Publication date: 
October, 2012

Through the Scaling What Works Initiative, Grantmakers for Effective Organizations (GEO) is exploring how learning together can contribute to scaling good work and superficially how grantmakers are using learning communities to grow nonprofit impact. This guide stems from the desire to learn more about to best support learning communities. It offers key findings from a research report produced by GEO by the Research Center for Leadership in Action at New York University's Robert F. Wagner School of Public Service on the design elections, positive practices and outcomes of six learning  communities in the field.
