Initiative Foundation

The Initiative Foundation works daily to strengthen the economy and communities of Central Minnesota: Through loans and financing, they invest in businesses that create quality jobs. Through grants and programs, they invest in organizations that make their economy strong. Through donor services and charitable funds, they help people invest in their communities. They believe that local people have the greatest sum of initiative, knowledge and relationships to achieve a brighter future. Their strategic framework is based on the philosophy that the economy, community and philanthropy are interconnected. Gains or losses in one area can either propel or restrain prosperity. The Foundation's initiatives and investments are intended to have maximum impact on the system, unlocking the power of each community. Community assets drive local business growth.  Business growth attracts new revenue and creates quality jobs.  Revenue provides fuel for local philanthropy, which helps to fund community assets. Since 1986, the Initiative Foundation has invested millions throughout the region through targeted grants and business financing investments.
