The Dan River Nonprofit Network Collaboration Lab is meant to encourage partnership between area nonprofits, businesses, and other agencies to work together on innovative and mutually beneficial projects. We aim to foster collaboration that pulls on the strength of our peers to increase impact and positive social change. The Network will provide meeting space, various tools/resources, as well as facilitation services to member organizations seeking to collaborate. Contact us to get started on your idea and we’ll help you find partners or assist with the existing group.
Example Collaborative Projects:
- Joint Grant Applications
- Job Shares (i.e, 2 agencies each need a part time staff that can be combined to be 1 full time position)
- Large Volunteer Events
- Co-Working Space
- Group Orders to Reduce Cost on Supplies
