Community Conversation on Nonprofit Collaborations, November 5

by LK Gagnon

Community Conversation on Nonprofit Collaborations

Sponsored by the United Way of York County and Kennebunk Savings

For most nonprofit organizations, these are trying times.  Rising expenses and stagnant or declining funding make it difficult to provide the services that are needed in our communities.  Perhaps one or more of the following apply to your organization: 

  • -We need to find ways to meet our operational expenses without sacrificing services.
  • -We have pared down our internal operating and administrative systems to the point that there are no more savings in this area.
  • -The prospects of finding additional revenues to offset costs are limited, at best.   

If any of these apply to your organization, you may have come to the conclusion that offsetting expenses through strategic community partnering is the most viable pathway forward. 

You are cordially invited to a community gathering to explore these ideas further with your colleagues. We’ll look at the full realm of partnership possibilities and hear about several local examples of collaboration efforts currently underway.

Somehow, Imissed this announcement. Are there minutes from this meeting or is another meeting of this kind planned? Thank you.

Hi Suzanne,

This was not a MANP program, but The United Way of York County — either Barb Wentworth ( or Kathryn Davis at ( — will be able to direct you to the organizers.

Hope this helps,

Elizabeth Banwell
