OneSource is a one of its kind institution for the Greater Cincinnati area. It is a one-stop solution provider for non-profit organizations by providing consultation services. It also helps organizations save their dollars with buying furniture and supplies at the marketplace. The staff is very friendly and always proactive to help.

OneSource Center is an incredible center for nonprofits in the Cincinnati area. I am particularly impressed with an offering from OneSource Center that allows nonprofits to borrow a large variety of décor items for fundraising and member support events. The offerings allow nonprofits to use these beautiful items creatively for their special events and save a tremendous amount of money – money that can be used in other areas of mission. The staff and volunteers are extremely supportive of nonprofits. I am proud to work with this organization helping those that are on the front lines making a difference in the lives of so many.

OneSource, the result of a merger between the Executive Service Corps of Cincinnati and ResSource, has been serving nonprofits for over 20 years. As a volunteer I have seen first-hand how OneSource has been able to make a real difference in hundreds of area non-profits by providing coaching, consulting, training, and other resources such as furniture, office supplies, and service referrals. OneSource has worked with a wide variety of nonprofits including start-ups and large sophisticated organizations representing almost every sector of nonprofit services. It has been a pleasure helping other nonprofits work to achieve their missions.

OneSource is an outstanding and unique non-profit in the Cincinnati area. It is the non-profit supporting the non-profits, providing business consulting services, and training, development, and leadership sessions. Add to that the furniture and office supplies they sell to the non-profits at a very discounted price. OneSource strengthens our local non-profits and through its work, our community.

I continue to believe in this incredible nonprofit which supports all nonprofits in the Greater Cincinnati region. Nonprofits leaders can receive expert consulting or coaching guidance to help their agency further expand their mission; staff can expand their capabilities through a wide-range of training and leadership development opportunities; and nonprofits can obtain needed office furniture and retail products to help serve their constituents better. The staff and volunteers are helpful and resourceful. I encourage all nonprofits to look into services and products offered here.

OneSource Center for Nonprofit Excellence is such a great resource for Greater Cincinnati nonprofits!

That tremendous value was recently recognized and reinforced with a grant from the Greater Cincinnati Foundation to support the Nonprofit Leadership Institute of Greater Cincinnati (NLIGC). NLIGC delivers high-quality, affordable leadership education and professional development to nonprofit organizations in our community. Thank you, Greater Cincinnati Foundation!

But wait, there's more.

The furniture bank, marketplace, and decor rental will stretch tight nonprofit budgets, and OneSource Center's Building Blocks workshops can bring best practices and relevant training to nonprofit personnel to make your nonprofit better.

OneSource consultants have the know-how and expertise to work through operational issues, strategic challenges, or leadership development concerns. These pros will deliver tremendous value whether yours in a small nonprofit staffed with volunteers or an established agency with a multi-million dollar budget and scores of paid staff.

You absolutely must make OneSource Center for Nonprofit Excellence an integral part of your organization's bank of resources.

My organization has benefited from OneSource in two distinct ways. As a new executive director, I was able to attend an outstanding training session on fundraising that was well attended and very well presented. Then, last month, we were able to shop for furniture for our Center, purchasing chairs, file drawers and cabinets, all for less than $100. I am looking forward to more training and more shopping this summer!

The OneSource vision just makes sense: better nonprofit organizations create a better community. As a volunteer, I have never been embraced with open arms like I am at OneSource. They make you feel apart of their team and of the bigger picture. You can’t help but ask what else you can do for this amazing organization. OneSource exceeded my expectations, and I have no doubt they will continue to do so.

I have volunteered with OneSource Center for Nonprofit Excellence for over seven years in a variety of different roles. I have been blessed to have seen first hand the impressive difference this organization has made in our local nonprofit community. OneSource takes a comprehensive approach with their mission providing services ranging from coaching/mentoring nonprofit professionals to be the next leaders of organizations, to providing gently used office furniture to nonprofit organizations at discount prices, to offering a variety of training and leadership development opportunities that promote nonprofit excellence. It is a pleasure to give my time, talent and resources to OneSource in order for Greater Cincinnati nonprofits to grow and prosper.

OneSource Center for Nonprofit Excellence is a great source of guidance, products and connections for nonprofits all across the Greater Cincinnati area. They have expert consultants who donate their time and years of expertise to help nonprofits thrive. Corporations donate furniture that is sold at a fraction of the cost to nonprofits who might not otherwise be able to purchase these needed items. Their Marketplace offers goods that nonprofits need to keep their organizations running -- whether it is for sheets, building repair or cleaning supplies. They have in-depth training and monthly seminars to educate and grow nonprofits staffs. If OneSource doesn't have the capabilities to help "in house" they have connections with other nonprofits that can help too. OneSource is the only one of its kind in Cincinnati. Such an asset to our city's nonprofit community!
