More and more companies are recognizing the positive impact that nonprofits have on the world. They also know that nonprofits, as the name suggests, are not focused on chasing profits, but rather on maximizing their footprint.
That’s why they offer their services/products to nonprofits at discounted rates. So you can take advantage of the cheaper pricing and spend the money you save on more important things.
As a registered nonprofit, you qualify for an array of discounts for different services. These services cover a whole range of activities, from accounting and legal services to CRM software and team management. And everything in between.
We have put together a list of key discounts that we think your nonprofit organization might want to take advantage of.

In addition to taking advantage of all these discounts, there are other things you can do to make the most of your budget. Check out this blog post for 17 different ways that your nonprofit can save money.
One great way to increase your donations without doing anything extra is to ask donors to cover the processing fee on their donations. It’s a relatively small amount that most donors don’t mind covering. But it can all add up to a significant amount. And every dollar helps.
In the spirit of saving money, you should also use an online donation platform that charges the lowest fee possible, like Donorbox. Donorbox is free to start and charges a small platform fee of 1.5% for the month’s donations, the lowest fee in the market. There are no setup charges. Definitely worth checking out!
