Newsbits: Do most nonprofits benefit from mergers?

In a recent study, 88% of nonprofits involved in a merger felt that their organization was better off post merger in terms of achieving organizational goals and increasing impact. So discovered a team of Northwestern University researchers who studied 25 nonprofit mergers in the Chicago area (and four cases that ultimately didn’t result in mergers). Interviews with participants found that the most successful mergers were mission-driven and motivated by the desire to provide higher-quality services or to expand into new areas. If your organization’s management or board is considering a merger, please discuss with your Warady & Davis LLP advisor as they are an invaluable resource in planning and reporting considerations.
