Program Benefits

PurchasingPoint® is a discount group purchasing program available to National Assembly members and their affiliates, as well as other national nonprofit networks that become members of PurchasingPoint® directly.

Discounts in the PurchasingPoint® program are based on $35 billion in annual purchasing by some of the nation’s largest nonprofits. As a result, the program provides access to a level of pricing typically reserved for Fortune 100 companies. Savings, which average 30% annually, can be redirected from nonprofit overhead spending and into the hands of mission-related programs.

  • Savings: Hundreds of popular vendors and manufacturers offer significant discounts to nonprofits with an estimated average savings of 30% annually. Organizations enrolled in the program also get the added benefit of passing along employee discounts to staff members. Since its inception in 2004, PurchasingPoint® has saved over 7,100 nonprofits an estimated $158 million, as illustrated by the infographic.
  • Access for Affiliates: The program is available at no cost to National Assembly or PurchasingPoint® members’ affiliated networks.
  • Customized Co-Branded Portal: Customized web portals provide easy access to information about discounted program pricing. Each customized portal contains branding and messaging directly from the member’s national office.
  • News Updates: Regular communications about the portal and program include newsletters, sales reports, and announcements.
  • Personalized Customer Service: The PurchasingPoint® team is available for questions about the program, vendors, pricing, ordering, and the portal’s functions.
PurchasingPoint® is part of National Assembly Business Services, Inc., a wholly-owned and operated subsidiary of the National Human Services Assembly. The program is provided through membership in a group purchasing cooperative called AdvantageTrust, a division of HealthTrust Purchasing Group.

PurchasingPoint Testimonial

“The PurchasingPoint program is a lifesaver for us - from our day-to-day purchases with Staples and FedEx to our travel using Enterprise. I continue to use the technology vendors, and we purchased paint, furniture, carpeting, and even supplemental HVAC through the program. I truly use the PurchasingPoint program every day when deciding to choose a vendor and make a purchase.” -- Ralph Huber, Partnership for Public Service

PurchasingPoint Testimonial

“The National Assembly discount program is one of the most robust programs of its kind in the country. As a former board member of the National Assembly, I saw firsthand just how many nonprofits are being helped by this program, enabling them to spend more money on mission and less on overhead.” -- Joe Haggerty, Former COO, United Way Worldwide
