Tom McLaughlin on Administrative Collaborations

Jul 16, 2012

Administrative collaboration involves two or more nonprofits consolidating administrative aspects of their operation in order to be more effective. It is typically aimed at increasing efficiency, includes formal agreement for contracting, exchanging, or sharing services, and allows the nonprofits to share decision-making powers. 

Tom McLaughlin, author of Nonprofit Mergers and Alliances and the founder of McLaughlin and Associates, answers some of Foundation Center’s questions regarding administrative collaborations. This is the first video of a three-part series where Tom McLaughlin answers questions about different types of nonprofit collaborations.
