Ep225: How National NPOs Can Work Effectively with Field Offices on Corporate Partnerships

Today on CauseTalk Radio, Megan I talk to Mollye Rhea, President of Atlanta-based For Momentum, on what's needed for a national corporate partnership to succeed both for the national headquarters and the field offices.

A recent study from For Momentum gathered data on important aspects of the most successful nationwide partnership collaboration across the nonprofit landscape. The findings give nonprofit professionals actionable insights based on data and best practices shared by 50+ leading nonprofits.
