Finding New Paths for Teen Engagement and Learning: A Funder Collaborative Leads the Way


Our case study on the Jewish Teen Education and Engagement Funder Collaborative shares what we have learned in studying the process and accomplishments of a group of local and national funders from ten different communities, all bound by a common overarching pursuit, but each with their own goals, strategies and structures. It details the Collaborative’s genesis (which was prompted by our study, Effective Strategies for Educating and Engaging Jewish Teens), membership benefits and key elements to the Collaborative’s early success.

Ellen Irie, along with Collaborative member Reuben Posner, co-authored a thought piece for eJewish Philanthropy that summarizes some of the case study’s helpful insights.
