Sustained Collaboration Network Launch

We are proud to announce the launch of the Sustained Collaboration Network (SCN), a national network of grantmaking initiatives that support nonprofit mergers, joint ventures, programmatic and administrative partnerships, etc. In the Stanford Social Innovation Review (SSIR) article, “Building Capacity for Sustained Collaboration,” readers will find stories from communities that have experimented with pooled funding models for supporting sustained collaboration, two case studies from Los Angeles and New York, and a list of emerging practices for other communities and funders seeking to emulate this approach. The time is ripe for funders and nonprofits to begin thinking beyond the immediate COVID-19 crisis and contemplate the structural reform needed to create a more sustainable, resilient sector that can maximize community impact.
