Group purchasing

 

Group purchasing enables organizations to negotiate lower prices and preferable terms with product and service providers. We hope you will take time to learn about the many discounts available through our group purchasing arrangements with our providers in office supplies, power and energy, and more.

Best Practice Energy offers Community Solar, a program that can reduce your electricity bills and positively impact the environment without having to install solar panels on your property. Joining is easy and does not affect your current third-party electricity supply agreement. View the Community Solar program flyer.

PowerOptions is a woman-run nonprofit that exclusively serves nonprofits. They help customers procure electricity, liquid natural gas, and solar energy, looking holistically at your organization’s energy demand and tailoring a solution to address your goals.

Jewish nonprofit professionals communities of practice


Building on the success of our convenings for Jewish nonprofit professionals that we launched last year for development professionals and CEOs, we are expanding to the areas of finance and human resources. These convenings provide opportunities for professionals to gather (virtually) and discuss timely topics, share knowledge, seek advice, and build relationships with colleagues in related professional areas.

We encourage you to invite your colleagues to join, and welcome your participation to help shape these groups, suggest discussion topics, and ask questions.

If you have questions or want to offer input into the design of these or other convenings of Jewish nonprofit professionals, please contact Kimberlee Schumacher, VP of Partnerships & Services, at kimberlees@cjp.org. 

Human Resource, development, and finance professionals: Join a Community of Practice Listserv

We have created Google Groups (also known as Listservs) in order to enable HR, development, and finance professionals to reach out to colleagues and counterparts with questions, comments, ideas, and resources. You do not need a Gmail address to join. To join, please contact Glen Davis (HR professionals), Chrissy Malon (development professionals) or Mary Grassi (finance professionals).
