Grants to Toledo area, Ohio nonprofit organizations to support the formation and exploration of alliances, mergers, and collaborations. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to submitting a full application. The purpose of this program is to enable Toledo-area nonprofits to achieve more effective and efficient use of financial and human resources, gain greater long-term financial stability and enhance social impact.
The Strategic Alliance Partnership encourages community-level systems thinking to strengthen nonprofit capacity and improve service delivery. Since the process of forming partnerships can be complicated, the Strategic Alliance Partnership will make funds available for non-recurring costs associated with feasibility studies, professional or technical assistance fees, as well as staff and board training. Qualified applicant organizations must have a demonstrated track record in providing quality services, board and staff support from all participating organizations for the alliance and the organizational capacity to carry out the proposed project successfully.
Goals of Strategic Alliance Partnership funding:
-To create economies of scale among nonprofits, resulting in cost savings and/or service enhancements (e.g. shared administrative services, shared staff to serve common constituencies, costs related to mergers).
-To strengthen infrastructure, management capacity and/or service delivery systems by supporting alliances among nonprofit organizations.
-To encourage collaborative partnerships that employ comprehensive strategies to strengthen community systems (such as improved education, employment, housing and/or health).
Previously funded grant proposals included requests for:
-Consultants and expert advice on mergers and/or consolidations of two or more organizations.
-Consultation and implementation for new and improved service delivery systems.
-Information technology assistance to consolidate “back office” operations (e.g. financial systems,
-Assistance with creation of shared benefit packages, policies, training and other human resources costs.
-Expertise creating coordinated communication systems and advocacy strategies.
-Purchase, installation and training of automated systems for use by multiple partners.
-Planning and implementation of shared staffing.
