ANNUAL GRANT CYCLE COLLECTIVE IMPACT NETWORK CAPACITY GRANTS Key Findings Collective Impact - the commitment of a group of important actors from different sectors to a common agenda for solving a specific social problem.

Different from other collectives, because it involves: (1) a centralized infrastructure, (2) a dedicated staff and (3) a structured process. Social issues arise from the interplay of government and commercial activities. Thus, complex problems need to be solved by a collective effort.
