Small Nonprofits Need Full-time Staff To Build Capacity to Collaborate

A study from Georgia State University finds that nation's smallest nonprofits (less than $500,000 in annual turnover) who have at least one full-time staff member are much more likely than those without any staff to be involved in formal collaborations that can help them obtain funding and meet client needs.


However, few nonprofits this size have the staffing required to garner these benefits. Researchers studied the human resource capacity and collaboration among small nonprofits and found that small nonprofits often have very few paid staff and rely heavily on volunteers who don't have the time they need to manage these collaborative efforts.
