1. Start a Conversation
Your organization holds an internal conversation about potential long-term partnerships. You identify the organization(s) with which you’re interested in collaborating.
2. Reach Out
Using tools and resources provided by Arizona Together for Impact, you can initiate a conversation with these organizations. You may seek financial support from the Impact Fund to assist with the costs associated with these “seed” conversations.
3. Contact Us
If all organizations agree to formally explore the possibility of a permanent collaboration, you contact Arizona Together for Impact. We can assist by helping you engage an experienced consultant or facilitator, and by providing funding for a portion of the exploration costs.
4. Apply for Funding
If organizations agree to a permanent collaboration (program integration, office consolidation or merger), you may request financial support from the Impact Fund for a portion of the costs of implementation.
5. The End Result
When nonprofits join together to maximize the impact of their work, they have the potential to realize improved organizational and financial capabilities, provide expanded or deeper services, and more effectively serve their constituents and the greater community.
