My organization is considering a merger as one option and I found this book quite helpful in providing a significant number of examples of how other organizations have approached mergers in the nonprofit sector. It's obviously quite different from corporate mergers where shares and ownership are involved. His discussion about clear purpose and vision is quite good and he also notes that often mergers occur between organizations that initially have different visions and missions, but can find synergies elsewhere by joining forces. It led me to consider different possibilities for our situation.

He does a good job of defining the importance of planning and how organizations should have clear understandings in advance of how they strategically benefit from merging. Due diligence is covered well as is the importance of establishing strong relationships between the executives of the partnering organizations. He also addresses board and funder involvement, noting that it is not unusual to have dissent, particularly at the board level. Finally, he discusses how organizations can handle different financial scenarios to increase the likelihood for merger success.

I was able to develop a detailed approach for my board on what to expect and how they should analyze potential partners and situations using the insights and examples he provides. It was the best resource I found on nonprofit mergers.
