GREAT BARRINGTON — The Nonprofit Center of the Berkshires (NPC) is distributing 15,000 Giving Back guides in time for the holiday giving season.
The Giving Back guide contains a directory of Berkshire nonprofits by category, and over 100 nonprofit profiles that detail ways people can help. 14,000 copies were delivered to Berkshire Eagle subscribers in October, while the remaining 1,500 copies are currently being placed in coffee shops, retail outlets, libraries, and other community gathering places.
"We've been producing the Giving Back guide for seven years now," said Liana Toscanini, Executive Director of the Nonprofit Center of the Berkshires. "Each year we hear stories of people using the publication in different ways. In 2022, more than one corporate manager ordered copies for their staff in an effort to boost morale with a team volunteer experience."
The Giving Back guide is also used by schools, civic groups, giving circles, and wealth management advisors, among others.
The 72-page glossy publication also includes a story about the joys of volunteering, a tribute to the late philanthropist, Suzanne Green, and a list of nearly 200 NPC members. The Giving Back guide is sponsored by local businesses and foundations, and is updated each fall to ensure community members have the information they need to volunteer or donate.
