Collaboration Hub

Welcome to the Collaboration Hub

The Collaboration Hub serves as a home to vast resources related to collaboration in the social sector. This Hub includes valuable publications, questions and answers, links to videos and podcasts, blog posts, and a comprehensive, searchable collection of 650+ profiles of vetted collaborations submitted for the Collaboration Prize in 2009 and 2011.

We encourage you to start by searching the Nonprofit Collaboration Database, where each profile provides information about the collaboration’s participants, methods, successes, challenges, and lessons learned. 

Collaboration in the Spotlight

Graduate! Philadelphia

The concept for Graduate! Philadelphia originated in 2004 out of concern that as many Philadelphians had dropped out of college as those who had graduated. Graduate! Philadelphia was envisioned as a collaboration of workforce and economic development and higher education to mobilize regional resources to create lasting, systemic changes resulting in more and better opportunities for adults to complete their college degrees and services to support them through completion. This collaboration was one of eight finalists for the 2011 Collaboration Prize.
