The Community Ecocycle in Place-Based Systems Change: A Tool for Funder and Community Reflection and Action
Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
This tool is intended to help funders who have elected to invest in place-based systems change efforts in two ways. First, funders can use this tool to consider the dynamic, natural, and necessary developmental phases through which communities move. Second, the tool can help funders engage with communities to co-design investment approaches that better match communities’ current and future assets and needs based on their developmental phase.
