The Best Moments to Merge for Nonprofit Success

Presented by Anne Wallestad, Katie Smith Milway, and John Maconga

There are half a dozen moments in the life cycle of any nonprofit organization that create natural opportunities to discuss the possibilities of organizational restructuring, strategic alliances, or even outright mergers. Rather than viewing these moments as a sign of weakness, one should view them as an opportunity to advance your organization’s mission. This SSIR Live! webinar will help you reflect on where your organization is today, where it’s headed, and how a restructuring, strategic alliance, or merger could help make your organization more effective. We will share nonprofit market data, explore several case studies, and hear from a nonprofit that seized upon a “moment to merge.”
