Merger Determination Prior to an Executive Hire


A leading statewide grassroots advocacy organization working to ensure that everyone can thrive at all stages of life without discrimination and oppression based on sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression needed to determine if a merger was a more-viable option than hiring a new executive director. Their current executive director was leaving soon, and they hired an interim executive director to give them time to make an informed choice.


We facilitated a five-month process of: talking with funders about their commitment to the organization, selecting and thoroughly assessing viable partners, engaging two potential partners in merger interest conversations, and determining to proceed with a search for an executive director as a free-standing 501c3/501c4 organization. The search and hire phase took another three months.


A steadfast executive director was hired, who successfully righted the ship, gained the confidence of the funders and board, and continued their critical advocacy and policy work at the State House.
