Do you depend on another organization to help you fulfill your mission? It may be as simple as the high school's community service program sending you 20 volunteers every semester. Or maybe you get to use meeting space for free at the nonprofit across town. Once a collaborative effort grows from a one-time favor into something more long-term, it's time to make the relationship more formal. This does not have to be complex or time consuming. Join us on August 22nd for a live webinar as veteran grant writer Cheryl Kester shares her tips on forming successful nonprofit partnerships.
