Thomas Edison once said, "To have a great idea, have a lot of them." As grants become more competitive, and given this period of uncertainty with federal funding, local governments are experimenting with new ways to meet their community's needs. Shawnee Bigelow's Building Capacity: How Community Coalitions Are Improving the Chances of Federal Funding Awards was our most recent post on leveraging local resources in order to become eligible for more types of opportunities. In our e-book Bridging the Gap Between: Ideas on Local Government - Nonprofit Collaboration, we have compiled three of our most classic articles on the subject that answer the following questions:
- What exactly is government and nonprofit collaboration?
- What are some examples of projects funded this way?
- What are some advantages for both entities?
- Can local governments set up their own nonprofits?
- What are some specific steps to take when working on a collaboration with community partners?
