Collective Impact Lincoln creates lasting, meaningful, resident-led investment and positive change in Lincoln’s core neighborhoods. Through canvassing, community events, and our Community Builder Workshops, we help neighbors examine their communities’ natural strengths and take up new ways to improve.
Collective Impact Lincoln is a partnership between Civic Nebraska, Nebraska Appleseed and the South of Downtown Community Development Organization made possible in 2017 via Woods Charitable Fund’s Breakthrough Initiative Grant. Collective Impact Lincoln focuses on Lincoln’s Belmont, Clinton, Everett, Hartley, Near South, and University Place neighborhoods.
