Regardless of what your network is doing, we hope you will "register" it here. We define networks – referred to by many different names such as coalitions, partnerships, collaboratives, and collective impacts – as a group of people and organizations often developed as a way to leverage the collective knowledge and resources of multiple organizations and communities to address complex social problems. They come in many different forms, some have funding and others do not, and all are governed in different ways.
This effort is meant to simple - just answer a few questions here. We will use the information to feed an online, interactive map on the VNL home page, where you can look for other networks across sector and location. We will follow up in the future with more ways to provide information into this data dashboard! Stay tuned!
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions, comments, or ideas.
[We suggest before you register your network that you check the map to see if anyone has already registered your network.]
