Non-Profit Collaboration (Saint John & Sussex)

There have been growing conversations in recent months around the potential for collaboration, shared services, and trying to optimize resources of non-profits and community groups.

To help develop these conversations into practical realities, we’re hosting a workshop with an expert to provide further discussion, learning, context and resources.

This workshop, facilitated by Sari Labelle, will focus on increasing collaboration in the not-for-profit sector, through a wide array of options which could include shared service partnerships, and mergers. The workshop will include:

Who should attend? Executive Directors/CEOs and a Board member from the organization (optional but recommended).

Cost: Free (funded by United Way Saint John, Kings & Charlotte)
Lunch will be provided!

Grants for Strategic Planning

2020 created many challenges for charities, but it has also highlighted new needs and opportunities.  For some organizations this has created an ideal time for them to update their strategic plan to ensure that their current priorities are still meeting the needs of their clients.  Therefore, United Way Saint John, Kings & Charlotte is offering grants to help charities update their strategic plan.

A strategic plan or framework serves as a roadmap for non-profits to assess their progress. It helps the organization identify strategies to best advance their mission.

The strategic planning process can energize the staff and the board for the future. United Way will subsidize up to 25% of the cost of strategic planning to a maximum of $5,000 for eligible charities.   Please see the eligibility criteria and application if you are interested.  Applications will be reviewed on a first-come first-served basis.
