Partnerships, Alliances, Mergers & Acquisitions 

For many organisations, considering an M&A deal is often the biggest and riskiest decision your organisation will ever undertake. This webinar will explore the crucial preparation and due diligence that should prepare you for M&A success.










Can your directors & executive team answer all of these 5 questions?

1. What would our nonprofit Board do if we were approached next week about a merger possibility?

2. What are the different structural options from collaboration and alliances, right through to mergers?

3. How do we test a merger possibility against our vision?

4. How do we safeguard the interests of the people and communities we serve?

5. What are the three biggest areas of financial risk when assessing a nonprofit merger partner?

With so much that can go wrong, preparation and planning is crucial.

This webinar will show you:

  • How to think about mergers, partnerships and alliances as growth strategies, even if your organisation has a small ‘footprint’
  • What areas to focus on when conducting due diligence on a potential merger partner to capture the greatest possible value and ensure there are no nasty ‘surprises’
  • How to protect the interests of the people and communities you serve during the process
  • The right way to successfully unify the various organisations after M&A has taken place
