With increasing demands for services and declining resources, nonprofits face enormous challenges. Collaboration or a merger with another nonprofit are two different options to address this issue.
What is collaboration? It is a process where two or more organizations work together to realize shared goals and results that cannot be obtained by working alone.
Various forms of collaboration range from sharing programs, services, development, advocacy, staffing and locations all the way up to and including merging organizations.
ESC consultants can help your organization explore the various ways you might collaborate with another organization and work with you to develop your collaboration process.
Should you consider merging your nonprofit with another, ESC can help you evaluate the decision to see if it is the right one for you. Should you decide to proceed with a merger, ESC’s skilled, experienced consultants can facilitate the process.
