TMCF 2007 ANNUAL REPORT 

Five Innovations for America's Future
Innovation. Most corporations and organizations know that uncovering a wealth of great untapped ideas, out-of-box thinking and building an organization in which invention and creativity play a vigorous role in the culture, can bring transformational results. At the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, innovation springs from a conscious, purposeful focus on identifying areas of opportunities
that have a broad and long-term impact on students, member universities, industry and society. From this purposeful analysis, Five Innovations for America's Future were identified and are now part of TMCF's expanded mission. Leadership Development; Capacity Building; School Reform; Research; and Talent Sourcing. At first glance, one might not view these five strategic innovations as new or different. However, the difference is in the application; TMCF is using its Five Innovations to get quantifiable results and to change the landscape of education, leadership preparation, talent development, industry, communities and societal progress.
