Community Coalition - Nonprofit CollaborationOur Mission: The Community Coalition supports and celebrates individuals, families and social institutions through a collaborative fundraising effort. This creative approach by The Coalition combines efficient and effective business practices with the commitment to furthering the diverse work of its member organizations. What is the Community Coalition? The Community Coalition is an innovative model of collaboration among small non-profit organizations dedicated to fundraising together and sharing resources so that expenses are cut and more donor money can go directly to programs. The Coalition grew out of an understanding that by collaborating instead of competing - both in fundraising and in programming - the community, the individual organizations, and the donors would be best served. Founded in 1991 with three member organizations and now grown to six, these participating organizations are dedicated to a shared belief in supporting and celebrating individuals and families. This creative collaboration combines effective business practices with the commitment to furthering the diverse work of its members. Why is it successful? Good business: By staffing one fundraising effort with a broader reach, we save costs for each member organization We depend on the dedication and hard work of many volunteers to reduce costs Member organizations obtain better prices by purchasing as a group We offer donors one place to give in which they can support a wide variety of causes We offer options that a single small organization could not manage, such as our endowment We provide an additional source of financial long-term stability to member organizationsChester*Main Site (The Community Coalition)Community Coalition
