About Us

We Have Been Serving Members for 20 years…….providing them deep savings!

Purchasing Partners of America, also known as PPA, is a national group purchasing organization founded in 1999 by five Colorado non-for profit organizations. During the years PPA has grown into a nationally recognized and unique venture that has saved its members large amounts of money through negotiated contracts for food, office supplies, technology, and a host of other goods and services.

Today, Purchasing Partners of America is privately operated by one of its founders and is a venture operating within United Social Enterprises Inc., a Colorado corporation created by Howard Shiffman, former CEO for Griffith Centers for Children.

Purchasing Partners of America serves non-profit organizations, a growing number of for-profit businesses and community-minded individuals that are interested in supporting the non-profit sector by purchasing through PPA’s negotiated contracts.
