NonProfitConnect Leadership Workshop

  Better Together: Making a Plan for Nonprofit Collaboration 


If your nonprofit is seriously considering moving forward on a collaboration of any type, this program offers a unique opportunity to have an expert consultant, Scott Cotenoff of La Piana Consulting, work with you in a virtual, small group setting to think through next steps.  La Piana Consulting is a nationally recognized firm that has consulted with AARP, the ACLU and the YWCA.

The program is designed for the Board Chair (or key board leader) and Executive Director to attend all three 90-minute sessions together. Through a combination of presentation, small group discussions and homework, participants will gain the information needed to advance the discussion of collaboration and partnerships within their respective organizations.  Duos will leave with an initial plan.

Due to limited space availability, priority will be given to Mercer County regional nonprofits and those committed to a collaboration effort.

Dates:  February 12, February 26,  and March 12, 12:00pm-1:30pm via Zoom


Scott Cotenoff, Partner La Piana

Scott is dedicated to helping clients attune to the world around them so they can respond quickly to new opportunities to advance their mission. Asked about some of his most rewarding projects, Scott cites two recent mergers — one, a merger of two racial equity nonprofits, and the other a merger of three groups serving the global development community — both of which will allow the organizations to have a greater impact. Past clients include: Race Forward/CSI; Inside NGO/Lingos/Mango (Humentum); Grand St. Settlement; Westside Commons; Health Federation of Philadelphia; Mental Health Partnerships; Prizmah: Center for Jewish Day Schools; and HOPE Program/Sustainable South Bronx.  

Scott has a background in health, public health, and civil rights law. Prior to joining La Piana in 2013, Scott was senior VP for programs and new initiatives at New York City’s Partnership for the Homeless and served as executive director for the Children’s Hope Foundation and Body Positive. He has also worked for the City of New York in multiple capacities. Scott has an MS in Urban Public Health from Hunter College School of Health Sciences and a JD from Boston University School of Law; he has an undergraduate degree in Political Science from Duke University. 

This program is made possible thanks to the generous support of The Bunbury Fund at the Princeton Area Community Foundation.
