Collective Impact 101

Advancing Regional Collective Impact

The Vision of the Welborn Baptist Foundation is to cultivate communities that flourish with the well-being, abundance, and peace that God desires.  As an outflow of that vision, the Foundation, in partnership with Talent 2025, will be hosting Collective Impact 101 on September 23 & 24.

We recognize the value of a cross-sector approach that goes beyond collaboration.  We see Collective Impact as a way to advance our community’s most important initiatives.

Currently, Talent 2025 is one of those important initiatives and Collective Impact provides a backdrop and context for introducing (socializing) this community betterment approach.
