 Procurement solutions by an NFP, for NFPs

Church Resources is the only national, not-for-profit (NFP) aggregated buying group in Australia that delivers supply solutions exclusively for NFPs.CR is an entity of the Australian 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 NFP organisations, both faith-based and secular, regardless of size or location.
