About Community, Not a Commute tells the story of the community’s journey toward realizing that vision of opportunities for all—in particular, the role of public funding joined with private philanthropy in the Central Corridor Funders Collaborative. The Funders Collaborative served as both a cushion and a lubricant in the complex multi-sector effort to ensure the rail project delivered benefits to the communities beyond the rail. This report describes the goals of this ten-year philanthropic partnership; how we invested in community initiatives and the results achieved; what partners learned; and how the ripple effects of the work reach farther than we envisioned.
