Discussion 2: Partner Collaboration Barriers

Some projects are best served by engaging in partnerships. There can be many reasons for partnering, but primarily it is because the need or problem requires the involvement of multiple stakeholders. In some cases, a funder may look at organizational capacity and question whether staff has the experience and skills to carry out the project successfully. Other grants, depending on the nature of the RFP description, will specify partnerships. And some projects are simply too complex and wide ranging to even consider within a single organization.

It is important to understand that the time to reach out to potential partners about opportunities to apply for grant funding is when a need is first identified at an organization. Those who reach out to brand new “partners” because they must in order to submit a proposal may find it doesn’t work once the project is implemented. The barriers to successful partnerships can vary from lack of communication to hidden agendas.

Please review the Partnerships: Framework for Working Together Guidebook PDF and consider the potential barriers that can impact the success of a partnership.

For this Discussion, based on your own project idea, consider the potential barriers that could impact the success of your prospective grant partner.

By Day 3 of Week 7

Post a 2- to 3-minute “Vlog” (video blog) reflecting on the following about barriers to successful partnerships:

  • What barrier(s) could impact the success of your funding partnership?
  • How will you work to overcome the barrier(s)?
  • Provide an explanation of the importance of building a relationship between funder and grantee. Describe key elements of this relationship, providing a rationale for your thinking.
  • Describe why the grant funder/RFP’s criteria are important and how they can influence the outcomes of the funding process.
  • Address both a Memorandum of Understanding and Letters of Agreement that would be necessary.ussion 2: Partner Collaboration Barriers
