Margo Spilde, founder and CEO of GRASP, says collaborating with other charities allows you to help more people. Spilde learned how organizations can collaborate while serving on grant committees with the Community Foundation of the Ozarks. “We can raise more money and we have more skills and we have more assets to provide for people,” Spilde says. Rather than duplicating services, work together toward a shared goal.
