Can collaborating help your organization achieve its objectives?

In this challenging environment, nonprofits are considering collaborations as a strategy to sustain and/or enhance their missions.  Such collaborations can range from simple cooperation to more strategic forms including affiliations, alliances, joint ventures or mergers.

When nonprofits consider collaborating they often have questions like:

  • Is my organization ready for collaboration?
  • How can collaboration help my organization achieve its strategic objectives?
  • Who might be good partners?
  • Can we protect our staff, donor base, and brand name?
  • How do we evaluate our choices?
  • What are the legal implications of collaborating?
  • What can we learn from other others?

To help nonprofits address these issues and other questions, National Executive Service Corps (NESC) has partnered with The Fairfield County Community Foundation’s Center for Nonprofit Excellence (CNE) to offer this Nonprofit Collaboration Workshop.
