CASE STUDY | 8 Collective Impact

Collective Impact, Case Studies

Curated by FSG, these 8 case studies are descigned to help collective impact practitioners learn from others. As the idea of collective impact continues to gain traction, more and more organizations in communities across the country are coming together to develop initiatives with the hopes of tackling their most complex social issues from obesity to substance abuse to workforce development. While no two communities or initiatives are identical, we’ve found that stories of what works—and what doesn’t—are some of the best learning tools.

The case studies include:

  • Communities that Care
  • E3 Alliance
  • Memphis Fast Forward
  • Opportunity Chicago
  • Partners for a Competitive Workforce
  • The Road Map Project
  • Shape Up Somerville
  • Vibrant Communities
