In a new case study for the Stan­ford Social Inno­va­tion Review (SSIR), Casey Foun­da­tion Pres­i­dent & CEO Patrick McCarthy and Vice Pres­i­dent for Exter­nal Affairs Lisa Hamil­ton share three com­mu­ni­ca­tions insights gained from the Foundation’s long-stand­ing KIDS COUNT platform.

The case study, part of The Case for Com­mu­ni­ca­tions series pro­duced for SSIR in part­ner­ship with the Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Net­work, describes how the project began as a data book that used com­mon indi­ca­tors to rank states, cre­at­ing a pow­er­ful com­mu­ni­ca­tions vehi­cle on behalf of chil­dren. The KIDS COUNT brand has expand­ed to include pol­i­cy reports and data snap­shots that con­tin­u­ous­ly lever­aged the exper­tise of KIDS COUNT orga­ni­za­tions in all 50 states, the U.S. Vir­gin Islands and Puer­to Rico, while the Foun­da­tion cre­at­ed an online Data Cen­ter that engaged jour­nal­ists and became a ready resource for child advocates.

The series is pub­lished as a new report from the Foun­da­tion is released, trac­ing the quar­ter-cen­tu­ry evo­lu­tion of KIDS COUNT into a crit­i­cal phil­an­thropic platform.
