Case Study: District Councils Collaborative of Minneapolis and St. Paul


Fox Advancement unearths unique insights to drive a compelling case for support.


The District Councils Collaborative of Saint Paul and Minneapolis (DCC) was formed in 2006 to facilitate neighborhood participation in the development of the Central Corridor Light Rail Transit (CCLRT) and ensure that the needs and interests of residents and businesses are represented.

The Challenge

Charged with organizing the community engagement, planning, and development efforts ahead of the Green Line Central Corridor Light Rail Transit (LRT) in 2014, DCC needed to ramp-up fundraising quickly.

The Answer

Fox Advancement worked with DCC to analyze its existing fundraising structure, identify opportunities for growth, and develop and implement an aggressive fundraising plan and compelling case for support.

The Result

DCC was able to increase their contributed revenue and invest their resources in effective grassroots advocacy efforts, edifying and creating a united voice for Central Corridor communities.
