A hands-on multi-year partnership.
Partnership for Animals (PFA) seeks to develop a true partnership with its non-profit Partner Organisations.
PFA invests capital, time, and expertise in the non-profit Partner Organisation over multiple years. PFA’s model of active engagement is time consuming and intensive; most non-profits are not accustomed to having outside partners involved with the internal operations of their organisation. It is not a model which will suit every non-profit and involves developing a deep relationship based on trust to jointly address the organisation’s needs. See mission & vision.
- To date, 100 percent of the selected organisations have come through personal recommendations and contacts within the animal protection world. Partnership for Animals (PFA) discourages unsolicited proposals. However, if you feel that your organisation is truly aligned with our aims, do contact us.
- Please define your organisational capacity needs and propose areas for assistance. PFA is interested in understanding your capacity building goals to determine if PFA can add value to the organisation.
We define organisational capacity building as an ongoing process to increase the abilities of an organisation to perform core functions, solve problems, and define and achieve objectives in a sustainable way.
- PFA encourages frank and open discussion with potential nonprofit Partner Organisations to evaluate how to most effectively work together.
For each Partner Organisation, a Lead Collaborator will be appointed by PFA. The Lead Collaborator will coordinate the relationship and act as advocate for the Partner Organisation. The Lead Collaborator will work with the Partner Organisation to establish and support their organisational capacity-building goals.
PFA is committed to supporting Partner Organisations for a multi-year period, as it often takes several years for organisational capacity-building efforts to be fulfilled. Each year the partnership is reviewed to establish progress on programme and capacity-building goals and to determine the overall impact of PFA’s resources. PFA expects that the direct hands-on relationships with most organisations will last from 3 to 5 years.
