Amy Sherman: "Partners in Transformation"

Event Date: June 22nd

Sagamore Institute Senior Fellow Amy Sherman leads an Ideas in Indiana luncheon focused on faith-based and community initiatives. The program is co-sponsored by the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University.

Considerable attention has been given to the role faith-based organizations (FBOs) are playing in providing social services to America’s needy families. Little known and little publicized, though, are the creative collaborations FBOs are making with public actors—schools, police departments, juvenile courts, local government officials, secular philanthropies—and how these collaborations are transforming the social sector’s landscape.

Sherman has been investigating these innovative “multi-sector” collaborations for the past three years through her work with the Faith and Service Technical Education Network. Since 2004, she has also overseen the Partners in Transformation Awards Program, which has identified and rewarded FBOs for particularly effective and creative partnerships.

This luncheon symposium will include the formal awards ceremony for the winners of the 2006 Partners in Transformation competition...
