Strategic Partnering

Nonprofits are finding now more than ever that partnering with other organizations can be beneficial to long-term productivity and impact. Although partnering may involve simple informal networks and information sharing sessions, many nonprofits are exploring more complex arrangements. These include applying for joint funding, coordinating services, or even merging organizations into a new structural entity. These decisions require targeted assessments, research, and collaboration to navigate through common challenges and pitfalls.

Participants will:

  • Explore the benefits and challenges of partnering with other organizations
  • Determine their organization’s readiness to effectively engage in a partnering arrangement with other organizations.
  • Explore the pros and cons of various collaborative arrangements in order to identify potential models for moving forward.
  • Identify and develop key leadership skills that support effective partnerships
  • Develop an understanding of additional resources available from CNE to support collaborative efforts

This training is well suited for leadership staff and board members considering any kind of partnership with another organization.
