Print Story | Email Story

GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — The Nonprofit Center of the Berkshires is holding an online auction from March 16-31 to raise money for its educational programs and services for nonprofits.

The "Nonprofit Necessities" online auction features items needed by nonprofit organizations as well as things that appeal to the general public.

"Our local businesses and consultants are very generous in their support of our programs because they value the contributions of nonprofits to our community," NPC founder Liana Toscanini said.

The NPC is accepting donations of products and services through March 31.

Nonprofits and their board members are encouraged to bid on practical items they might not normally be able to afford such as consulting, billboard advertising, bylaw review, event photography or marketing services. 

The public can also bid on everything from local honey to a week on Cape Cod to a "microneedling" rejuvenating skin treatment. Visit npcberkshires.org to learn more and connect to the auction.
