Being a part of an organization that has a focus larger than itself can be amazingly fulfilling.

Your non-profit has a mission to fulfill and important work to do. But your members have limited time and resources, and you rely on the surrounding community for support. 

Finding that support can be difficult and hiring a dedicated donor cultivator can be out of your organization’s financial reach. But CPP Connect has helped do some of that hard work for you.

We’ve found local businesses that want to work with organizations just like yours. They’ve registered on our site to tell us who they are, where they are, and how they want to work with you. We invite you to search our ever-growing database of vetted prospects to help find your future partners.


It’s not just Charity. It’s Good Business, too.

Small businesses can have limited budgets. You want to promote your company, but often your marketing funds aren’t as great as you would like them to be.

That’s why smart small businesses work with local non-profits as way to do good, and receive visibility. Being affiliated with a popular local cause generates goodwill and support in your backyard. It adds that extra incentive for neighborhood residents to choose your restaurant, your gift shop, your market or bank over another.

Through CPP Connect, small businesses now have contact with local non-profits. Just register and fill out a profile form. We’ll then put out the word for you for free, reaching a large number of organizations who’ve paid a small fee to find companies like yours.




In her day job, Crys works at the intersection of health care, advocacy, and quality. She’s an analyst. An organizer. A process nerd with the desire to do good. And an efficiency expert that aims to make things easier, not less effective or impactful.

Her love of philanthropy combined with that wonky background drove her to look for a website or software application that highlighted neighborhood businesses that were interested in partnering with nonprofit organizations. For weeks, she Googled. Searched Bing and Yahoo. Networked with friends in the tech and nonprofit services worlds.

And here’s what she found–Nothing.

No single solution directed community organizations to local businesses who were willing to support their work. Which is why she took the leap and created Community Philanthropy Partners- CPP Connect.
