What is Collective Impact?
Collective Impact is a way for large, diverse groups of stakeholders to come together to tackle large, complicated problems. The Ontario Trillium Foundation funds such work through its Collective Impact Grants (click on the Trillium logo to view a brief overview video).
Phase 1 of the Collective Impact process involves focusing on a specific problem and working with a large, multi-stakeholder group to develop a Theory of Change to address this problem. If Phase 1 is successful, additional funds for Phase 2 may be available that help enable concrete actions to realize the ultimate goal.
