SeaChange — through its affiliated funds — makes seed, exploratory, and implementation grants to encourage and support mergers, joint-ventures, shared back office, programmatic alliances and other types of formal, sustained collaboration between nonprofits. Although we will consider supporting collaborations in every issue area and involving organizations of all sizes, we only makes grants in situations where independent, flexible, and fast funding can play a material role in the exploration, structuring or successful completion of a potential deal. We will not consider grant requests for collaborative transactions  that have been completed, or that appear to be on-track and well-funded. As a neutral, credible, experienced outside party willing to invest time and money, SeaChange seeks to work constructively with the funders, boards, and leaders of organizations considering sustained collaborations as a catalyst for sensible action.
