In response to requests from local nonprofits for help in learning how to approach collaboration, a group of 18 grantmakers in Cleveland pooled their resources to develop and implement a three-phase project to strengthen human service offerings in their area. In the end, eight nonprofits strategically restructured their operations into four, and a network of consultants was formed to support collaboration efforts. Drawing on the insights of a diverse panel of organizations involved in the collaboration and the conclusions of a written case study, participants will explore what works in supporting nonprofit strategic restructuring from the perspective of funders, nonprofits and consultants.
