WELCOME TO THE GOODWILL NCPP
Working Together. $aving Money.
The Goodwill NCPP was started with the goal of locating marketplace savings on the products and services Goodwills use to operate. Beginning in 2014 with one program and one supplier, the Goodwill NCPP now has over 20 supplier partners that generate over $6M in sales. Through our growing coalition of Goodwills, we continue to look for greater opportunities to build savings for the participating members (over $1M currently).
Goodwills use a large quantity of goods and services in order to operate in a way that reflects the Goodwill mission cause. Whether we are supporting the operation of our sizable retail business or servicing one of the many enterprise businesses with which Goodwills are currently engaged, our programs help support and offer savings across the board. The list below offers a quick overview of just some of the programs we have available. To learn more about these programs or about the savings opportunities they offer, please visit our secure website.
I have been employed with Goodwill since 2014. Shortly after starting, I was introduced to the National Cooperative Purchasing Program (NCPP). With each Goodwill region acting as its own entity, the NCPP is a great program to assist each region with cost savings by combining volumes on similar product categories, resulting in more mission money. Some examples of savings include: approximately $50k annually on shopping bags by combining volume and changing specs, initial savings of $4.5k on hangers and savings on rubber bands. In addition, NCPP is a great resource for the purchasing departments to collaborate on processes, procedures, and advice, which helps develop and grow individuals to their fullest potential.”

We started working with the Goodwill National Cooperative Purchasing group in November of 2014. There are tremendous savings to be realized on supplies/services that every Goodwill uses, some examples of our savings – 53% on Vinyl gloves, 59% on hangers, 59% on T-shirt bags and 64% on paper towels just to name a few. The purchasing group continues to add additional savings on high quality products/services and over the next fiscal year we expect our savings to be in the neighborhood of $300,000!”
