Community is our bottom line
HCG supports communities by empowering local, sustainable and efficient economies. The organization helps cities and towns, schools, nonprofits and businesses get the most value by pooling their buying power. The organization makes it easy to save money, time and effort on major and everyday purchases, from electricity to arts and crafts supplies. HCG is a different kind of service organization. We receive no tax funded subsidies. We support ourself entirely with fee for service offerings which, in turn, support community-benefiting, public-spirited programs.
