Thank you for taking the time to view this e-learning lesson on sustaining positive TTA outcomes through community partnerships. A partnership between a nonprofit and the community can connect the organization more deeply to the area it serves, while simultaneously strengthening its reach and capacity. The same applies to partnerships among nonprofit peers. Understanding the importance of these relationships can help you, as an intermediary, better serve nonprofits.

Thank you for learning more about establishing community partnerships.

Based on this lesson’s content, you should now be better equipped to:

  1. Explain the importance of promoting community involvement and promoting networking among nonprofits;
  2. Identify resources to help your organization implement these practices; and
  3. Apply the practices to training and technical assistance for the nonprofits with whom you work.

Consult these references for additional resources on community partnerships.
