Powering Possible.



At the Initiative Foundation, we believe that thriving communities require healthy partnerships.

Strong public-private partnerships help to sustain and grow local businesses, provide a skilled workforce, create quality jobs, support children and families, and provide an environment that helps attract and retain quality jobs and workers.

Our 2017-2019 priorities are strategically targeted to:

  • Support and grow existing nonprofit and for-profit businesses
  • Help new entrepreneurs with start up businesses and social enterprise ventures
  • Cultivate the next generation of leaders living and working in our region

We do this primarily through Innovation Fund Grants
