Columbia County Raise the Blues Campaign

About the Campaign

Inspired by our mission to ignite generosity that transforms lives and communities, Innovia Foundation has joined with Blue Mountain Community Foundation (BMCF) and local leaders to launch the Columbia County Raise the Blues Campaign and invest in a brighter future for Columbia County. 

A local generosity movement, the campaign invites residents across Columbia County to join with their neighbors in giving back to the places they call home. Gifts to the campaign support local endowments benefiting Columbia County, providing donors with a tremendous opportunity to make a lasting impact.

The Columbia County Raise the Blues Campaign is driven by two funds that will catalyze opportunities for local students and the wider community: the Columbia County Forever Fund and the LaunchNW Promise Scholarship.

Columbia County Forever Fund

The Columbia County Forever Fund is an unrestricted community endowment that will exist in perpetuity to create a vibrant and sustainable future for our community in Columbia County. A gift to this fund creates a transformational impact now, and for generations to come, by ensuring that dollars are available to support local needs and opportunities as they evolve.

Columbia County LaunchNW Scholarship Fund

The Columbia County LaunchNW Scholarship Fund will ensure students in Columbia County have both the opportunity and support needed to pursue the education of their choice and meet their full potential. With ripple effects that benefit the entire community, the fund will support the students and families who need it most.
