Nashville Collective Impact Forum

As a community, Nashville has done a great job building up strong nonprofit organizations that tackle some of our city’s biggest challenges. So how can we really take these efforts to the next level? How can we accelerate broad, sweeping social change?

Other cities are making headway on complex community challenges through collective efforts – utilizing a framework for change called collective impact. These collective efforts engage nonprofits, government, philanthropy, and business to work in a concerted way to make progress on tough issues.

That's the heart of the Nashville Collective Impact Forum: how can Nashville continue to band together to accelerate progress on our community’s biggest challenges?

Join Nashville’s cross-sector leaders on August 9 at Lipscomb University to learn from national and local experts about collective impact. Participants will learn about key elements of collective impact and how this framework has been successful in helping communities across the nation make progress on complex issues. Breakout sessions will provide practical tools and lessons learned to support Nashville leaders in creating a culture of collective action. 

  • The Nashville Collective Impact Forum is designed for leaders in nonprofit, government, business, and philanthropy.
  • Nonprofits are encouraged to send CEOs or senior leaders and commit to participating in the full-day Forum.
  • The Nashville Collective Impact Forum is generously supported by local funders, reducing the registration fee to $50 for CNM members and $75 for non-members. A limited number of scholarships are available. Please contact to inquire about scholarships.
