This webinar will focus on how to assess your organization’s readiness for partnership, as well as your partner’s potential readiness. We will begin by providing guidance for organizational self-assessment including financial stress-testing, staff and board leadership capacity, program sustainability, marketing/communications impact, and infrastructure needed to fulfill mission. Once this has been done, it’s time to identify and assess potential partners. We will share a road map to beginning these conversations, share key criteria for assessing appropriate partners, and discuss the importance of selecting partners that align with your organizational strategy and will increase mission impact. During this session, we will also discuss how organizations might initiate conversations with funders around supporting this work. This webinar will be most useful for organizational leadership, on both the staff and board level. Funders are also welcome to attend.
