Collective Impact

CSC is a backbone organization, which means we bring people together for collective impact to advance individual and community improvement.

Collective impact is a structured form of collaboration, a commitment of a group of actors from different sectors to a common agenda for solving a specific social problem.

Best results for collective impact work require…

  • Understanding the challenges we face
  • Acting today while remaining mindful of the future
  • Advancing new thinking and directions for shaping what’s ahead
  • Welcoming opportunities of a dramatically different future
  • Moving forward together with a common vision and agenda
  • Tackling all efforts with urgency, patience and perseverance
  • Taking on the new and unproven
