Catalyzing Change: Models of Collaboration

Strategic funders are taking an increasingly active role in supporting their communities as a means of catalyzing change. This session looks at four models where foundations and Federations serve as facilitators and conveners for social change. These robust models include collective impact, creating networks to deepen collaboration and connection, and convening multiple stakeholders to assess community needs. Explore lessons to make the whole greater than the sum of the parts and consider how your foundation can be a positive change agent in the communities you serve.
