Thinking about... Merger, during Covid-19

June 2020

Ben Cairns, IVAR | Lawrie Simanowitz, Bates Wells


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.

We cover:

  • Reasons for thinking about merger
  • Stages in the merger process
  • What makes a successful merger?
  • A collaboration spectrum


We are planning a webinar for those thinking about merger – with Bates Wells – in July. Sign up to our newsletter to be the first to hear when the date is set.
