A Bigger Value Proposition for All.

Mergers have been a topic of discussion among nonprofit leaders, boards and investors. For many stakeholders, mergers can offer attractive opportunities for growth, positive options to deal with economic constraints and/or the confidence of an organization’s future in the face of dwindling financial resources and membership base.

As a potential impact to the COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis, will more organizations consider a merger in their future?

Mergers with membership-based organizations or with another entity with a complementary mission occur for different reasons. Even without a community crisis, many organizations see the benefits of combining purpose, resources and initiatives.

Is this the right time to consider a merger?
