During times of economic uncertainty, how can universities develop and sustain resources for engagement efforts? This article focuses on how a university-wide research and outreach coalition at Michigan State University called Families and Communities Together (FACT) is exploring a variety of funding approaches and implementing successful strategies for supporting engagement. By making the best use of its collaborative and multidisciplinary structure, by demonstrating impacts and maintaining visibility, and by building long-term partnerships, the coalition has been successful in forging alliances with government and nonprofits, sharing resources, and sustaining funding for engagement work.
