The Sustained Collaboration Network Training Institute


The new Sustained Collaboration Network (SCN)—a network of 7+ local pooled funds supporting greater collaboration among nonprofits—is hosting a first-ever online institute for consultants engaged in this work. The SCN Institute will feature prominent speakers and trainers who have deep knowledge and direct experience with this work, whether as funders, nonprofits, lawyers, accountants, etc.


At a time of growing interest in the value of nonprofit sustained collaborations, identifying and growing the national pool of qualified consultants to responsibly guide them through this vital—yet sensitive—work is essential. The goals of the SCN Institute are to: build consultants’ capacity for this work; begin to create some standards of practice for this field; and create an environment for peer learning and networking opportunities.


The Institute targets consultants already engaged in this work in some capacity, who want to build their knowledge, networks, and skills in this area. A brief application is required and consultants must be selected to participate.


The SCN Institute will be comprised of a series of 6 learning sessions in January-February 2021. It will be held online and will be recorded for asynchronous learning, but live participation is highly encouraged as the sessions will be interactive.


Register for the six-session institute here: Upon completion, you will receive a “certification of participation” and will be placed in preferred status among the SCN initiatives across the country.
