One of the challenges many collective impact efforts face is having financial support over a long enough period to make real progress on their stated results.

Join us for this discussion with the Advancing Healthier Wisconsin Endowment at the Medical College of Wisconsin about a promising approach to philanthropic support and partnership for collective impact efforts.

We hear about the Endowment’s funding model where they have made substantial eight-year-long investments in ten collective impact efforts coupled with extensive technical and capacity-building support. Join us as we learn how they developed their funding approach. what they have learned so far with their partners, and why making a long-term commitment was so important for their work.
