New Research Study: When Collective Impact Has an Impact

FSG is excited to share a new study conducted by a research team from ORS Impact and Spark Policy Institute: When Collective Impact Has an Impact.

This study was designed to look at the question of “To what extent and under what conditions does the collective impact approach contribute to systems and population changes?” 

In order to explore these questions, the research team studied 25 sites—with 8 deep dive site visits—and has generated a rich set of findings that we hope will be useful for the field of collective impact practitioners, community members, funders and researchers/evaluators.
