OneSource Center Rolls Out New Memberships – Information Session January 10, 2023

Since our founding, OneSource Center has provided trusted services, products and connections to Greater Cincinnati area nonprofits — helping nonprofits enhance their impact in the community. As we look forward to 2023 and the exciting year ahead, we are revamping our OneSource Center Memberships by offering some new and never-before-seen membership benefits in 2023, and it’s not just about shopping in the Common Good Store anymore! 

You won’t want to miss this brief virtual information session available to all Greater Cincinnati nonprofits on Tuesday, January 10 at 11 AM. The meeting will highlight the new tiered membership options for nonprofits, and several of the exciting new benefits of being a OneSource Center member, including health insurance, 403b retirement plan, vouchers, financial checkups and more. During the info session, we will review all of these new and improved perks, and why it pays to be a OneSource Center Member. 

“This is something we’ve heard agencies ask for years, and we’re now able to make it a reality,” said Christie Brown, OneSource Center CEO, “it’s a really exciting time.”

“We will now be offering a tiered membership, with our Premium OneSource Membership getting access to 403b retirement plan participation at no cost to the agency, access to a semi-association health insurance plan, free webinar trainings, and more, while continuing to offer the traditional Basic membership our current members are used to.”

The new OneSource Memberships will roll out in January and current members will have the opportunity to select which membership option they would like to opt into. We will be accepting new memberships throughout the year. 

The Virtual Information Session will be held on Tuesday, January 10, 2023 at 11 AM and will last approximately 30-45 minutes. This information session is open to all current and prospective nonprofit members. Tell a colleague and bring a friend!
