Body paragraph

Often, we learn more from our failures than our successes. In that light, in partnership with the Fund for Democratic Communities (F4DC)—a local private foundation in Greensboro, North Carolina—we bring you a vitally important story about a dream that fell short, a dream that was known as the Renaissance Community Co-op (RCC), and the vital lessons that were learned from that experience.

[See also The Ballad of the RCC, or “Nice Try. Now Try Again" by Sohnie Black, Ed Whitfield, and Marnie Thompson, at Nonprofit Quarterly. -ed.]


NPQ uses a range of media channels to help advance critical conversations that can refine nonprofit and social movement policy and practice.
