Abstract

Every connection and relationship we make in life contributes to our lifelong development. What we see today, particularly in the business world, is a need and desire for long-lasting relationships that engage in the exchange of information, resources, and/or connections. In this study I have tried to identify the type of connections between low-income, nonprofit organizations within the Kittitas County area. Through an interview process that collects some basic structural information from the organizations, I’ll be able to determine the strength of the nonprofit organizations relationships. As a result of my research I have created a socio-matrix, which is an effective visual aid that graphs the interorganizational relationships of these nonprofit organizations. My analysis of each interorganizational relationship identifies the type of exchange these organizations undergo to identify how non-profits operate in Kittitas County. In exploration of who exchanges information, resources, and/or contacts with whom we see if and how all the non-profits are connected and who is at the center of this network.
