Mergers….what are the drivers?

  • Notes
    • Reducing costs is a catalyst but is insufficient to justify a merger
    • Changing needs of beneficiaries & requirement from funders are real drivers

Mergers….at the right life stage of development

  • Notes
    • After a growth period, charities typically go through a transition
    • Merger can be an option to lift the charity to the next stage of growth
    • Where are you ? Where is your partner?
    • “Two drunks don’t make a good team”
    • 170,000 charities is not wrong but consolidation is needed in fragmented sectors to allow space for start ups to bring new ideas & energy
