Collective Impact

Collective impact brings people together, in a structured way, to achieve social change. Collective Impact Initiatives are long-term commitments by a group of important actors from different sectors to a common agenda for solving a specific social problem. Their actions are supported by a shared measurement system, mutually reinforcing activities, and ongoing communication, and are staffed by an independent backbone organization.  Collective impact has been widely adopted as an effective form of cross-sector collaboration to address complex social and environmental challenges.
