Thinking about… Merger, during Covid-19
Thinking about… Merger, during Covid-19 is primarily for senior staff and trustees of small and medium-sized voluntary organisations. It is not a guide to financial aspects of merger, nor is it a step-by-step ‘toolkit’. Instead, it brings together the experiences of a wide variety of voluntary organisations and advisers that have contemplated or carried out merger to highlight different dimensions of ‘thinking about merger’.
Some people may be able to consider merger carefully and patiently with their boards, staff and partners; others may be in more of a hurry and feel they have little choice – whatever your circumstances, we recommend fully exploring the feasibility of merger with your prospective partner(s) before you commit.
