Learning to Share Your Sandbox: Creating Effective Partnerships

9:00 - 12:00 p.m. 3/21/2018
Nonprofit Center of Northeast Florida

With more organizations chasing scarcer funds, donors are choosing to invest their resources into projects that exhibit higher levels of community collaboration. For non-profits that operate in "survival mode," it's often a challenge to view similar community organizations as anything other than a competitor vying for the same pots of funding. It is critical that each organization evaluate their mission in light of their community needs and available resources. This three-hour seminar will focus on fundamental concepts of understanding, developing, and maintaining strategic partnerships that will ensure long-term organizational success.

At the end of this session, you will be able to:
1. Establish and understanding of collaborations versus partnerships
2. Learn how to establish organizational needs prior to reaching out to potential partners
3. Identify mutually beneficial partnerships versus those that consume resources
4. Outline partnership agreements for community or grant writing purposes
5. Learn effective methods to develop and maintain strategic partnerships
