About the Collective Impact Forum

The Collective Impact Forum (the Forum) is a community of practice and resource center for individuals using the collective impact approach to create social change in their communities. Collective impact is the commitment of a group of actors from different sectors to a common agenda for solving a specific social problem at scale. The Forum is a place for practitioners of this approach to access the tools and training that can help them succeed.
