The Lehigh Valley Synergy Fund
A renewed spirit of collaboration exists in the Lehigh Valley, with our public, private and social sectors working together to significantly improve and sustain community conditions.
With over 700 nonprofit organizations, 87% focused on human services, it is critical that community partners recognize the power of collaboration, affiliation and efficiencies as stewards of our community’s resources. The Lehigh Valley Community Foundation, together with the United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley will lead and foster these key ingredients toward collaborations in multiple ways, one of which is encouraging and supporting Nonprofit Mergers.
The Lehigh Valley Community Foundation and United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley will promote and support Nonprofit Mergers in two ways:
- Create awareness and education about the types, benefits and resources needed to successfully carry out and sustain a merge between two or more nonprofit organizations.
- Develop a shared “area of interest” fund called the Lehigh Valley Synergy Fund providing support to non-profits engaging in various levels of collaboration and beyond.
