Overview
Given the challenges for nonprofits to find high-quality and affordable space, Build with Purpose, added the creation of nonprofit centers to our real estate portfolio in 2010. Nonprofit centers are facilities that house multiple nonprofit organizations in the same physical site. Nonprofit centers provide affordable quality workspace, shared meeting and common space; and shared services and resources. They also provide an opportunity for nonprofits to collaborate and partner on new initiatives.

The Metuchen Nonprofit Center, 224 Main Street, Metuchen, NJ

The Metuchen Nonprofit Center opened in May 2010 with Build with Purpose and two other nonprofits- Literacy Volunteers of New Jersey and Women Helping Women – sharing space in the same building.  Located at 224 Main Street in Metuchen, the facility includes individual office space for the nonprofits as well as shared space including a conference room, a lounge area and a kitchen. Shared resources include printers and photocopiers, administrative staff and volunteers.  Build with Purpose is working to create nonprofit centers in other areas in New Jersey. As one of the first nonprofit centers in New Jersey, Build with Purpose is proud to lead the way and to allow our own experience to shape the way we develop nonprofit centers in the future.
