I love one source i work for a non profit that service ove a 100 women at a time we have several functions a year for the women. One we do is womens day in March for womens month and I am in charged of the gift bags with a very smal budget with one source I can come and get a love of things we take for granted daily and the women love it and a lot of time I can get more. My office is decked out in the furniture and looks great and give me space if I had to pay regular price for the two nice book cases I got my job would have said no. Also I do group four days a week I keep my group members organized and they are motivated to do their best with the folders, binders, highlighter pens we get so much done and I would never get to offer this if we were buying from staples. This place helps so much on so many different levels. Last year we needed coats badly and I went to see if they had any yes they did they were new, nice looking, warm and fordable we also got some boots at one time. This place is a true blessing for a non profit with very limited budget but with one source I get to do it big for my clients and see them smile from ear to ear keep up the good work. Especially Beth who knows her agaencies and reacheas out if she feel she has something they can use. Thank a lot

From the beginning of our relationship with OneSource (when they used to be ReSource Cincinnati) to now, they have been a blessing to our 110 members of the United Pet Fund. The ability to shop for useful items that all non-profits can use at pennies-on-the dollar prices has opened up avenues to them that did not exist before. Budgets are tight for animal welfare organizations, so any savings are tremendous to them. In earlier times, the seminars put on by their retired 'business people' helped our members to realize what it takes to run a non-profit in a manner that will allow their sustainability. We truly appreciate partnering with them!

I've been a volunteer consultant with ESCC before they merged with OneSource and with OneSource since; a total of over 10 years. OneSource is an all purpose provider of assistance to non-profits.

When you need to come to one place to get help to strengthen, focus and support your mission, you come to OneSource. There is a team of professionals waiting to share their knowledge and experience with you as you develop or pivot your resources to continue your mission. As a redistribution center for corporate overstock we have the opportunity to help you by filling your furniture needs as well as get some great products from the MarketPlace into your hands at a fraction of the retail cost.
My experience with OneSource now includes interacting on a daily basis with the customers and clients that we support. Checking out most of the clients through the showroom at our new location on Dalton Street, I have been able to learn about the missions of the organizations that shop here. Often directing them to resources that they didn’t know we had.
Working at OneSource has given me the home that I’ve been looking for to finish my working career. We care, we work and we thrive together.

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!

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 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!

When you think of organizations that truly serve their community, ReSource fits the bill.
As a volunteer, Board Member for the last 13 years, i have seen the change that ReSource brings to its Member Organizations.

With its monthly educational seminars, product sales, or interaction with other NFP's in the Cincinnati, it continues to raise the bar in keeping organizations focused on their mission.

Our office just donated office furniture to ReSource and my staff commented about how professional, accommodating, and thankful they were for the donation.

I will continue to recommend ReSource to others for donations and NFP's for membership.
