Consultant/Vendor Partners

Nonprofits often seek outside assistance to help them resolve problems. HandsOn NWNC is committed to building positive partnerships with well-qualified consultants and vendors in our region so that, together, we can strengthen nonprofits in northwestern North Carolina. In an effort to provide nonprofits with a list of reputable consultants/vendors, HandsOn NWNC requests that those interested in becoming a Consultant/Vendor Partner meet the following criteria:

  • A minimum of three years nonprofit experience (as staff or board member, volunteer, consultant, or vendor working with nonprofits.)
  • A minimum of two years recent experience in a nonprofit consulting/vendor capacity.
  • Demonstrated skill in stated area(s) of practice.

By becoming a Consultant/Vendor Partner with HandsOn NWNC for $100 per year, you’ll receive a listing on our website for one year and a onetime notation of your information in our monthly e-newsletter which is sent to more than 700 nonprofit representatives in our six-county region (Forsyth, Davidson, Davie, Stokes, Surry and Yadkin Counties.)  If you are interested in being on our Consultant/Vendor list, please complete this form.

Funding Partners

In addition to our Supporting Partners, HandsOn NWNC relies on institutional funders that invest in our mission and programming. These funders include: Blue Cross Blue Shield of NC Foundation, Clemmons Community Foundation, The Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust, The Winston-Salem Foundation, and Wake Forest University’s Office of Civic and Community Engagement.

HandsOn NWNC invites nonprofits to financially support our mission to build their effectiveness and efficiency, and increase volunteerism.  Becoming a Supporting Partner allows organizations to demonstrate the value they place on their relationship with HandsOn NWNC.

Typically, Supporting Partners are eligible for over $800 in discounts. Since you can send multiple staff and board members to our events, your savings could be even larger!
  • Exclusive participation in our HandsOn Board Bank and Board Speed Dating, that can connect you with qualified candidates to strengthen your leadership capacity.
  • Special marketing and other opportunities before they become available to our wider network of nonprofits.
  • A customized list of service projects for your clients, members, or employees that meets your exact specifications, for FREE! (Available upon request.)
  • Ability to purchase blocks of consulting time for $350/ 8 hours or $50/hr, allowing you to engage staff expertise to directly help your organization (i.e. strategic planning, in-house board and staff training, etc.) provided at these reduced rates.
  • Opportunity to nominate volunteers as one of the “featured volunteers” on our homepage.
  • Organization’s profile highlighted as the “featured nonprofit” on our homepage, including organization’s logo and a hotlink to the organization’s site. Length of time displayed will depend on the number of supporting organizations in any given year.
