June Webinar Sale - 50% Off

special_offer_tag.jpgMergers, Acquisitions and Dissolutions

As nonprofits emerge from the Covid era, many are wondering what path forward provides the best possibility of continuing and improving their ability to fulfill their mission.  They have struggled with their finances.  They have lost staff.  The external world has changed.  For many executives and their boards, burnout is real.  And yet, the need for their work continues, and is often growing.

The return to relative normalcy provides an opportunity for nonprofits to consider whether they should emerge from the relative silo of their operations and expand their collaborations, perhaps even to the point of an actual merger with a complimentary organization.  Thinking about it can be an intimidating prospect, but may be necessary if the organizations want to continue and thrive.

Price: $44.50

That's 50% off its regular price of $89.

Offer expires June 30th. New subscribers can also start a FREE three-month trial subscription (an additional $17.95 value).
