When done well alliances, collaboration, or merger can help nonprofits better leverage their scarce resources, enhance services, increase fundraising, and become more cost-effective.  When poorly executed these forms of strategic restructuring can erode client, community, and employee faith in the organization.  If you are wondering if your nonprofit organization can bolster its capacity through strategic collaboration or are unclear about how to begin the exploration process, this workshop is for you.

Join our panel, Maria Fabula of CRC, Renny Fagan of Colorado Nonprofit Association and Melanie Falvo of United Way of Weld County, for their insights on collaboration.
