Partnerships and Collaboration

Get bigger results from working together. That’s the purpose of community partnerships.

Collaboration is a powerful strategy to leverage a greater number of voices, resources, and volunteers around a specific goal or activity.  Partners help ramp up the volume on issues that are important to your mission.

Working together, your organization can maximize funding or in-kind resource, expand outreach, increase media coverage, improve program impact, mobilize more volunteers, build a stronger and bigger base of information, increase public policy success, and influence the public debate.
