Become more than a donor. Become an investor in Central Minnesota communities.

THE INITIATIVE FOUNDATION'S nonprofit grants, business loans, and leadership programs help people to help themselves. With the support of thousands, the Foundation is committed to developing an economic climate in which every person has an opportunity to achieve success. Working with our nonprofit partners, the Initiative Foundation works to assist Central Minnesota climb from crisis to stability by extending the ladder from self-sufficiency to excellent employment and a higher quality of life.

Through our grants and programs, we have supported dislocated worker training, military transitions for veterans, youth career opportunities, and exporting initiatives that bring new dollars into Central Minnesota. We also work with local governments to connect with businesses, revitalize downtowns, and enhance environmental and recreational amenities that improve our quality of life.

For every dollar you invest, we give back an average of $6.19 through grants and business investments. That's a return of 519%. (Compare that to your 401K!) Gifts to our endowment are also DOUBLED by matching contributions from The McKnight Foundation. The Initiative Foundation is rated a 4-star charity by Charity Navigator and meets all Charities Review Council standards.

Thanks for visiting our GiveMN page! Together, we will strengthen the economy, community and philanthropy of Central Minnesota!
