2023 Funding Theme
The Community Grants Program is made possible by donors who have established funds at Innovia for the purpose of addressing critical needs and compelling opportunities in communities across the region, with input from local advisory committees.
At the recommendation of local advisory committees, this year’s primary focus will be to support proposals that have the potential to increase social connections and help communities develop more supporting, caring and inclusive relationships.
“While we are committed to funding projects across all our impact areas, our local community partners recognize the need to re-establish community bonds after the isolation resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as widening political and social divides,” said Innovia CEO Shelly O’Quinn.
