This is the first of three webinars exploring the idea of strategic partnerships. Our goal is to acquaint executive directors, board members and key staff with an array of strategic partnership options and related principles and practices.
Given the challenges currently facing nonprofits in their programs, finances, and operations, collaborative strategies have never been more important. Nonprofits across the sector are demonstrating how highly integrated collaborations – ranging from consolidation of administrative functions up to full integration via merger – can maximize efficiency and enhance mission impact.
This interactive webinar will provide an overview of the wide range of possibilities that exist on The Collaborative Map. Drawing from case studies and 20+ years of La Piana experience leading nonprofits through strategic restructuring processes, participants will hear concrete examples of how organizations have approached decisions about strategic partnerships to accelerate and amplify mission impact.
