Fostering Collaborative Partnerships

Nonprofit organizations are frequently called upon to work together in partnerships or alliances to meet the community's needs or to apply jointly for funding. These interactions can range from networking and information sharing, to simple cooperation and coordination of services, to full collaboration where achieving a common goal supersedes individual agency interests. Board members and staff participating in this course will examine the pitfalls and best practices of partnership with a focus on practical tools for making partnership work. Students will assess the strengths and weaknesses of various collaboration models through case study examples and will develop specific tools to support their current or future collaborative activities.
