National Partners

Locally Enlightening: The Part Our National Partners Play

When it comes to finding answers, and asking the right questions that precede them, we interact with partners from local to national. If we have to jump a time zone or two to learn best practices and bring innovation home, that’s precisely what we’ll do.

We are fortunate to work with the following national partners:

Ford Foundation for their leadership, organizational advancement, communications support

KI ThoughtBridge for their vision with adaptive leadership training

John S. and James L. Knight Foundation for addressing community information needs
and gaps

MIT Center for Civic Media helping us test technology as a potential tool to develop creative solutions to local community challenges

National Fund for Workforce Solutions for its collaborative investment focused on strengthening our region’s economy through training and support

USDA for their partnership and investment in collaboration and innovation in rural communities

ArtPlace America for their partnership and investment in collaboration and innovation in rural communities

Network Impact for developing and implementing a learning and evaluation strategy to continually assess progress and impact

Avivar Capital for creating and implementing our values-aligned capital management and impact investing strategy

 

These partners help make much of our work possible.
