3 Reasons Non Profit Organizations Must Partner
Lets face it, competition for scare dollars is everywhere.
Many non-profit organizations (NPO’s) are feeling increasing pressure to do more with less while government regulations are adding escalating complexity and administrative burden.
Donors are becoming either more selective or strategic and are being approached by a growing number of organizations for funds.
Governments, foundations and other agencies are demanding more strategic approaches by NPO’s to reduce financial risk, lever funding, augment participation of others and transition towards sustainability of these organizations.
It is necessary for NPO’s to partner because:
1. 2 + 2 = 7
2. The risk of no longer existing is significant
3. Government funders are not suggesting partnerships but rather demanding them! http://www.tbs-sct.gc.ca/rpp/2012-2013/inst/csd/csd02-eng.asp
Strategic partnerships between NPO’s are challenging but can be accomplished if approached in the correct manner and done for the right reasons.
