Impact Monterey County Network
2018-2021 Strategic Plan ​

“There is an awareness that to the extent that there is a network ‘center’ it is about being in service of and helping to connect the whole, as well as bring in the ‘periphery;’ there is an emphasis on contribution and creating value over deferring to credentials and the usual suspects; people lead with a spirit of openness; and there is an overall effort towards growing the pie, not just carving it up into smaller pieces.” 


Together, a healthy, safe, and thriving Monterey County


- To provide an ‘umbrella’ under which collaboratives, programs, and institutions are aligning their work with the priority areas

- To work collaboratively to spotlight key strategic efforts and common outcomes across our communities





At the systems level, the IMC Network provides the vision, passion, leadership, and awareness to prioritize and sustain efforts to ensure long-term commitment for achieving the community’s vision. 

At the operational level, the IMC Network provides the infrastructure and staffing to support connections across multiple sectors; develops and supports co-creators and their partners; conducts marketing and outreach to engage new partners; provides the communications link; supports collaborative efforts to fundraise and to measure the impact of local efforts. 

At the capacity building level, the IMC Network brokers and provides resources to collective impact initiatives leading change efforts around the four community priorities and promotes and supports collaboration across a network of community partners.
