The SeaChange-Lodestar Fund for Nonprofit Collaboration

Thank you for your interest in the SeaChange-Lodestar Fund for Nonprofit Collaboration

The SeaChange-Lodestar Fund's mission is to encourage and support mergers, acquisitions, joint-ventures, and other types of formal, long-term collaboration among nonprofit organizations. We believe that collaboration can be a valuable capacity-building tool for nonprofit organizations to increase the efficiency, effectiveness, and sustainability with which they pursue their missions. The information gathered with this voluntary tool should help make our first conversation more productive. If possible, we'd like both organizations to be involved in filling it out. Please answer the questions to the best of your ability and we'll shortly get back in touch with you.

Please very briefly describe the potential collaboration and the current status of the process.
