It is a partnership of the leadership of the community so that people can sit around the table, make a strategic decision and then go back and empower the people in their organizations to make it happen. Theres no stone that you cant turn over if you have to, when you have such a configuration of leadership.
Carson, Minneapolis Foundation President
