Trainings and events of interest to the nonprofit community can now be found on one centralized calendar on our website! No more hunting for opportunities on multiple sites — we have everything consolidated on one calendar, with links to the hosting organization for more information and registration details.
Warehouse shoppers may not be aware of the opportunity to get help through our consulting services. From our merger with Executive Service Corps, we now have approximately 100 business professionals who can assist with things like strategic planning, board development, HR issues, and other business solutions, all for a fraction of the cost of for-profit consultants. We also provide individual coaching for executive and other leadership positions. Learn more on our website or fill out a Request for Assistance form for a free assessment.
We have received support from several foundations to assist agencies with needed consulting services. If you have areas of need but no ability to pay our below-market rate fees, you can apply for grant assistance. Funds are limited but we encourage all agencies who need help to apply. Our goal is to be YOUR nonprofit resource center so do not want funding restrictions to limit your growth! To request help, complete our OneSource Consulting Grant Application form.
Also, as you plan for 2019, consider planning ahead for any consulting work that would enhance your work and budget accordingly. And if you know of needs for next year, please let us know the need and timing, as we can include your project in grant requests for future funding.
Open Shopping Days
We are transitioning from a membership model so we are now open to all nonprofits! As a OneSource Center, we want to be open to all who need help. To shop in the warehouse on any day during the month, organizations can register for a OneSource Shopper’s Club card (think Sam’s Club membership). Without a OneSource Shopper’s Card, the warehouse is open to all nonprofits on the last Wednesday of every month. (No annual fee for shopping on this once a month Open Shopping day.) ReSource members are automatically transferred to OneSource Shopper’s Club status. Our next open shopping day is August 29.
While many organizations know about our Furniture Bank, we want to introduce the expanded offerings in our MarketPlace. We have a new partnership with Amazon and weekly pickups of donations from Walmart stores, plus a continuing partnership with Home Depot. This provides a wide variety of useful merchandise in our Marketplace – household goods, toys and baby care, personal care products, and more! These items can be used for agency needs or for your end-clients. Please share this information with other personnel or departments in your organization that would find these products a valuable support for your programs and services.
