Innovia Foundation Announces Grants Redesign

Posted on November 18, 2019

colorful plantSince 1974, Innovia Foundation has been igniting generosity to promote vibrant and sustainable communities where every person thrives. Over that time, we have granted more than $81 million to organizations changing lives for the better throughout our twenty-county region and beyond.

This past year, Innovia Foundation underwent a robust strategic planning process that helped us clarify our mission, vision and values. To learn more about this process and our new strategic plan, please click here.

Concurrent with our strategic planning, we completed a redesign of our responsive grant program to better align our funding opportunities with our mission and vision.

This was a comprehensive process that included researching other community foundations, working with an independent grant consultant, convening our Grants Committee and advisory groups, surveying our nonprofit partners and coordinating grantee focus groups. We care deeply about the needs and perspectives of our community partners, so feedback from participants was incorporated into our new grant programming.

As the community foundation for Eastern Washington and North Idaho, we are committed to supporting the important work of our partners and are excited to share our new Community Grant Guidelines, which you can access here. You can also click here to access a recording of an informational webinar about our new Community Grant Program.
