Effective Partnerships - Learn to Share the Sandbox
With more organizations chasing scarcer funds, funders are choosing to invest their resources into projects that exhibit higher levels of community collaboration. For non-profits that operate in “survival mode”, it’s often a challenge to view similar community organizations as anything other than a competitor vying for the same pots of funding. It is critical that each organization evaluate their mission in light of their community needs and available resources. Small Business Owners and Executive Directors and Board Members can use this seminar to learn to develop partnerships in preparation for submitting collaborative grant proposals. Facilitator Amanda Pearce will discuss collaborations and partnerships and why nonprofits must establish organizational needs before reaching out to potential partners. Learn how to identify mutually beneficial partnerships versus those that consume resources. Also, we will outline partnership agreements for community or grant writing purposes and you will learn effective methods to develop and maintain strategic partnerships. This three-hour seminar will focus on fundamental concepts of understanding, developing, and maintaining strategic partnerships that will ensure long-term organizational success.
