Creating Successful Nonprofit Mergers

In “Why Nonprofit Mergers Continue to Lag,” published in the Spring 2014 issue of SSIR, Katie Smith Milway, Maria Orozco, and Cristina Botero discuss the reasons why there are so few nonprofit mergers and what leaders can do to overcome those hurdles and create more successful ones. To help people understand how to create a successful merger they also present three video interviews with Beth Babcock, President/CEO of Crittenton Women's Union, who ushered the agency's two legacy organizations through the process in 2006.

Why Nonprofit Mergers Continue to Lag

The recent economic recession triggered consolidation in a raft of for-profit service industries, from airlines to financial institutions, as companies sought to create more cost-efficient operations and broaden their customer reach. Not so in the nonprofit sector. Despite a downturn in giving by private donors and dramatic cuts in government spending, according to our research the rate of mergers in the nonprofit sector remained flat. Why? And how have organizations like CWU managed to create successful mergers? Katie Smith Milway answers these questions in the spring edition of SSIR.
