Publication date: 6/30/2014, pages 1-23

The William Caspar Graustein Memorial Fund case study captures the story of the 20-year history of the Memorial Fund, with particular emphasis on how the organization catalyzed networks and collaboration under the leadership of prior Executive Director, David Nee. Under Nee’s leadership, the Memorial Fund has emphasized engaging the broad community, catalyzing policy change, and supporting networks and collaboration within and across sectors with the idea that improving outcomes for children involved many stakeholders working towards a common vision and agenda. The case study ends when Nee retired from the organization in March 2014 and a new leader, R. David Addams stepped in as the new Executive Director and with Nee hoping that Addams and the organization would perpetuate the legacy of community engagement and collaboration, as well as promote the values that he and his team of ten staff and eight board members had worked so hard for so long to establish.
