Coalitions can help nonprofits to work towards their missions, provide services to the communities they serve, amplify their voices, and share intelligence, resources, and workload. In fact, research commissioned by Independent Sector indicates that nonprofits belonging to collaborative working groups such as associations or coalitions advocate at higher rates than nonmembers.
We Want to Hear from You. Independent Sector is convening a group of stakeholders with all levels of experience to hear their expertise and devise long-term solutions.
During this listening session, participants will explore emerging strategies that nonprofits can leverage to share power within coalitions, find and join a coalition, tackle a wide range of policy issues, work towards common goals, and more. Attendees will also be presented with opportunities to ask questions, interrogate findings, discuss barriers, share their expertise, and brainstorm solutions. Information gathered during these convenings will be used to inform future research and capacity building tools and resources.
