CMCF Adds Support to Enterprise Academy

May 25, 2018

CMCF_Enterprise_5-16-18.pngA special thanks to our friends and partners at Central Minnesota Community Foundation for their generous $150,000 grant to support the Initiative Foundation's Enterprise Academy.

The Central Minnesota Community Foundation joins a host of esteemed supporters and sponsors—including Wells Fargo, the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development, the Neighborhood Development Center and the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation—in inspiring and supporting emerging entrepreneurs in the region.

The Initiative Foundation is one of six Central Minnesota organizations to receive funding through the Legislature-approved 2018 Minnesota State Opportunity Grant. The purpose of the funding is to enhance long-term self-sufficiency for Central Minnesota communities of color by improving education, housing and economic outcomes and to create positive, long-lasting impact on the community.

Learn more about the Enterprise Academy in the most recent edition of IQ Magazine.
