Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely nothing. No sign up fees. In fact, it costs NOT to join!


Great! We will notify your vendor, at your request, of your access to our contract and its improved pricing.

No, business is done as usual directly through the vendor partners.

CORD covers all areas of ministry from supply chain purchasing (food service, office products, janitorial supplies, etc.) to asset management (daily operations, technology and communications, etc.) and risk management (safety supplies and instruction, insurance, etc.) plus more!

We work with only the best producers and service providers. No sacrifice of quality or level of service is necessary to achieve our excellent values. Unlike other companies, our vendor agreements are negotiated at the highest levels of management for committed partnerships.


While the greatest savings come from utilizing the entire CORD program, there is no obligation to use only CORD vendors.

You can expect your former vendor to try and win you back by slashing prices on a line item or two, then over time they will raise your price again. CORD will help you. Have them give us a call.
