Multi-Organizational Alliances: Maximizing Impact
Thursday | 2:30 PM - 3:45 PM
Topics covered: Collaboration / Partnership
In communities across the country, nonprofits are forming multi-organizational alliances to overcome common challenges, leverage economies of scale and increase their collective impact. Recent research described in the Stanford Social Innovation Review reveals that high functioning alliances share common practices and are guided by a consistent set of principles that generate powerful results. In 2009, Wellspring Consulting helped the Alameda County Alliance for Arts Learning Leadership revise its governance structure so that it could better serve its members’ individual and mutual interests. Today, more than 50 organizations and 90 individuals collaborate through the Alliance to carry out arts integration projects and advocate for public support of arts education. Presenters will share research findings and practical real-world examples you can use to build effective alliances and generate large scale change in your community.
