System Innovation

Unleashing the potential of young children who need us and alleviating the Ready for Kindergarten crisis in metro Portland is not the job of just one nonprofit, one foundation, or even a school or government. 

System innovation is one of the ways in which we drive community impact. These investments focus on innovative programs and projects that leverage diverse community resources towards collective action. They usually address root causes, closing gaps in the system and collaboration that creates efficiency or greater impact.

Some examples of system innovation investments include: Collective Impact/collective action, Program Design and Implementation, Promoting Promising or Evidence-Based Practices, Research & Development, Policy/Advocacy, Evaluation, Training/Technical Assistance, and/or Social Businesses
