The Initiative Foundation works daily to strengthen the economy and communities of Central Minnesota:
Through loans and financing, we invest in businesses that create quality jobs.
Through grants and programs, we invest in organizations that make our economy strong. Through donor services and charitable funds, we help people invest in their communities.
We believe that local people have the greatest sum of initiative, knowledge and relationships to achieve a brighter future.
What We Do
A single gift to the Initiative Foundation strengthens the communities, economy and philanthropy in Central Minnesota. Every gift of $1 returns an average of $4.50 in Foundation grants, business loans and scholarships back to the region.
