The Power of Partnerships (Julie Alsup)

Partnerships and collaboration are strategic alliances between nonprofits that are intended to achieve greater impact than any organization could generate on its own. Shared services, mergers and joint programming are just some of the ways that organizations can combine resources to tackle deeply entrenched and complex social problems. The secret to building organizational relationships is having effective conversations. These types of conversations between organizations create, build, and sustain relationships. Effective conversations can only take place if candor, collaboration, and trust exist within an organization’s culture.
