When we launched 1000 Feathers in 2016, it was out of a fundamental belief that there was more we could do. We wanted to bring the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors closer together – in both vision and strategy. We wanted to help communities and citizens have better access to the programs and resources they need. We wanted to help prepare organizations to better handle a changing landscape.
Communities are complex. Their challenges are complex. The organizations trying to meet those challenges are complex. As a result, it is more important than ever for organizations to communicate a bold vision, act more strategically, execute at a high level, and produce results. It is equally important that we all work together to reduce the growing gaps and disconnects that exist across all levels of the social service sector.
