Don’t run and hide

For many organizations, collaborating with other non-profit partners on projects and possibly even funding ventures seems daunting. However, so many non-profit leaders are maxed-out on time and resources trying to put together programs, funding, and manage teams. Working together can be a great way to do more with less and share our limited resources fairly.

Having strong partnerships can also help us weather change and uncertainty. As Heraclitus reminds us: “The only thing that is constant is change.” Since change is inevitable, it’s worth asking ourselves if there are opportunities to partner with other groups to help everyone achieve program, funding, or staff goals.
