Hampton Roads Community Foundation: Organizational Collaboration Study

Hampton-Roads-Community-Foundation II

Team: Joe Kluger

The Hampton Roads Community Foundation engaged Joe Kluger of WolfBrown to develop recommended strategies to increase the individual and collective sustainability of the region’s major performing arts organizations, emphasizing possible organizational collaborations. WolfBrown worked to identify four organizations with sufficient commonality and interest in exploring a wide range of collaboration options, including Virginia Arts Festival, Virginia Opera, Virginia Stage Company, and Virginia Symphony Orchestra.

The project resulted in recommendations to consolidate some shared administrative services under the auspices of one of the organizations in order to increase organizational capacity and maximize resource efficiencies for all.
