Group discounts available


Save on office supplies and enter to win Red Sox tickets!

What if your organization could win tickets to a Red Sox game and get group rate savings from W.B. Mason on office supplies? Umm…yes, please!

Here’s what you do:

  • Enroll in CJP’s group purchasing program with W.B. Mason no later than 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, July 31, 2021 by contacting Alan Osheroff at alan.osheroff@wbmason.com or by calling 508-277-5808.


Here’s what happens:

  • You’ll get access to a host of negotiated savings, rebates and preferential terms on school and office supplies
  • Enrolled partners can easily locate a list of over 500 lower-cost, popular items by logging on to wbmason.com and looking under the Favorites menu. These discounts are available to both new and current customers as long as you are enrolled in the CJP discount program.
  • CJP will use random.org to select a winner from our enrolled partners.  The prize is four infield Red Sox tickets for a game in August. (Specific dates to be worked out with W.B. Mason for a mutually agreeable time.) 
     

Any questions about our group purchasing programs? Please contact Ana Volpi, Senior Director, Community Collaborations at anav@cjp.org.
 

Power and energy purchasing

Don’t miss this opportunity to lock in lower prices for electricity and natural gas. Energy prices are expected to rise as the domestic and international economies expand and usage soars with high summer temperatures. Getting out in front of rising prices is a safe strategy for organizations to protect their budgets.

Our two preferred energy purchasing providers — PowerOptions and Best Practice Energy — are eager to speak with CJP partners about how their programs work, and how to take advantage of market movements now.

To explore opportunities with PowerOptions, please contact Tricia Rush (prush@poweroptions.org, 617-686-1422).

To start the conversation with Best Practice Energy, please contact Jordan Berman (jberman@bestpracticeenergy.com, 617-803-4394).

 

Health Insurance

We are working to bring affordable and quality health insurance options to partner organizations that employ fewer than 50 benefits-eligible staff, and are currently surveying partners to understand needs. Please be in touch with Kimberlee Schumacher with any questions or for more details.
