- Learn the fundamentals about how to collaborate with others to accomplish your organization’s goals;
- Use collaboration to meet the needs in your community;
- Become more attractive to funders through collaboration; and
- Hear from a funder and how other nonprofits are successfully using collaborations in their communities.
