The Intersector Project seeks to empower practitioners in the business, government, and non-profit sectors to collaborate to solve problems that cannot be solved by one sector alone. We present real examples of collaborations in many places, across many issues and illuminate the tools that make them successful.

Created for practitioners from every sector,
The Intersector Project’s Toolkit is a guide whose goal is to enable leaders to design and implement successful intersector solutions.

One of the country’s leading libraries on U.S.
cross-sector collaborations, our case studies profile leadership and tactics from successful collaborations in a variety of issue areas, including community revitalization, health and wellbeing, infrastructure, education, and environmental conservation.

On The Intersector Project’s blog, we
investigate and provide insights into intersector collaborations around the country.


The Toolkit is a guide to help diagnose, design, implement, and assess successful intersector collaborations. While collaborations differ in their goals, scope, and size, practitioners from any sector can use these tools to navigate their challenges.
