Finding Common Purpose is advancing a new social contract to improve lives and close disparities from cradle to end of life.
Central to advancing a new social contract: Community dashboards that report on progress in the 21st Century.
What is a Community Dashboard?
A northstar that aligns local residents and stakeholders from government, school districts, nonprofit service providers, foundations, and businesses around life outcomes to reduce disparities. Community dashboards are used to track and analyze data to inform policy and resource decisions, identify service gaps, monitor progress, and provide alignment, transparency and accountability.
What Does Finding Common Purpose Do?
Narrative Change: Create a new public narrative that community dashboards are a northstar to measure progress in the 21st century.
Research and Tools: Produce best-practice reports, case studies, tools, and other publications to advance the development and use of community dashboards.
Connect and Support: Facilitate peer connections and build a cadre of technical support providers to develop and implement community dashboards.
Where There is Common Purpose
Hundreds of local initiatives are building a new social contract; facilitating the public, private, and nonprofit sectors to work with residents to meet basic needs and reduce disparities from cradle to end of life.
