The Initiative Foundation understands that thriving nonprofit organizations are critical to thriving communities. They work to remove barriers to employment, enhance local economic development, provide critical safety net services and increase civic participation. They respond to emerging needs and opportunities of children and their families - including returning veterans, seniors, new Americans, youth at risk and people with disabilities.
Through our Thriving Organizations Partnership program, the Initiative Foundation intends to help mitigate the risks faced by nonprofit organizations so that they can provide more effective services throughout our central Minnesota region. Learn more...
