dc.description.abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this research is to describe who nonprofit organizations that serve the LGBTQ community in Texas collaborate with, how and why they collaborate. This research uses the literature to develop a conceptual framework that organizes the nature of collaboration into the following five categories: types of collaborators, models of collaboration, acquisition of resources, improvement of program outcomes, and organizational needs.

Data and Methods: Data and Methods Data were collected via a web survey to address the nature of collaboration of nonprofit organizations that serve the LGBTQ community in Texas. The survey was distributed to administrators of nonprofit organizations in Texas that serve the LGBTQ community. This survey was sent to 62 administrators, however, 16 of the emails containing the survey bounced. Of the 46 administrators that received the survey, 15 of them completed it. This survey had a response rate of 33%.

Findings: The results of this research revealed that all nonprofit organizations studied collaborated with at least one public, private and nonprofit organization. While the model of collaboration use varied, most nonprofit organizations that serve the LGBTQ community reported that they collaborate with other nonprofits via a network. There was overwhelming agreement amongst all administrators that collaboration led to the acquisition of resources and the improvement of program outcomes.
