Leveraging Philanthropy and Collaboration

The Lodestar Foundation seeks to expand the overall capacity of the social sector by promoting philanthropy, volunteering, public service, nonprofit collaboration and other business practices.

Back Office Consolidation among Louisville Human Services Nonprofits

Five like-missioned nonprofits that serve the human services sector in the Louisville, Kentucky area(Family & Children's Place, Maryhurst, The Center for Women and Families, Boys & Girls Haven and Uspiritus) came together to create a management services nonprofit, ImpactV, to provide centralized administrative and management services to the five organizations.  The benefits that are being realized from ImpactV include shared knowledge of processes and procedures, resource sharing and resource information, technology improvements, reduced software costs and organizational efficiencies. The longer term plan is to offer the services for purchase to other nonprofits in the community.    A challenge grant from Lodestar provided funding for the integration of the five non-profits' administrative services into the new nonprofit.
