Creating a Movement to be Cool, Creative, Connected, and Prosperous
Our organization was created through a collective impact approach to community development, resource coordination, and tireless effort from stakeholders. Learn more about our journey below.
Executing Our Vision
Implementing comprehensive strategies on a regional scale can be difficult and highly complicated. With many moving parts, we recognize the constant need to adapt to meet the needs of our ever-evolving region, while maintaining the integrity of our collective vision and priorities.
We create a Warehouse of Ideas containing recommendations on potential activities to help achieve the regional vision. This brings people together and aids in developing action plans for various focus areas. The Warehouse of Ideas also gives the organization room to grow as strategic partners assess high-value programs for implementation, quantify the results of past efforts, and anticipate challenges and opportunities for the future.

SECURE NONPROFIT STATUS
Through building relationships and facilitating communication with stakeholders, original supporters raise community investment in Q2030, helping it to become a full-fledged organization funded by Quad Citizens.
During this year, we incorporate our organization and secured our status as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. We also establish our board of directors, hire staff, and establish the backbone of the Q2030 entity.
