Merging for Good: A Case-Based Framework for Supporting Effective Nonprofit Amalgamations
Institute for Community Prosperity
March 16, 2021
Description / Summary
This is a framework for nonprofit organizations that may be considering embarking on a merger, or a similar form of amalgamation or consolidation. It is also for funders - government, foundations, corporate or individual donors - and other sector ‘capacity builders’ interested in supporting or advising on mergers and amalgamations. It is also the final report of a two-part chronicling of the creation of Trellis, a newly amalgamated Calgary-based human service organization, and is gleaned both from stakeholder in-the moment feedback and from those who have had an opportunity to reflect on mergers in the rear-view mirror, many years out.
