VBSR Non-Profit Accounts

Non Profits Fee Plan

 

Non-Profits are a natural fit for the Marketplace.

Many businesses want to continue supporting non-profits, even with smaller budgets. Accepting Marketplace Trade Dollars allows Non-Profits to keep purchasing power for needed goods and services.

How Can a Non-Profit Earn Trade Dollars?

  • Accept Donations
  • Get New Sponsors
  • Sell Advertising or Underwriting
  • List Extra Seats for Conferences and Workshops
  • Sell Goods that you Produce

How Can A Non-Profit Spend Trade Dollars?

  • Save Cash: Find a new local vendor who accepts Trade Dollars.
  • Grow: Start and Improve Programs, Buy Advertising for Events and Campaigns.
  • Plan An Event: Lower the cash costs of your Fundraising Events to leave more room in your budget for staffing and service.
  • Learn: Keep your staff skills up to date and improving by attending conferences and workshops.
  • Employee Benefits: An easy (and free!) employee benefit is to give your employees access to the Marketplace so they can freelance with other VBSR businesses.

Fine Print:

  • All offers must be 100% Trade Dollars Accepted for the Volunteer or 5 Employee Plan. If you would like to charge cash for partial payments, you’ll need a Basic, Advanced, or Unlimited Account (fees applicable).
  • If you choose the Volunteer or 5 Employee Plan with No Cash Fees, we ask that you list “VBSR Marketplace” and “Vermont Resilience Lab” (our legal name) as In-Kind Supporters of your organization.
  • All donations of Trade Dollars to 501c3s are treated the same as cash by the IRS.
  • All income is taxable and you will get a 1099B in any year you have earnings.
  • You are subject to the normal Governance terms, including the requirement to have a professional license if a service requires it and charge sales tax if necessary.
  • All accounts require a credit card for verification, even those with no fees. (We know that you’re not a spammer but this was the easiest way for the software to know.)
