Donations to Common Good Program Support Individuals in Need

The OneSource Center Common Good Voucher Program is an answer to community need, providing free retail products to individuals in our region impacted by the pandemic or challenging times. The program is a continuation of an initiative begun in 2020 which allows nonprofit agencies to recommend low-income clients to the OneSource Center program.  Individuals utilizing the voucher program come from a variety of backgrounds, but can be from recovery centers or homeless shelters or dealing with pandemic times. Voucher recipients are working with agency representatives to establish self-sufficiency, and this program supports this vision. 

All donations to the Common Good Voucher Program are used to provide vouchers to clients of nonprofit agencies.Items available through the program can include personal care, household and kitchen items and even furniture – items donated to OneSource Center’s warehouse distribution center by philanthropic corporate donors.  Free vouchers for extremely reasonably priced furniture and products are distributed in $25 increments to OneSource Center member agencies for use by their clients. Multiple vouchers can be combined for larger purchases. An agency representative accompanies their client(s) when shopping. (more…)

Free Nonprofit Checkups Give Insight

Did you know OneSource Center offers FREE Nonprofit Check-ups, helping organizations assess the health of their nonprofit? The process is simple – usually involving the CEO and board chair providing some key information from materials they already have on hand. For most nonprofits who already have more to do than they can handle – this tool helps leaders prioritize where they should focus their efforts – something that is often difficult when organization leaders are in the “thick of things.” Why does OneSource Center offer this complimentary service? The answer is simple: OneSource Center wants nonprofits to succeed!

UpSpring, a nonprofit whose mission is to empower children experiencing homelessness in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky through education and enrichment opportunities, took advantage of the free OneSource Center Nonprofit Check-up process after hearing about it at the Social Venture Partner “Fast Pitch” competition. The process sounded interesting to Executive Director Alex Kuhns and the price was right!

“The free Nonprofit Check-up process we went through with OneSource Center was a time for our organization to pause and quickly reflect on what we were doing well, and where we needed to make some adjustments,” said Kuhns.  “As it turned out, some of the things our team was concerned about were things we could eliminate to better focus on things that had more impact. The process began some great conversations with our staff and board, and set the stage for a strategic planning initiative that ultimately helped us pivot easier with the pandemic response we are implementing now.”  (more…)
