Democratizing Valuation: A Guide for Multi-Sector Collaboratives


Multi-sector collaboratives (MSCs) are a promising strategy for moving the needle on high-priority health and equity issues. However, given their breadth and long-term prevention orientation, these collaboratives often struggle to demonstrate their potential cost-effectiveness, return-on-investment, and/or non-financial impacts. 

This guide presents real-world examples and a simplified set of valuation tools and processes that MSCs can use to clarify and convey the value of their activity to core supporters and potential contributors. The files below are the narrative descriptions and excel spreadsheets for three partner sites that can inform valuation work on similar issues.
