  1. The time has come for nonprofits across the country to step back and leap forward with a “merger mindset” for the greater good of the lives they touch and long-term sustainability. Thanks for partnering with us on this mission-critical discussion!

  2. Merger depends upon the answer to many questions, for example :

    1. Are the missions either compatible or complimentary ?

    2. Are the Boards of Directors similar in their policy practices ?

    3. Are the staffs similar in their culture and operations ?

    4. Are the finances and financial procedures ones that can be molded, at least ultimately ?

    These questions also arise in the areas of Human Resources, Development, Quality, Compliance and Risk.

    These examples are not exhaustive, so it becomes evident that a great deal of Due Diligence, involving staff , board and hired consultants precede Merger, none of which can fail to be considered.
