community engagement

We pursue community engagement when a big problem defies immediate definition, no one knows the solution, what the resources must be, or how success will be measured. This helps us assess how Foundation resources, expertise, and leadership can move Evanston toward the ends that residents urgently want to achieve. Engagement is productive when a systemic approach, long-term effort, and collective action will need to be defined before we can “move the needle.”
