W. K. Kellogg Foundation

The W. K. Kellogg Foundation's mission statement on civic engagement: We believe that people have the inherent capacity to solve their own problems and that social transformation is within the reach of all communities. We partner with those committed to inclusion, impact, and innovation in solving public problems. We seek engagement through dialogue, leadership development, collaboration, and new models of organizing.


Foundation for Social Change

The Foundation for Social Change is a non-profit organization that facilitates collaboration between the private sector, public sector and civil society to make a “business case” for supporting social issues that transform our world.


Interaction Institute for Social Change

IISC (Boston) works with organizations, communities, networks, and others to build their capacity for more effective, equitable and inclusive social change. And we offer workshops that provide participants with the opportunity to learn and practice the skills and tools of collaboration for social change so that they can do everything from designing meetings to building and running organizations and networks with greater social impact.
