Building Collaborative Partnerships, Making it happen

October 30, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am


Building on a previous program, this interactive workshop will provide the nuts-and-bolts information you need to help your organization move forward in building effective partnerships. Attendees will learn the specifics of creating a successful collaboration, whether between two nonprofits or with a business or governmental partner, including:

  • Legal aspects, including a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that protects all parties in the relationship
  • Shared budgeting, and the role of a fiscal agent
  • Defining specific areas of function for each partner/collaborator
  • Markers of success – accountability and outcome measurement

This workshop is intended for nonprofit staff and board members; educational institutions; governmental entities and business members seeking nonprofit partners.
