COMMON VISION, COMMON RESOURCES
Nonprofit organizations face volatile financial markets, limited funding opportunities, and increased demand for services. For many nonprofits, the solution comes in the form of collaboration and consolidating their “back office” operations to streamline their efforts. Sharing services is a key strategy for supporting nonprofit effectiveness. Sharing overhead costs and eliminating redundancies across organizations helps the nonprofit sector be more efficient and use limited funding dollars wisely.
Joint efforts allow nonprofits to share space, technology, and financial and human resources operations. Shared services increase purchasing power and reduce costs, increase operating efficiency and reduce risk, improve access to high-quality services and foster the collaborations that lead to program innovation.
