Especially in this pandemic era, to survive nonprofits must be creative and flexible - and many want to explore mergers, back office consolidations, and partnerships that are more than MOUs or informal agreements. These nonprofit “shapes” are options of strategic re-structuring. This free workshop will overview these options, including ways to find out more what might work for a particular nonprofit. Speakers will be Carrie Harlow, Nonprofit Sustainability Initiative; Jennifer Vanore, PhD, UniHealth Foundation (managing funder of NSI), as well as past NSI participants Brittney Weissman, NAMI Greater Los Angeles County; and Joan Maltese, PhD, Child Development Institute, who will share lessons learned with strategic re-structuring. The workshop’s co-hosts are Valley Nonprofit Resources, Community Foundation of the Valleys and NSI. Nonprofit EDs and other leaders from the San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valleys are encouraged to bring along a Board member to this event, since Board support is essential for success.
