Partnering across borders and sectors

Less than two weeks remain to apply to the Secretary's Awards for Public-Philanthropic Partnerships.

Hosted by the Office for International and Philanthropic Innovation and the Council on Foundations, these awards celebrate innovative and effective cross-sector partnerships between philanthropic and public organizations. The goal is to recognize the partnership process and its impact as a community strategy to increase the quality of life for low- and moderate-income residents across all American geographies — urban, suburban, and rural.

We encourage you to apply today and share this opportunity with philanthropic partners.  

2016 winners included:
