Collaborative Governance Models – Creating a Memorandum of Agreement
The partnership ecosystem for the Changing CARE project is comprised of formal and informal partnerships. To support cross organizational partnerships, the Change Foundation developed a template Memorandum of Agreements. A Memorandum of Agreements (MOA) is a written document describing a cooperative relationship between two parties wishing to work together on a project or to meet an agreed upon objective. An MOA serves as a contractual document and describes the terms and details of the partnership agreement. Some projects developed their own MOAs specific to their own context with their project partners.
We have shared an example MOA for you to use as a starting point as you develop your own. Note that using the content and creating an MOA based on our recommendation does not reflect legal advice.
