Collaboration College was started in September 2011 by The HCA Foundation, Lipscomb University and the Center for Nonprofit Management as a first-of-its-kind in the nation initiative to develop models of collaboration which can be replicated around the country.
Six teams, comprised of 18 local nonprofit organizations, continued through the year-long program and have been guided through the difficult task of breaking the mold to share expenses or the delivery of services.
More than $80,000 in consulting has been donated by North Highland, C3 Consulting and HCA and $30,000 in consulting from CNM, made possible by The HCA Foundation. Lipscomb University contributed its executive leadership, classrooms and other academic resources to help facilitate these collaborations.
Each year CNM hosts Salute to Excellence, the “Academy Awards” of the Middle Tennessee nonprofit community, with a dinner and awards presentation that honors area nonprofits for their commitment to management excellence.
