Resource Renewal Project

Resource Renewal Project (RRP) is a stewardship initiative designed to strengthen the financial health of nonprofit organizations through procurement best practices, more efficient processes, and reduced costs.

RRP is a program based on, and supported by community. By bringing different non-profit organizations together from across the country, RRP is able to create savings and processes that are simply not possible for individual organizations.

Through your tireless efforts and dedication you have found countless ways to support your community. We know that you don’t do this to get something in return, but we know you deserve to be recognized. No one could ever repay your time and commitment, but RRP through many of our partners would like to try. Many of our programs extend the same discounts and saving received by our members to you, the people who make a difference every day.

FAQs

RRP was created in 2004 when a group of 15 churches and schools asked Coleman Group Consulting to help evaluate and select prefered suppliers to reduce expenses and improve services. With our assistance, this group was able to mobilize the power of community, earning increased savings, better customer support, and bonus add-on services from suppliers - the only item that changed was the price.
