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.

Merger of Lung Cancer Research Organizations

Uniting Against Lung Cancer and Lung Cancer Research Foundation had a common mission:  both organizations were dedicated to funding innovative lung cancer research toward finding a cure. Given their similarities in fundraising, and programs, they realized that a merger would enable both organizations to leverage their collective resources to have greater impact.  A portion of the costs related to the merger was provided by The SeaChange-Lodestar Fund for Nonprofit Collaboration.
