Tell us about an innovative organization built on effective service delivery, sustainable revenue and operations, integrated local support community, and unique characteristics!


Our Case Studies provide a window on how people are finding ways to make significant contributions to their communities and cities. These are stories of organizational courage, the stories of people leading organizations with unique and successful models of delivering social good in the face of difficult demands.


Cardus is always looking for organizations with unique and successful models of delivering social good in the face of difficult demands. We're seeking examples of social infrastructure that challenge and raise the bar for how things currently work in different sectors of society. By studying these successes across North America, we hope to strengthen the common good. We welcome your nominations for ongoing case study work.


Benefits for participating organizations: Participating organizations receive an analysis of the inner workings of their organization. Reports offer in-depth objective research that can be shared with donors, board members, the media, and surrounding community.



Contact Social Cities program Director, Milton Friesen, if this is of interest or you would like to suggest an organization.
