Sustainability Initiative Prepares Nonprofits for Partnership
On April 24, La Piana Consulting launched the Los Angeles Nonprofit Sustainability Initiative, with the Weingart Foundation, the California Community Foundation, The Ralph M. Parsons Foundation, The Center for Nonprofit Management, and the Luskin School at UCLA. The initiative supports L.A. nonprofits interested in pursuing partnerships to achieve greater sustainability.
The kick-off event drew 650 nonprofit leaders, and more than 80 organizations applied to receive individual assessments and consultation, far exceeding our expectations. Since July, we have worked with 40 of these nonprofits to help them determine their readiness for partnership, weigh their options, and map out possible next steps.

Three Ways Business Planning Can Support Strategic Restructuring
Recently, we began noticing an emerging interest among our strategic restructuring clients: business planning. In some cases, a group of potential partners wanted to engage in business planning as a way of evaluating the feasibility of the proposed partnership. In others, organizations that had already decided to partner wanted to launch the effort with a joint strategic/business planning process.
This led us to look closely at the interrelationship between strategic restructuring and business planning, and at how each type of effort could support the other. We included several examples of that relationship in The Nonprofit Business Plan, and continue to work with many inspirational organizations as they (business) plan for partnership.
