Nittany Co-Op is a non-profit helping other non-profits. We believe that our efforts to build up our area non-profits will have an enormous impact on the well-being of our community.
Welcome to Nittany Co-Op
We, at Nittany Co-Op, know what makes this town a special place. It’s the people - people who join together to achieve the goal of making the State College community better. Our Members - Greek Organizations, Local Nonprofits, Student Organizations and Alumni Groups - all share a passion for a particular cause. Whether it’s bringing shelter to those less fortunate or raising funds to fight pediatric cancer, our Members are fighting battles everyday to help others. Also leading this charge are our Vendors - local businesses that offer the products and services needed in order for our Members to operate strong organizations.
Where does Nittany Co-Op fit in? We match up the Members with the Vendors who can best help them achieve their objectives. We also manage the logistics between Members and Vendors, creating an efficient process of purchasing (many times at a discount for our Members), invoicing and submitting payments. By Nittany Co-Op handling these day-to-day tasks, it allows the Member organizations to focus on making their group stronger and more able to contribute to the well-being of our community.
Nittany Co-Op offers an “all hands in” approach. It’s about joining together individuals, groups and local businesses - encouraging bonds within our Member organizations and connecting Vendors to the Members they can help. With Nittany Co-Op supporting both Members and Vendors to make them both stronger units, we aim to build a successful cooperative community.
Nittany Co-Op fully supports the efforts of our local Greek Organizations. We understand the challenges of running a fraternity or sorority and are eager to assist in the operations of your organization.
Penn State Student Groups are an important part of the community. We strive to assist in many ways in order to make your group stronger, perform better and therefore have greater success.
