Description

This report shows how a collaborative effort between local D.C. foundations and national funders supported the transformation of the District's juvenile justice agency. The report documents how leaders in the foundation community devoted their time to bringing other national and local foundations on board, while collaborating in a way that made the whole greater than the sum of the parts.
