Program Description

Collective Impact is Shared Prosperity Philadelphia's implementation philosophy, and underpins our approach to fighting poverty. It requires: a common agenda among government, philanthropic, academic, business and consumer communities; a shared measurement of progress; coordination and support of aligned activities among the dozens of agencies working on poverty issues; continuous communication, and backbone support from the Mayor's Office of Community Empowerment and Opportunity.

The Collective Impact approach offers the best model for constructing a sound, comprehensive and sustainable response to the challenges associated with persistent, concentrated poverty. It also generates exciting, new opportunities to work closely with the many dedicated, talented and creative partners in this city that share our commitment to this work.
