TESTIMONIALS

“Through collaboration, efficient supply chain management and the use of the same innovative business practices used in the business world, The Back Office Cooperative has saved members millions of dollars since its inception. Applying these sound business principles to our daily administrative operations enhances our ability as nonprofits to do the work we set out to do—helping people and changing lives.”

David McConnell, CFO, One Hope United

“In these difficult economic times, The Back Office Cooperative helped El Hogar Del Niño manage costs and reduce expenses. They have offered keen advice and insight into multiple areas of cost reduction. I’ve experienced BOC and their key vendors, such as Expense Reduction Analysts, to go well above and beyond in providing excellent service. With their guidance we were able to substantially reduce cost in the areas of insurance and office supplies. We are very happy to be associated with their services and will continue to grow our relationship with them in the future.”

Mario Perez, Executive Directo, El Hogar Del Niño

“We have saved more than $1 million in our five years with The Back Office Cooperative. As the human services sector continues to face funding challenges, adopting self-sustaining initiatives like this has a real impact on our agency and the families we serve.”

Ric Estrada, CEO, Metropolitan Family Services

“Joining BOC makes perfect sense, especially in these very challenging economic times. After a brief introductory meeting and training, we were up and running on the program. Within the first month, we already started to see significant savings of 10-75% on basic purchases and continue to discover new areas of value as we get deeper into the program. What’s more, the program is easy to implement and we didn’t sacrifice quality. I would strongly encourage all Not-for profits to consider joining BOC as soon as possible!”

Art Mollenhauer, CEO
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago

“Most nonprofits are too small to wield any purchasing power, but when several nonprofits band together all buying the same products, you can really get a vendor’s attention. The co-op has done all the research and legwork establishing the vendors and negotiating the discounts. This helps small organizations who otherwise couldn’t afford to spend that time to save money.”

Frank Poremski, CFO, Children’s Home + Aid
