About Church Resources...

Church Resources is one of Australia's largest not-for-profit aggregated buying groups, enabling supply solutions exclusively for not-for-profit organisations. CR is an entity of the Australian Catholic Bishop’s Conference, the body that administers the Catholic Church in Australia, giving us the capacity to continually grow our services to Members. Although we started out assisting the Church – hence our name – our services have grown to support all Australian not-for-profit organisations, both faith-based and secular, regardless of size or location.

Procurement solutions just for NFPs

CR exists solely to serve the supply needs of the NFP community with procurement solutions across virtually all categories. Our 16-year history of specialised, one-stop procurement services has enabled NFPs of all sizes, in all sectors, to save time, minimise costs and gain efficiency in their purchasing processes.

It makes more sense to buy with CR because we:

  • Find ways you can achieve consistent value on all goods and services
  • Improve your buying processes with the efficiency of one-stop procurement, simplified reporting and consolidated delivery
  • Give you access to a huge range leading brands at very competitive pricing that is usually only available to large corporate organisations
  • Provide friendly, specialist advice to make product research/selection easier, more efficient and better suited to your strategic needs
  • Manage supplier relationships on your behalf so you can stay focused on achieving your core mission
  • Optimise your procurement with free benchmarking and tender negotiation advice
  • Minimise organizational risk with expert advice to secure the safest, best quality and best value products for your NFP
