The Back Office Cooperative has helped
over 150 nonprofits evaluate administrative costs, combine spends and reduce expenses without sacrificing service and quality.

The Back Office Cooperative improves operating performance by increasing buying power, providing solutions with highly efficient procurement and accounting processes, and creating an environment for sharing best practices. The knowledge and savings that BOC generates for members allows them to increase impact in the communities they serve.

Each year we deliver millions of dollars back into the
nonprofit sector by offering flexible, customized solutions
and group buying programs.

“At first, the savings BOC provides sounds too good to be true, but the Head of Finance at my former company kept recommending them. I thought it must be worth exploring. I found that BOC was one of the few companies that saves you money across many different areas, not just one.”


“Every CFO should meet with BOC. If you think you’re too busy, you will find that BOC actually frees up time for you and your team. The onboarding process is simple, and they keep you updated on results.”

DON KRASKA, CFO / Envision Unlimited

“BOC helped us to decrease waste removal costs by securing a lower cost contract leveraged by their higher volume usage. BOC is just a great organization helping its members with cost saving efforts, and I highly encourage anyone to explore membership with them.”

KARA TEEPLE, CEO / Lawrence Hall
