Free Series on “Power of Partnership” in San Francisco (Feb 10)

January 21, 2009

Join Craigslist Foundation, The Foundation Center, CompassPoint Nonprofit Services, and Northern California Grantmakers for the third “Power of Partnership” quarterly program series. This free series showcases successful models of collaboration, with an emphasis on lessons learned, pitfalls to avoid, and opportunities to network with other professionals. Refreshments will be provided. The current economic crisis has brought nonprofit mergers and other forms of partnership into the spotlight, and many in the nonprofit sector are looking at these forms of strategic restructuring as an economic solution. However nonprofit partnerships are not just a last ditch survival tactic during an economic downturn. Partnerships provide a strategic opportunity for compatible organizations to join forces for greater social impact. For our third event we welcome David La Piana, author of the Nonprofit Mergers Workbook, The Nonprofit Strategy Revolution, and founder of La Piana Associates, a management-consulting firm specializing in nonprofit strategic restructuring. From informal partnerships and knowledge/resource sharing to formal mergers, David will address what to expect from a partnership and when it is a good strategic choice. David will discuss the practical tools and processes that lead to successful partnerships, as well as the role of funders in fostering and supporting partnerships.
