“What if instead, nonprofits operated from a position of abundance—the notion that working together can achieve more than working alone?”

This is the question posed by Art Taylor, President and CEO of BBB’s

Nonprofits could greatly benefit from collaborating with each other because they are often both oriented toward similar missions – which is to achieve greater, social good.

However, because nonprofits operate on small budgets – compared to for-profits that also focus on achieving social good – there is a greater need for these organizations to access additional resources, which can be achieved through sharing. This includes sharing ideas, working on projects together, and prototyping together to develop solutions more efficiently and effectively.

Some of the important factors that should be considered when nonprofits engage each other to collaborate might having a “vision” for the future of the organization; ensuring that both organizations involved are set up to succeed; discovering how each organization can support the other and balance its weaknesses; and considering collaborations with “non-traditional” partners.
