A Year to Remember

When it comes to community development, we often say that the numbers don’t really tell the story. This is not one of those times.

Catalyst Fund Report: Advice to Strengthen Nonprofit Mergers and Collaborations

The Catalyst Fund for Nonprofits was created to demonstrate how strategic mergers and collaborations can help nonprofits pursue their missions. The Fund's new report, Advice to Strengthen Strategic Mergers and Collaborations, captures knowledge and experience gained from five years of work with more than 80 Boston-area nonprofits. The free, online resource includes "four truths of nonprofit collaborations" as well as step-by-step guidance for nonprofits, and reflections from funders on support for this work.

The Fund was itself a collaboration of The Boston FoundationLISC BostonThe Hyams FoundationThe Kresge Foundationand United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley, managed by Nonprofit Finance Fund.
