Mike Bloomberg’s Groundbreaking Use of Public-Private Partnerships

During the Bloomberg Administration, New York City expanded the scope and purpose of private sector collaborations, and improved their effectiveness and management structure, according to a report released today by Freedman Consulting, LLC and Bloomberg Philanthropies at the inaugural Robin Hood Investors Conference in New York City. A dozen non-profit organizations working directly with New York City agencies have raised more than $1.4 billion in philanthropic contributions collectively since 2002.

These partnerships galvanized businesses, non-profits, philanthropies, and individual supporters to solve problems in areas from education and criminal justice, to the environment and health. The report details projects that have had a great impact on New York City, such as the High Line, the Applied Sciences initiative, and the extensive relief efforts after Hurricane Sandy, providing a roadmap for leaders seeking to implement similar approaches.
