How are you creating Sustainable Collaborations? Working with other local nonprofits on sustainability education, workshops, etc. Meeting regularly with other nonprofits in my interest area. Re-establishing core concepts for safety, and solid foundation. Being assertive as opposed to passive. Being a positive light among the darkness. By making inter-agency connections and maintaining open lines of communication with the public. In working with existing partners in faith and energy efficiency networks to expand our visibility to increase resources and recruit volunteers. By working with various groups, agencies, police, fire and neighbors we are creating sustainable collaborations, which will have a positive impact. Creating disaster plans with partner agencies in the county.
How are you creating Sustainable Collaborations? We serve our clients and our mission best with continued collaborations, providing unduplicated needed services. Through relationships, networking and MOUs. Senior support. 1 + 1 = 3 is our goal. Look for partners who complement your expertise. Partnering with neighborhood organizations outside our town.
How are you creating Sustainable Collaborations? Building and maintaining relationships with other agencies that will be providing long term recovery support in the areas where we work. Doing programs on campus. Continual education courses with continual networking. By engaging community partners and beneficiaries with the Fund to address a specific problem that communities assume are fixed or do not exist. We work with girls between 7 and 11 to teach them to learn more about sustaining their bodies, their minds and their planet. Creating and building solid networks of agencies looking at improving the greater good and focusing on the needs of the greater community. Weve established a committee of Jewish nonprofits on the north peninsula to discuss preparedness and security issues.
