What We Do
Today’s nonprofits work hard to grow impact while dealing with big changes – fewer donations, people giving differently, and less involvement by the business community. One way nonprofits are adapting is through consolidation. Humanergy’s Non-Profit Merger Team (NPMT) understands the complexities of coming together. We offer proven expertise and services to help nonprofit organizations move along the Continuum of Collaboration.
What We Know
- Insight into what is necessary as leaders to ensure smooth change
- Facilitation that is independent and focused
- Guidance through the legal logistics
- Strong communication planning and tools
- Experience to fall back on when the going gets tough
