An economy thrives when it has a skilled workforce and locally owned businesses that provide quality jobs.
The Initiative Foundation’s combination of targeted business financing and consulting services helps to leverage private investment and create living-wage employment in the region.
We believe that thriving communities require healthy public-private 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.
From 2012-2016, the Initiative Foundation's goals to help communities thrive are to ...
•Increase regional business growth and sales revenue.
•Increase workforce training services and caring adult connections for children and youth.
•Improve quality of life by improving access to, and awareness of, natural resources and recreational amenities.
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.
