Innovation through Collaboration and Partnerships:
A Look at How Working Together through Collaboration and Partnerships Can Drive Innovation and Sustainability in the Nonprofit and Social Sector

Unlike the private sector, few nonprofits enter into strategic partnerships and far fewer merge or affiliate with other nonprofits. Why is this? And more importantly, what will it take for the Philadelphia regional nonprofit community to begin to work more strategically together as a sector?

The Philadelphia Social Innovations Journal (PSIJ), in partnership with the Urban Affairs Coalition’s Coalition U Initiative, United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, and Public Health Management Corporation is pleased to host an important conversation about the evolution of partnerships in the nonprofit sector, highlighting new strategies for growth and sustainability in the post-recession economy.

Regional and national experts on collaborations, collective impact strategies and mergers, along with experienced local nonprofit leaders, will share best practices on successful partnerships and also discuss how, unlike the private sector, few nonprofits enter into such partnerships and far fewer affiliate or merge with other nonprofits. In addition to relevant Journal articles, participants will receive a complimentary copy of “Partnerships for Health and Human Services,” published by Springer Publishing Company, which is a comprehensive guide and toolkit for creating successful nonprofit partnerships, including regional and national case-studies and legal support documents.
