linnea Westlake, principal at Standard Register. "Like the other vendor partners, we've set up a dedicated Web site that enables NPPG members to start shopping and access discounts immediately. We share NPPG's mission to provide easy access to necessary supplies and services through a one-stop discounted shopping site."
