The Needs Clearing House
The Needs Clearing House, Inc. (“NCH”) is a Connecticut non-stock corporation formed as a Public Charity recognized by the Internal Revenue Service under Section 501c3. Specifically, NCH matches the needs of charitable organizations with individuals, businesses and other charities willing and able (in whole or in part) to meet those needs. In this way, the NCH helps charities help the needy. In addition, the NCH has offered help to individuals wanting to help themselves; offering a “hand up” (as opposed to a “hand out”), whenever possible. NCH fulfills the organization’s purpose by providing a “clearing house” service free of charge, to facilitate the identification and matching of charitable needs (for charitable organizations and individuals) with resources to meet those needs.
