Igniting Generosity at the 2019 Annual Reception

Posted on October 8, 2019

A big thank you to all of you who were able to join us at our 2019 Annual Reception. It was a packed house as we celebrated the impact and generosity of donors and community leaders throughout our region. For those who could not join us, click here to watch a full recording of the event.

Our keynote speaker, Deb Markley, did an amazing job rolling out the data from our new transfer of wealth study and inspiring us with the possibilities and opportunities that await us. If just five percent of the transfer of wealth was designated for our local communities, over $2 billion could be invested in new endowments to positively impact our region for generations to come You can read more about the transfer of wealth here.

In addition, we shared highlights from our recently completed Strategic Framework, including our new mission, vision and values, and strategic focus areas that will guide our work in the coming years.

Innovia Foundation’s mission is to ignite generosity that transforms lives and communities. 

Our vision is vibrant and sustainable communities where every person has the opportunity to thrive.

We are committed to being innovativeinclusive and collaborative in everything we do.
