National Business Products Industry

32 Years of Support - $130 Million Raised                                                                                                     
                                 
In 1983, a group of corporate leaders banded together to form the National Office Products Council, an alliance of industry executives dedicated to supporting City of Hope. In 2014, Council Leadership decided to change its name to the National Business Products Council.  This was done to reflect the inclusion of growing sectors within the industry in the areas of technology, break room, jan/san and industrial.
 
Since its founding, the annual business products  industry fundraising campaign has raised $130 million through its annual support efforts that include employee giving drives, company hosted golf outings and  events as well as product sales and customer promotions.  Over 200 business products companies from every segment of the industry - retailers, independent dealers, wholesalers, buying groups, manufacturers and sales reps - support the campaign each and every year.
 
The 2014 Connecting Hope campaign, honoring Steve Schmidt, President, International from Office Depot raised an impressive $12.4 million for City of Hope.
 
Fundraising activities are well underway with the 2015 campaign “Hope Matters” honoring Steve Sakumoto, Vice President/GM from Hewlett-Packard.  The Spirit of Life Gala honoring Steve is on Septement 17, 2015 at the Chicago Hilton Hotel.
 
 
The Power of Hope
City of Hope’s mission is to cure and prevent cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases.
 
Groundbreaking discoveries at City of Hope already have led to treatments that save lives worldwide. City of Hope’s dedication to compassion is spelled out in its credo: “There is no profit in curing the body if, in the process, we destroy the soul.”
 
With the help of loyal industry volunteers, today City of Hope is poised to make progress like never before.
