Many Voices, One Goal: How an Informal Foundation Collaborative Helped Make California History

Many Voices, One Goal: How an Informal Foundation Collaborative Helped Make California History
January 23, 2015 Stuart Foundation

What happens when six foundations come together, informally, to help inform policy change? In California, the outcome was elevated discussion that eventually resulted in the state’s new Local Control Funding Formula for public education. A new case study documents the process through which the funders helped provide needed information and support for nonprofit organizations who engaged a diverse group of stakeholders. The case study also shares the challenges, benefits and lessons learned from this experience. Both the report and a two-page executive summary are available here.
