Sustained Collaboration is a powerful strategic tool for nonprofit leaders to build resilience and increase their social impact. I’d like nonprofit leaders and clergy to: 1. Learn about the types of sustained collaboration available, including mergers, asset transfers, shared service arrangements, shared projects, and alliances. 2. Consider these types of collaborations as strategic tools to (a) embark on a strategic transformation, (b) establish new programs or improve and expand existing programs, (c) develop new efficiencies through shared assets, (d) create policy wins, (e) encourage innovation, and (f) produce better quality outcomes for clients and the community.
