Developed by Seabourne Consulting, experts in Welcome! Let's get started.


We’ve been on a journey these past six months refining Community Commons to better meet your needs. You told us what you wanted and we listened.

Here's What We've Developed to Meet Your Needs: 

You Want to Search

Use the comprehensive keyword search function to discover everything you’ve been looking for on Community Commons, as well as relevant tools and resources you didn’t even know you needed. The Commons has over 1,500 tools, resources, and stories, all of which have been curated just for you and come from trusted organizations and thought-leaders.

You Need to Save and Share Favorite Content

When you find the perfect resource or tool to support your work, favorite it for easy access next time. You can also share what you find by clicking the arrow at the bottom of each card.   

You Like Stories of Success

Community Commons has always valued storytelling as a way to share community successes and provide important context to data. Whether original stories written by our team and network of contributors, or curated stories from around the web, you'll find a plethora  of examples and encouragement to drive your work forward.

You Like Mapping Tools

Visualizing data in maps is a great way to convey community needs and ongoing work to stakeholders and funders. Now, find a collection of terrific mapping and data visualization tools all in one place.

You Appreciate our Support Team

So do we! We know you have limited time to get lots of work done, so we’ve put together FAQs and a chat feature so you can quickly get answers to your questions. You can also always email us at [email protected] if you can't find what you need. 

We're excited for you to make Community Commons a regular part of your workday again. We hope you find what you're looking for on the Commons, and if not, let us know. This is just the beginning of our expanded offering of tools and resources to support your needs!
