success examples

Posted 4 months ago at 7:44 pm

Hi everyone,

Does anyone have a list of examples that shows success stories of collective impact initiatives? A one-pager with a list of collective impact cases that made a real differnece on the target population. I need to show significant numbers to potential partners that the model works :)

Hi, Shani. This study, When Collective Impact has an Impact has a lot of info about a variety of initiatives and the results they're seeing. That might be a good place to start.

Hi Tracy
Actually I am familiar with the study. I need bottom lines, different examples from the field, that already reached success. Thanks.

Hi, Shani. There isn't really a one-pager for successful collective impact initiatives (just as there isn't a one-pager for all successful collaboratives working in education or health, etc.) One place to start is to look at case studies of different organizations. StriveTogether is one place that has a lot of education-focused work. We also have a lot of webinars that go into different cases, including organizations that participated in that research study, including the Milwaukee Teen Pregnancy Initiative and the Connecticut Juvenile Justice Alliance, the Elizabeth River Project, Home for Good, Promesa Boyle Heights, and Vermont Farm to Plate.

My Forum colleague Sharon also posted last year about some case studies that may be of interest as well.

Thank alot Tracy!
I'll dive into the examples you metioned, and look for Sharon's post from last year.
This was a huge help, thanks.

BTW - I know there isn't a one pager of course :) I was hoping someone alredy made a list similar to the one I want to do, and I can rely on previous work.

Thanks again.
Shani
