Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should I become a Blueprint Partner?

Could you use some additional resources or support? The Blueprint Partnership program will link you into the network of SOAR and make your work a part of something bigger than yourself. Along with this comes improved credibility and access to supporting resources that are also in our network.

What type of Partners are a fit for the program?

We do not restrict the partnership process, we just ask that you read our core values to make sure your organization is a fit for the program. Our core values define who we are and drive the work we do.

How can the Blueprint Partnership Program help support my work?

As a partner we are able to see how your work fits into the greater regional picture and find opportunities for strategic alignment with your efforts and our other partners' efforts. This provides the potential for greater impact, economies of scale, and access to funding and capacity resources organically.
