CLEVELAND--February 22, 2017--The Fund for Our Economic Future announced today the launch of a new online tool to help support cross-sector collaboration. The site, http://collaboration.thefundneo.org/, builds off of the Fund's Collaboration handbook released last fall, walking users through the preconditions needed for and the essential elements of successful cross-sector collaboration, as well as evaluation tools and additional resources. More interactive features to come soon!
In October, the Fund also announced it would sponsor five individualized collaboration assessments and learning sessions with the book's author, Chris Thompson of Civic Collaboration Consultants, open to any sector and in any geography in Northeast Ohio. The following organizations were selected: Summit Food Coalition, United Way of Lorain County, ConxusNEO, New Growth Group, and Assist Communities.
