Abstract:

Across the country, funder collaboratives pool funds for fostering the formation and expansion of workforce intermediaries and to advocate for policies that will sustain these new organizations. The power of these collaboratives comes not just from the funds they bring to programs but, even more crucially, from the alignment of civic leadership around a common vision for the community.

This report was prepared for Investing in Workforce Intermediaries, itself a collaboration of the Annie E. Casey, Rockefeller, and Ford foundations. Since 2004, the sponsoring foundations, working with JFF, have led a pilot effort to create a national support infrastructure for workforce intermediaries. In Baltimore, Boston, New York City, and the San Francisco Bay Area, funder collaboratives affiliated with this initiative are supporting local efforts to change how workforce development is delivered.
