Presenter: Val Porter, Foundation Center Atlanta

Strategic collaborations, joint programming, and mergers are becoming more and more important to the nonprofit sector every day and understanding your options for working collaboratively to achieve mission-critical impact is a must for today’s nonprofit leaders.  The Foundation Center developed a new workshop that will walk you through the basics of collaboration and provide you with:

  • an understanding of why nonprofits are choosing collaboration
  • knowledge on the range of collaboration options available
  • a framework for the basic process steps in forging successful collaborative relationships
  • action steps for further exploration
  • access to model collaborations

The workshop will include an introduction to the Nonprofit Collaboration Database, Understanding Collaboration will connect you with tools to put your organization on the path to successful collaborative partnerships.  The talk will also address key tips on collaborative grantseeking.

This workshop is open to all: executive directors, board members, and organizational decision makers are encouraged to attend.

Val Porter is the Director of the Foundation Center’s Atlanta-based office which serves a nine-state region of the Southeast. For nearly two decades, she has worked in public service and nonprofit management, including serving on the executive team of the City of Atlanta’s branding campaign and overseeing Georgia’s largest publicly-funded program for the arts as Deputy Director for Fulton County Arts Council.

The workshop is free of charge, but we ask you to RSVP by registering below.
