Building Strength by Working Together

Dayton Opera, Ballet and Symphony have found common
ground for sharing resources.

Launched by The Dayton Foundation in March 2009, the Nonprofit Alliances Support Program is a collaborative response to help address the long-term viability of our community’s nonprofits. Many regional nonprofits lack the tools or infrastructure to accomplish their missions with the greatest efficiency. Through this pilot effort, nonprofits will develop new and more efficient ways to structure their organizations through partnership, alliances or mergers.

To date, the Foundation has organized a series of informational sessions for nonprofits’ boards and staff, followed by individual meetings with a consultant and then a competitive grants process. A consultant will work with the not-for-profit organizations that have requested assistance and have been accepted for the process. The consultant will help the organizations explore ways and develop a plan to partner or merge with their chosen nonprofit organizations for increased efficiency and effectiveness.

The goal of this initiative is to help preserve vital work needed for our community by our region’s nonprofit partners who provide important community services.
