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 $45 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. Double-digit contract savings are accessible, depending on vendors utilized, which can be redirected from nonprofit overhead spending and into the hands of mission-related programs.

  • Savings: Over 200 popular vendors and manufacturers offer significant discounts to nonprofits with double-digit contract savings available, depending on vendors utilized. 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 8,500 nonprofits an estimated $222 million.
  • Access for Affiliates: The program is available at no cost to National Assembly members or PurchasingPoint® 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
