Do you agree with the quote? Are alliances in nonprofits better for organizations? In August 2015, the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance announced a new partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. The Nonprofit Leadership Alliance (2015) stated:
In addition to gaining access to over 9,000 Certified Nonprofit Professionals, the partnership provides opportunities for Boys & Girls clubs employees and volunteers to connect with the 50+ universities and non-profit organizations that are part of the Alliance network.
That type of alliance seems to make a big impact that benefits both organizations. Just like business models and leadership styles, just because one approach works for one person or organization, it does not necessarily mean it will work for another. Is that true for nonprofits, though?
Post an evaluation of whether strategic alliances are important for all nonprofits to employ. Include in your evaluation whether every nonprofit should seek to become part of one or more alliances. Explain why every nonprofit should or should not have strategic alliances. Make sure to support your perspective with appropriate resources.
