Giving to - and through - the Initiative Foundation

Each year, more than 2,000 donors support the Initiative Foundation's mission to build and sustain thriving communities in Central Minnesota. Everything we do is powered by generous people and generous investments. We appreciate each gift for the special reasons it was given, and we work tirelessly to maximize contributions through funding partnerships and financial accountability.
