Nonprofit Mergers & Affiliations

Nonprofit mergers involving CLTs, CDCs, and even Habitat for Humanity affiliates are on the rise.  A merger is sometimes the best way for two or more nonprofit organizations to combine their programs, assets, and staffs for greater productivity and sustainability.  But a merger is not the only option for collaboration – nor is it always best suited to preserving the values and protecting the beneficiaries of a CLT.  The materials collected (or referenced) in this section of the CLT RESOURCE CENTER provide a framework for planning the process and weighing the options for bringing multiple nonprofits together, especially when one of them is a CLT.
