Lower your expenses and save money for your mission.

Your nonprofit makes purchases every day, just to keep the doors open and your team functioning — and all those costs can add up in a hurry.

With your NIA insurance, you get free access to PurchasingPoint® — a group purchasing program that uses nonprofits’ collective buying power to negotiate significant discounts on many of the products and services nonprofits like yours commonly need.

Save on purchases you already need to make.

Get major discounts on the products and services your nonprofit buys anyway — office supplies, furniture, shipping, food, and more.
