About Us

We’re on a mission to reduce your operating costs!

The number one reason charter schools close is related to financial deficiencies.

BuyQ’s mission is to support quality public education in our nation’s charter schools by reducing operational costs and providing resources to inspire innovation and financial sustainability.

Who we are:

BuyQ is the only group purchasing organization devoted specifically to charter schools. Originally founded in 2012 as an initiative of the Colorado League of Charter Schools, BuyQ is now an independent, mission-driven company focused on serving charter schools throughout the country. BuyQ’s experience, knowledge, and passion for the distinct needs of charter schools and their students sets us apart from other group purchasing organizations.

What we do:

BuyQ leverages the combined purchasing power of 5,000+ charter schools to deliver significant savings and other benefits specifically for charter schools. In coordination with a committee of charter schools representatives, BuyQ selects group purchasing vendors through an open and competitive RFP process that ensures charter schools receive the greatest value available on the national market and the lowest possible total cost of ownership without sacrificing quality and service.

Our commitment to you:

At BuyQ, we put the needs of charter schools and their students ahead of everything else in all that we do. That includes adhering to a strict code of conduct that governs our contracting process. This ensures that our awarded vendors have been selected according to ethical purchasing standards that put schools first.
