A Partner With Our CommunityCommon Sense Business Solutions is Focused on Helping Local Non-Profits
Common Sense Business Solutions is committed to playing a positive role in our local community.
One of the ways we accomplish this goal is by regularly donating commercial business multifunction copy systems, services, and supplies to local non-profit organizations.
Every non-profit organization is tasked with using their limited budgets and resources to serve their base causes and therefore they rely on charitable donations of many necessary materials and services to help support their causes.
Local Non-Profit Organization Supported by CSBS
We are proud to donate copying and printing equipment and services to local non-profit organizations doing great work in our local area.
Shown below are a sampling of the organizations we support and we welcome your partnership in supporting these great organizations in every way possible.
Supporting Animals in Need
Forgotten Felines of Sonoma County
Forgotten Felines of Sonoma County focuses on cats that are not “owned” and have little to no chance of being spayed, neutered, or receiving medical attention.
These cats are our county’s most vulnerable; they are the most likely to be neglected and they are the most likely to be forgotten.
Since 1990, we have been the guardians, protectors, and advocates for the unowned feral, unowned stray, and unowned community cats in our county. We have spayed and neutered more than 35,000 cats, provided vital medical services, and given second and third chances for cats through our foster, adoption, and relocation programs.”

Law Enforcement Chaplaincy
Law Enforcement Chaplaincy in Sonoma County lists their mission as follows; Our mission is to respond to requests from law enforcement and provide immediate emotional support and follow up care to them and to the members of our community who have suffered tragedy and loss. We are an interfaith community of compassionate volunteers without religious, political, or legal agendas.
Officers, Deputies, Firefighters, and Emergency Services see a lot of pain every day. It’s a non-stop world of emergencies, sudden deaths, crimes, accidents and disasters. It is the job of law enforcement to run toward the danger when others are running away. In the normal course of work, law enforcement encounters citizens who are injured, shocked, bereft, and disoriented. This is where the Law Enforcement Chaplaincy of Sonoma County comes in. We train and deploy over 70 volunteer chaplains who are on the streets, day and night, providing emotional support to those who serve.
