Interested in becoming a NAM Business Partner?

Business Partners are individual consultants / local businesses with an interest to promote and support the mission and values of the Nonprofit Association of the Midlands, and the nonprofit community in Nebraska and western Iowa.

When you become a Business Partner of NAM, we pledge to:
  • Give your business preferred status on all our business needs, bids for services and bids for supplies to our Business Partners.
  • Work to connect you to members through a variety of methods, including face-to face networking and multi-media opportunities.
In turn, we expect our partners to:
  • Offer excellent customer service to our nonprofit members.
  • Offer a significant discount on services provided to our nonprofit members.
We offer three partnership levels to meet your budget:
  • Consultant Level* | $150/year (receives same benefits as Business Level 2)
  • Business Level 2 | $300/year
  • Business Level 1 | $750/year

* Consultant Level partnership is typically reserved for work-at-home, single employee businesses or consultants.

This is what you get for your investment as our Business Partner:

Level One: $750

Your business will be featured in our digital communication: NAM Marketplace e-mail blasts, social media (as we are able), and as a featured business partner on our website. ($400 value)  Your organization will be listed on our business partner website page, where all Level One business partners will be listed alphabetically, before Level Two and Consultant business partners.

You will have the first opportunity to sponsor annual nonprofit training events.  We host major nonprofit conferences in Kearney and La Vista each year, as well as a seminar on grant writing in Omaha.  This is a great way to get your name and logo in front of nonprofit leaders.

You will receive 5 (five) scholarships for NAM-provided professional development training sessions of your choice for you, your staff or for a nonprofit of your choice (must be a NAM member.)  This offer excludes annual training events. (up to a $175 value)

We will allow use of our training and conference room for you to present a workshop covering relevant and useful information to our members.  We will advertise your workshop to our members and track RSVPs.  We are looking for effective presenters who can teach our members something they need to know to help run their nonprofit more effectively and efficiently.  (This is not a marketing or advertising opportunity.) ($350 value)

Your business will be allowed to send an email message to our mass mailing list (~6500) two times during the year (a $150-200 value).  This benefit must be coordinated with NAM staff prior distribution, and will be sent in accordance with our master communication plan.  We will send your content via our system so your content gets in front of our members, and doesn't got to the junk folder.  (NAM reserves the right to approve the final mailing to our members.)

Your business will be listed in our Annual Report to all members and business partners. ($35 value)

Employees from your business will receive training at the NAM member price (50% off).  This will help your business understand and communicate with the nonprofit community more effectively.  For example, if your employees are expected to sit on a nonprofit board, they can receive 50% off our Nonprofit BoardMasters courses. ($35-125 value)

All this adds up to a value of from $1145 to $1285 for your business!!

Level Two: $300

Your business will be featured in our digital communication: NAM Marketplace e-mail blasts, social media (as we are able), and as a featured business partner on our website. ($200 value)  Your organization will be listed on our business partner website, where all Level Two and Consultant business partners will be listed alphabetically, after Level One business partners.

You will receive 2 (two) scholarships for professional development training sessions of your choice for you, your staff or for a nonprofit of your choice (must be a NAM member.)  This offer excludes annual training events. (up to a $70 value)
