Mac’s List Partners with 501 Commons to Better Support Regional Nonprofits


Mac’s List is pleased to announce a new partnership with 501 Commons, a Pacific Northwest nonprofit organization that provides services to amplify the strengths of nonprofits in the region. The two organizations, both established and trusted local human resource vendors, will work to share their complementary services with nonprofits in the region.

“Mac’s List is a great tool for talent acquisition, but there’s a lot more to human resources than finding the right employees,” noted Mac Prichard, founder and publisher of Mac’s List. “That’s why we’re excited to partner with 501 Commons, who offer a suite of services to support the many HR needs of nonprofit organizations.”

501 Commons executive director Nancy Long sees the serendipity in both organizations stretching their geographic reach – Mac’s List to increase job listing access for Washington organizations and 501 Commons to deliver more services in western Oregon. “We have benefited from using Mac’s list and look forward to spreading the word about its Washington listing service,” said Long. “We also appreciate the collaboration with Mac’s List staff who are focused on sharing resources that will benefit the communities they serve.”

501 Commons is a registered nonprofit organization. One of their key services is consulting support for other nonprofits to improve and streamline HR practices. And they’ve tiered their services to fit different needs. From a 15-minute phone consultation, to project-based contracts, to a fully outsourced HR management solution, 501 Commons offers the HR services nonprofits need to focus on their broader social missions.

In addition to HR support, 501 Commons also helps nonprofits with financial services, data systems, technology planning and infrastructure, management consulting, and leadership development.

The partnership between Mac’s List and 501 Commons includes no financial relationship between the organizations; rather, it is based on responding to the needs we’ve encountered in the local nonprofit community.

“Our nonprofit clients have consistently voiced a need for HR support,” explained Prichard. “With a 30-year track record of results, 501 Commons is a partner we can trust to deliver those services to organizations in our community.”
