Nonprofits and governmental agencies face enormous pressure to deliver more housing services with dwindling resources. In many cases the only way forward is to merge with another like-minded organizations — to combine staff, leadership, expertise, program specializations, and geographies to better serve the people in their region.
Going forward our society cannot support all of the housing entities that currently compete for the same resources. We must re-align. Where possible, we must merge. This report uses MAP for Nonprofit’s Realignment Spectrum to outline and illustrate the seven ways nonprofits and other agencies can realign:
- Administrative consolidation
- Joint programming
- Program transfer
- Parent subsidiary
- Joint venture
The report features 18 case studies from across Minnesota. Find out more when you download the “Models for Mergers and Collaborations” report. Interested in speaking to Greater Minnesota Housing Fund about the ideas you read about in the report? Please reach out to our technical assistance team.
